What are the do's and don'ts when caring for your swimwear?
It is essential to take proper care of your swimwear, if you wish for it to last its normal lifespan. If you follow these simple care tips we have provided you with, you will tend to get plenty of life from your swimwear.
o Always hand wash your swimwear as soon as you take it off in cool or cold water. You will eliminate most of the salt and chlorine which are the principle chemicals that affect the Nylon and spandex fibers. Use a mild hand soap or a very mild detergent made for delicate fabrics. Do not soak for extended periods of time.
o Never leave wet swimwear bundled together. Avoid putting your swimsuit away until it is completely dry. If it is stored while still wet or humid, it could become discolored. Don't leave the suit soaking overnight, bundled, wadded up, or rolled in a towel. This will cause the colors to bleed.
o When applying oil based sun tan lotions, avoid direct contact with your swimsuit since the oils will naturally cause the swimsuit elastics to breakdown.
o Hand wash the swimsuit prior to the first wear to set the colors.
o Never Machine wash or tumble dry. Never Dry Clean Swimwear.
o Never Iron your Swimwear.
o Never Ever Use Bleach or Woolite.
Squeeze out excess water Very Gently and lay flat, preferably on a dry towel away from direct sun light. Long exposure to the sun will fade your swimwear over time.
