Swimsuits for Summer
Caring for your Swimsuit
After swimming in the ocean or the pool, always rinse your
swimsuit with regular tap water. In doing so, you will eliminate
most of the salt and chlorine which are the principle chemicals
that affect the Nylon and spandex fibers. From time to time, you
should also HAND WASH (never in a washing machine even at gentle
cycle) your suit with a cool water liquid detergent (like Zero or
Woolite). Never use bleach!
It is highly recommended that you HANG DRY your swimsuit. Make
sure that it is dried in an artificially lit environment (regular
home lighting will do fine) and not outside or the clothesline.
The sun naturally causes colored fabrics to fade.
Avoid putting your swimsuit away until it is completely dry. If it
is stored while still wet or humid, it could become discolored.
For the same reason avoid leaving it in a bag or a damp towel.
4) Oils and Lotions
When applying oil based sun tan lotions, minimize direct contact
with your swimsuit as the oils naturally cause the swimsuit
elastics to breakdown.
