The effects of chlorine found in pool water on your swimwear are particularly hazardous to the synthetic fibers used in their manufacture. It is very important that you rinse your swimwear thoroughly and promptly after each wearing.
After a thorough rinsing, hand wash using a gentle detergent. Disperse detergent in water, place swimsuit in cool to lukewarm water, gently agitate with your hand and then allow to soak for 15-30 minutes. Rinse again thoroughly to make sure all the detergent has been flushed out.
NEVER use vinegar in your swimwear rinse or wash. The addition of vinegar to chlorine will result in a more caustic chemical, and increase the risk to the fibers and colors.
Air dry your swimwear out of direct sunlight. We suggest you dry it flat. Never put it in a clothes dryer.
Be sure to follow the care label instructions.
Most bathing suits contain some modicum of spandex, which abrades and snaps easily. Reduce risk of snags by removing jewelry before washing and making sure there are no jagged edges on your fingernails.
Don’t wear your favorite swimsuit in a hot tub. They are not only heavily chlorinated, the high water temperatures add to the deleterious effects on your swimwear.
Suntan oils and sun blockers may cause stains or discolorations if they come into contact with your suit or cover up. Be careful when applying them.
