Swimsuits

  • Always hand wash your suit in cold water, never put it in a washing machine, even on gentle, the tugging will break the elastic and make your suit stretch out.
  • Use a gentle soap (or dish soap) to wash it with. (Chemicals in Woolite eat away at the elastics).
  • Do not twist your suit to dry, dampen the suit with a towel to remove excess water.
  • Do not let your suit dry in the sun, it will fade. Preferably you want to let it lay flat to dry in the shade.
  • Make sure you rinse your suit well, whether you have been in salt water, or Chlorine.
  • Chlorine WILL fade your suit if you are in it too long. If the smell of Chlorine is very strong do not stay in for long. Hot Tubs/Spas with chlorine will discolor and can damage your suit, avoid them!
  • Red suits may bleed just like a red shirt would when wet, so don't lay on a white towel.
  • Do not sit directly in sand with a white or very light colored suit, sand will work it's way in your suit and may be hard to come out.
  • Avoid contact with rough surfaces as this may cause pulling to the swimwear.
  • Some sunscreens, tanning oils, and fake tans can cause damage and/or permanent marks on your swimsuit.
