All swimwear should come with specific care instructions when you purchase your new item. However, they can be missed easily or become detached from your swimwear so here is a swimwear care guide to keep your swimwear in the best condition for as long as possible.
|Rinse your swimwear after swimming – wear in the shower when you get out (but don’t use any shower gels!)|
|Rinse again by hand in cold water after removing your swimwear|
|Hang to dry in the shade or inside to dry naturally and ensure fully dried before wearing again|
|If you’ve been swimming in open water, ensure any sand or dirt is removed as soon as possible|
|Be cautious in spas or heated pool as these have extra chemicals in and so can shorten the life of your swimwear|
|Sunscreen can discolour your swimwear so when applying try not to get it on your swimwear|
|Avoid leaving your swimwear rolled up in the towel after use – this allows the chlorine to have more time in the fabric and also allows bacteria to breed|
|Don’t wash your swimwear in a washing machine. Washing machines and detergents can be very harsh and will damage your swimwear even if done just the once.|
|Do not use an iron as the high temperatures can cause your swimsuit to disintegrate – if you want to get rid of any wrinkles, rinse in water again and the creases should fall out|
|Never use chlorine bleach even if your costume is chlorine resistant, as chlorine resistant does not mean it is totally chlorine proof|
Nylon/Lycra Swimwear : Any swimwear containing polyamide or elastane (nylon or lycra) has very limited resistance to chlorinated water and so needs to have extra care. Swimwear manufacturers say that nylon/lycra swimwear will last about 20 hours in the pool so wash it out as quickly as possible in cold water that is free from chemicals.
If in any doubt at all then contact the manufacturers of your swimwear for specific instructions.
