Step 1: Rinse the swimsuit with fresh water
Rinse your swimsuit in lukewarm water to get rid of all the salt, perspiration and chlorine. At the beach or by the pool? Make it a habit to use the shower after a bath, before going back suntanning. Chlorine that is not washed away could eat away at your suit, degrading the fabric.
Step 2: After a day at the beach, hand-wash it with soap
Machine washing is a harsh clothing care process. The movements, twisting, centrifugation etc, manipulate fibers, seams and trimmings which may result in damage. By handwashing you have total control of the items being washed and can adjust your method using your hands. For example, when removing stains, you can focus on these spots only. We recommend that you wash your swimsuit frequently, and to remove stains as soon as possible.
Use a mild detergent to get rid of stains and remains of salt, chlorine and sun creams
Choosing a fitting detergent for your clothes is important. Using the wrong detergent can actually destroy your garments. Never use laundry detergents such as powders as they are far too harsh for synthetic stretch fabric and will often cause the color to fade and break the fiber bindings. Even just a little bit of detergent can lead to color fading.
Use a mild detergent, we recommend a mild wash soap like this, to gently rub any stains from sun-creams and oils off the fabric. Rinse well in lukewarm water.
