Caring for your Garments & Making them Last

The golden rule: To keep things simple, always follow the care instructions given on the label of your garments. To give you an idea of what is required, this usually means:

  1. Avoid wearing new swimwear in the sauna or jacuzzi. Try to stick to older garments instead as saunas and jacuzzis can damage swimwear quite quickly.
  2. Try to avoid too much contact with chlorine and sunscreen and after any contact, rinse garments immediately with a detergent.
  3. Rinse swimwear immediately after every use in clean water, at the temperature recommended on the label (usually cold water or up to 30°C) using a mild liquid detergent designed for delicates.
  4. Simply give your garments a few quick dips in the water, there’s no need to wring or rub them, then rinse them with clear cold or tepid water (depending on what the label says) – it only takes 2 minutes!
  5. Drip dry - for example over the bath, on a washing line, or on a drying rack with a towel underneath. Hang bras and bikini tops by the central front panel to dry evenly. You can also dry flat on a towel.
  6. Only put garments away once they are completely dry – and, good news, never iron them!

Following these few steps is really easy and the washing process only takes 2 minutes, even by hand – plus it leaves your garments looking great for longer.
