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:
- 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.
- Try to avoid too much contact with chlorine and sunscreen and after any contact, rinse garments immediately with a detergent.
- 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.
- 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!
- 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.
- 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.
