1. Rinse Immediately After Use

After enjoying a dip in the pool or the ocean, rinse your swimsuit with fresh water as soon as possible. This removes chlorine, salt, sweat, and sunscreen, which can damage the fabric if left untreated. Rinse by hand or use a mild soap-free cleanser, gently working the water through the swimsuit. Avoid wringing or twisting the fabric, as this can cause stretching and damage.

2. Hand Wash with Care

Hand washing is the preferred method for most swimsuit fabrics. Fill a basin or sink with cool water and add a small amount of gentle detergent specifically formulated for delicate fabrics. Avoid using regular laundry detergents, as they can be too harsh and affect the fabric's elasticity and color. Gently swirl the swimsuit in the soapy water and let it soak for a few minutes. Afterward, rinse the swimsuit thoroughly with cool water to remove any traces of detergent.

3. Avoid Harsh Chemicals and Hot Water

Harsh chemicals, hot water, and excessive heat can damage the fabric and result in color fading, loss of elasticity, and shape distortion. Avoid using bleach or other harsh chemicals on your swimsuits. Additionally, hot water can cause the fibers to break down faster. Stick to cool water for both rinsing and hand washing your swimwear.

4. Gently Drying and Storing

After washing your swimsuit, gently squeeze out excess water, avoiding wringing or twisting. Lay the swimsuit flat on a clean towel and roll it up, gently pressing to absorb as much moisture as possible. Avoid hanging or placing your swimsuit in direct sunlight or a dryer, as this can cause colors to fade and fabric to stretch or shrink. Once mostly dry, lay it flat to finish air-drying in a cool, shaded area. Store your swimsuit in a dry location away from direct sunlight that may cause fading. Avoid storing swimsuits when they are not completely dry, as this can invite mildew and damage the fabric.
