4 the Gals: Swimsuit Care Guide - Keeping Your Swimwear in Top Shape


At 4 the Gals, we believe in providing you with premium-quality swimwear that lasts. Taking proper care of your swimsuits not only ensures their longevity but also keeps them looking beautiful and pristine. In this blog post, we'll share valuable tips on how to care for your swimwear, protecting your investment and allowing you to enjoy your favorite pieces for seasons to come.

1. Rinse Immediately after Use

After a day at the beach or pool, rinse your swimsuit in cool water to remove chlorine, saltwater, sunscreen, and other residues. This prevents the buildup of chemicals and prolongs the lifespan of your swimwear. Avoid using hot water, as it can damage the fabric and elastic.

2. Hand Wash Gently

When it comes to cleaning your swimsuit, hand-washing is highly recommended. Fill a sink or basin with cool water and add a mild detergent specially formulated for delicates. Gently agitate the swimsuit in the water, then rinse thoroughly. Avoid wringing or twisting the fabric, as this can stretch or damage the fibers.

3. Skip the Dryer

Avoid putting your swimsuit in the dryer, as the heat can cause shrinking and damage the delicate fabric. Instead, lay it flat on a clean towel or hang it to air dry in a shady area. By allowing your swimwear to dry naturally, you'll preserve its shape and elasticity.

4. Be Mindful of Sunscreen

While sunscreen is essential for protecting your skin, it can lead to discoloration or staining on your swimsuit. To minimize the effects of sunscreen, try applying it at least 15 minutes before wearing your swimwear and allow it to fully absorb. In addition, choose sunscreens that are less likely to leave oily residues or have heavy dyes.

5. Avoid Rough Surfaces

Take care to avoid sitting or lounging on rough surfaces, such as concrete or textured pool decks, while wearing your swimsuit. This can cause snags or tears in the fabric. When reclining, consider using a towel or a soft pool float to protect your swimwear.
