How to Care for your swimsuit after chlorine

Basic Care

Over exposing swimwear to the sunlight will cause your suit to fade. High amounts of chlorine can also be damaging to your swimwear. Hotels, public pools and spas carry a much higher percentage of chlorine. Be mindful of rinsing off your suits after you take a dip! Also, try to alternate your swimsuits. A swimsuit typically takes 24 hours after washing to return to its original shape. Next, be careful when applying sunscreen as generous amounts of sunscreen can stain swimwear. If it does stain, sprinkle suit with baking soda or dip stain in one part white vinegar and three parts warm water to remove. Lastly, avoid sitting or lying on rough surfaces as pilling may occur. Always use a towel underneath!

Washing

Make sure you do not put your suit in washing machine. Instead, fill a sink with cold water and rinse suits separately after each use. Rinse suit in Summer Solutions sold at Swimspot in-store and online to prevent color fading and material aging.

Drying

Don’t wring your suit or put it in the dryer. Lay it flat to dry. Make sure you do not dry clean or bleach to prevent discoloration.
