How To

How-To | Care for Swimwear

May 13, 2021

When it comes to cleaning your bathing suits, it’s not sink or swim. Our foolproof tricks let you wash them clean of grime, sunscreen and sweat stains, and strong chlorine smells, all while preventing fading and loss of elasticity.

GATHER THESE TOOLS: Wash & Stain Bar, Scented Vinegar, Wash Tub Basin, Sport Detergent, Mesh Washing Bag

Step 1: Target Stains

Pretreat stains with the Wash & Stain Bar. Run the bar under warm water and work into stains—think sunscreen, grass, dirt, fruit, ice cream. Don’t forget the underwire, straps, and draw strings, where stains or perspiration can accumulate.

Step 2: Pretreat Odors

Stinky suit? Nix smells from chlorine, perspiration, sunscreen, the ocean, and more by mixing a capful or two of Scented Vinegar with warm water in a sink, tub, or Wash Tub Basin for up to 30 minutes.

Step 3: Handwash

Fix a bath of warm water and 1 capful of Sport Detergent—formulated to absorb odors and preserve the fit and color of performancewear—and submerge your suit. Create a mini whirlpool by agitating the water with your hands and leave to soak for 30 minutes. Then, rinse the suit well under the faucet while gently squeezing out water. Avoid ringing or twisting.

Step 4: Or Machine Wash

Handwashing is always the most gentle washing method, but machine washing can be just as delicate with the right solutions. First, flip pieces inside out and insert them into a Mesh Washing Bag. This will prevent bathing suits from snagging in the drum of the machine and protect clasps, ties, and embellishments. Select a delicate cycle, low spin, and cool or warm water.

Step 5: Lay Flat To Dry

To ensure your suit lasts way beyond one season, steer clear of the dryer! The heat will reduce elasticity and weaken the fabric.
