- Best way to clean is to wear swimwear in your post-swim shower.
- To hand wash, rinse off swimwear as soon as possible in cool tap water after each wear. (Additionally, soaking in tap water for 30 minutes is even better for the fabrics, since it removes most chemicals, salt, sand, and body oils that can damage the fabric!)
- To remove rest of chemicals, salt, sand, and body oils, refill sink with tap water and add 1 teaspoon or less of a gentle liquid laundry detergent and swish the swimsuits for several minutes then rinse off with tap water. (I learned that shampoo to wash suits is great too - just not combination products that contain conditioner!)
- Air-dry your swimsuit - but out of direct sunlight!
- For storage, place swimsuits flat and in a dry area. (Do not hang or store where swimsuits could gather any moisture, since this would cause mildew growth) If you're storing it for the season, best to store in fabric garment bag. (Plastic bags aren't the best choice since they help breed mildew and bacteria, which we do not want!)
- DO NOT use powdered detergent because it may not dissolve completely or rinse away well.
- DO NOT use chlorine bleach to whiten or remove stains on suits.
- DO NOT wring the suits - this can cause damage.
- If possible, wear older suits in hot tub, since hot tubs love to ruin, stretch, and fade swimsuits with the chemicals and high heat :(
