Your Summer in Style!
Swimwear will last much longer if you bear in mind following instructions:
- Rinse your swimwear with clean, lukewarm tap water after every swim to remove chloride and seawater from the fabric as water with a high chloride content is known to bleach certain fabrics.
- If the swimwear is soiled, you can wash it by hand in lukewarm water. You can add a small amount of mild soap (do not use any bleach or separate stain cleaners as they tend to be aggressive) Let the swimwear soak for a couple of minutes in the soapy water but rinse it thoroughly afterwards. Always drip dry your swimwear. Don’t dry clean your swim or bathing wear.
- Dry your swimwear away from direct sunlight, preferably flat on a towel or on your drying rack. Do not wash your swimwear in a washing machine or dryer. Lycra is fabric containing stretch, which can be damaged in a washing machine or a dryer. Don’t iron your swimwear.
- Only store your swimwear when it is completely dry. When stored wet, your swimwear can discolour. This is also the reason to avoid leaving your swimwear in a bag or wet towel.
- Fluorescent colours are not light true/colour steady; they will discolour much faster in bright sunlight and chloride than other fabrics. The longer the time in the sun, the faster the fabric will discolour.
- Avoid contact with rough surfaces (parapets, rocks, slides, …). Swimwear is made of nylon /lycra and can fluff after rubbing.
- Avoid whirlpools, especially when wearing fluorescent swimwear, as it can be damaged this way.
- Avoid direct contact with sunscreen products as they can affect the elasticity and stain the fabric.
- Complaints following damage after wrongful use will not be met. We can not guarantee any products against damage from the sun or chloride exposure.
