If you have a tropical trip planned for summer break/live by the ocean/swim a lot during the summer, your swimsuits take a beating! And as you know, swimsuits aren’t cheap. If you keep your swimsuits clean and maintained they last so much longer and you can wear your fav for years and years. To save some $$ and keep your suits usable for longer, follow these easy steps!
- Rinse right away: Right after you get out of the ocean or pool, rinse your suit right away using a garden hose or faucet. This prevents the chemicals and salt drying into the fabric!
- Don’t machine-wash: Wash your suits by hand to make sure they don’t lose their shape. Use cold water and gentle hand soap to prevent the colors from fading.
- Let them air dry: The clothes dryer will do a number on your suits. We have all taken our suits out and stared in dismay at the bra pads all crunched up in the suit’s top. When drying them, don’t dry them in sunlight to avoid fading.
To keep your fav suit in tip top shape, follow these easy steps!
