Take care of your bikini:
According to ConsumerSearch.com, damage happens largely because suits are made of Spandex or other stretchy fabrics — materials that can react badly to hot tub chemicals or the heat of the sun. The fabric that makes them cling just right to your body makes them vulnerable to heat and harsh chemicals.
We are going to give you some tips on how to take really good care of your suits:
– Rinse as soon as possible:
Bathing suits need rinsing even after sunbathing. Sunscreen and body lotions contain ingredients that can damage your bikini. It is important to rinse your bathing suit, thong or bikini immediately after being in a pool or Jacuzzi that uses chlorine.
– Do not use a washing machine.
All this twisting can damage a delicate bikini, leaving the strips wrinkled or stretched. For best results, wash your bathing suit by hand and use a mild soap for delicate garments.
– Rinse with cold water
And I mean rinse really well. Don´t leave any trace of soap on the fabric.
Don´t use a dryer, heat weakens the elasticity. Put the bikini in a horizontal position to dry. Don´t hang it because it can change the shape of the garment. Don’t drain it to the last drop of water. If you do so, you will damage the fibers.
– Don´t sit on rough surfaces.
This will ruin your bikini very fast. Whenever you can sit on a towel.
– Don´t iron your swimsuit
Even if your suit is wrinkled, do not iron it. The synthetic materials like Lycra or spandex will burn fast. If it is badly wrinkled, wash it in cold water and let it dry. This will solve the problem.
