Care Instructions


  • Turn everything inside-out to safeguard colors. Also helps with accumulation on the inside.

  • Before washing, soak your gear in a mixture of cold water and half a cup of white vinegar for 15 to 30 minutes. This helps eliminate odors while breaking down build up.

  • Use a small amount of detergent—a little less than whatever the bottle recommends for your load size.

  • Wash your clothes in cold water. (Hot water can break down textiles and leads to shrinkage.)

  • Air dry your clothes, or use the lowest heat setting on your dryer.


  • Don’t soak a swimsuit overnight. This can loosen fibers.

  • Don’t let a swimsuit dry directly in the sun. This may cause fading.

  • Don’t put a swimsuit in the dryer. The heat weakens the elasticity of the spandex. This is the same reason why you shouldn’t wear your favorite bikini in a Jacuzzi.

  • Don’t hang a swimsuit on a metal rod to dry. Hanging can alter the shape of the garment, while the metal rod could leave a rust mark that’s impossible to get out.

  • Don’t sit on rough surfaces while wearing a swimsuit. The concrete beside the pool or wood from the lounge chairs may snag the swimsuit material. Always lay down a towel before you sit.
