There are many products on the market for washing fine washables. Our recommendation is to hand wash your finest Lycra based products with a biodegradable soap in tepid water. Don’t soak for too long, and rinse well. Hang or lay flat to dry away from heat source. If you must wash your swimwear in the machine, use a mesh wash bag to protect its shape. We recommend washing your suit after every wear. Our favorite washes are Sport Suds (made in Canada) and Forever New Swimwear wash. Both are available in store.
Sport Suds has an advanced formula that gently cleans and rinses away completely. It is safe and effective for all washable clothing, and eliminates odors and removes residue left behind by other soaps. It is highly biodegradable, septic safe and non toxic.
