Rinse After Swimming
Even if you’re not able to wash your swimsuit immediately after coming out of the pool or sea, you should at least rinse it.
Salt and chlorine can cause colour to fade and even facilitate the growth of mildew.
Hand Wash Only
Hand-washing is a chore, but a necessity — especially since it pretty much ensures gentle cleaning.
If you absolutely don’t have the time, then at least put your swimsuit in a mesh laundry bag before chucking it into the washing machine.
Use Cold Water
Cold water and a mild detergent make the perfect washing combo.
You wouldn’t want anything to use anything too harsh on the fabrics.
Putting your swimsuit in the dryer will only make the colour fade faster, so leave it to dry on the table, chair or even a door knob.
But don’t leave it out in the sun — that can affect colour too.
Don't Wear It Into A Hot Tub
The chemicals and heat can cause some degree of damage, so put on an older swimsuit you wouldn’t really feel sad about binning.
