One of the perks of living at the Jersey Shore is that the ocean is a stone's throw away. That being said, many people enjoy swimming during the summer, especially in the sea water. While swimming is a grand ol' time, you should make sure to care for your swimsuit, as improper care will exacerbate the wearing-out process.
After every adventure in the water, whether it be in salt, fresh, or chlorinated water, you should rinse off your swimsuit in cool water before letting it dry. By doing so, you will remove all the particles that can wreck havoc on the fabric. When laying out your swimsuit to dry, hang it over the shower rod or over a clothesline outside, but try to expose it to as little sunlight as possible. You can also alternate swimsuits to reduce the amount of wear and tear on one kind!
By taking the few extra minutes each time to care for the well-being of your swimsuit, you will get a few extra summers out of it. Whatever you put into your laundry, you will get out of it, both figuratively and literally! For more tips on proper swimsuit care, or to have yours cleaned by a professional, give us a call today!
