Chlorine used in pools is distributed through jets during swimming hours and can break the elastic fibers of your swimsuit. Sea salt, sweat and sunscreen are also harmful to your swimsuit’s elasticity.
Always rinse yourself (or the swimsuit) immediately after leaving a pool, spa or other swimming area. Within an hour following your swim, soak your swimsuit in water and use a soap especially created to remove any accumulated chlorine, salt, etc.
It is also better to hand wash your swimsuit with a mild detergent. Do not use chlorine. Your swimsuit should dry flat, away from sun rays which could fade it. Cords made from swimsuit material should also be treated with the same care if they are in contact with chlorinated water or salt water.
Please pay attention to your swimsuit when sitting on rough surfaces such as cement or untreated wood. It could scratch the fabric of your swimsuit and cause irreparable damage.
Regular cotton tee
We recommend the washing machine with cold water.
Always put your tee inside out so the illustration lasts longer.
Dry it in the machine at delicate cycle or, even better, dry flat.
Pima cotton tee
Made in Peru Pima cotton is a softer and more flexible fiber than regular cotton.
It tends to shrink after being washed but returns to its original shape while you wear it.
If you want it to return quickly to its original shape, hang it to dry and iron it.
You can also use a steamer so it's even quicker.
