To ensure the longevity of your garment and contribute to environmental sustainability, we have compiled a set of "Wash Smart" care instructions and valuable information for you.
"Wash Smart" Care Instructions.
To maintain the impeccable appearance of your suit, we highly recommend following these steps:
Hand Washing: For the best results, hand wash your suit separately using cold water and a gentle soap. By hand washing, you can minimize the risk of damage and ensure a thorough but delicate cleaning process.
Avoid Soaking: It is crucial not to let your suit soak for an extended period. Instead, opt for a quick wash that effectively removes dirt and residues without compromising the fabric's integrity.
Hang Dry in the Shade: After washing, hang your suit to dry in a shaded area. This practice prevents excessive exposure to sunlight, which can cause fading and damage to the fabric. By air-drying, you retain the garment's original colour and shape.
Separate Wet Suits: To prevent potential colour bleeding or damage, refrain from packing wet suits together with other garments. It is best to give your suit ample space to dry properly before storing or packing it away.
Avoid Prolonged Balling Up: Especially when your suit is still wet, try to avoid keeping it balled up for extended periods. This habit can lead to creasing, distortion, and the development of unpleasant odours. Instead, aim to unfold and hang it as soon as possible.
The Impact of Washing Clothes on Oceans:
An essential aspect of responsible garment care is understanding the impact of washing on our natural water bodies. When you wash clothing items made from synthetic materials, including recycled fabrics, tiny plastic particles called microfibers are shed.
To minimize the release of microfiber pollution into our rivers, lakes, and oceans, it is recommended to:
Gentle Washing: Gently washing your swimsuit in cold water is the most effective way to reduce the amount of microfiber pollution generated during the washing process. This approach helps to mitigate the environmental impact associated with synthetic fabric shedding.
By adopting these care instructions and garment care practices and being mindful of the consequences of washing on the environment, you can enjoy your suit while promoting sustainable choices. Together, we can contribute to the preservation of our precious water resources.
