HOW TO TAKE A GREATER CARE OF YOUR PIKINI

Our collection of high quality swimwear is created to be enduring. But, just like everything in life, the more you take care of it the longer it will last.

 

In today’s blog, we are deepening on this matter! Tips to extend the life of your PIKINI:

 

HAND WASH COLD

It reduces colour fading, protects the fabric and requires less use of energy

  • Rinse your swimwear right after swimming in salt or chlorinated water
  • Wash your pieces separately. The newer they are, the more excess dye washes out. This is normal and will stop after a few washes.
  • Before putting it away, hand wash cold with care
  • Do not scrub!
  • Do not use fabric softener

IMPORTANT NOTE: Before stocking it until next summer, machine wash it with a gentle program at 30º to eliminate all remnants of salt, chlorine or sun block

 

USE NEUTRAL SOAP

  • Harsh detergents are not good for swimwear. Rather, you need to use neutral/mil soaps
  • Go with an eco option! There are many eco soaps that don’t put at risk the environment and are as effective as the conventional ones.

 

DRY FLAT IN SHADE

  • Avoid drying your swimwear in direct sunlight
  • Remember, if sun is not optimal for swimwear, the iron is less optimal! Never iron, tremble dry or dry clean!

 

AVOID

  • Rough surfaces
  • Packing when wet
  • Excessive lotion, sunscreen, oil and chlorine as it may alter the stretch and coloration of the item over time. This is not a manufacturing defect. Please be mindful of your application.
  • Do not bleach
  • Do not stock inside plastic bags/cases over a long period of time as it can stain the swimwear.
