5 tips to keep your swimwear radiant all year long

Alicia Toublanc —

You adore your June Swimwear bathing suit and want it to accompany you on all your aquatic adventures, wether at the beach, pool, or anywhere else. Between salty ocean swims, chlorinated pool dives, sunscreen applications, and the occasional sweat, your swimsuit goes through a lot. Here are some practical tips to extend its lifespan and maintain its radiance. Follow our care guide to keep your swimsuit in perfect condition.


1) Rinse it after every use

The first essential step in caring for your bikini is to rinse it with fresh water after each use, even if you've only worn it for sunbathing. Sunscreen and body oils can damage the fabric, especially if it's a light color. This simple habit can help you avoid those unwanted yellow stains.


2) Hand washing is the best

Avoid tossing your bathing suit into the washing machine or dryer. These machines can be harsh on the fabric, especially the spandex, and can shorten its lifespan. Hand washing is the recommended method. Fill a sink with cold water and use a mild soap to gently clean your swimsuit. If you want to deep clean it, you can use our reusable washing pouch and select the delicate cycle on your washing machine.


3) Gentle soap for effective cleaning

Use a mild soap to remove residues of salt, chlorine, sand, and sunscreen. You can let your bathing suit soak for about 10 minutes in soapy water. Be sure to rinse it thoroughly with clear water to prevent any soapy stains.


4) Air-dry it flat in the shade

When it's time to dry your swimsuit, lay it flat in the shade. Avoid hanging it, as this may cause the fabric to lose its shape in the long run. This is the best way to maintain its form.


5) Sunshine – Enjoy it with moderation

Extended sun exposure can harm the fabric of your bathing suit, especially if it's a bright color. If you've noticed that your vibrant red bikini has lost its brilliance, the sun is likely the main culprit. To avoid this, consider bringing multiple swimsuits with you on your next vacation so you can alternate and wash them properly between uses.
