Swimwear Care Tips: Making Your Eco-Friendly Swimsuit Last

Caring for your eco-friendly swimsuit is essential to keep it looking vibrant and supportive season after season. Here are some practical tips to help prolong the lifespan of your Cygne Noir swimwear.

  1. Rinse Immediately After Use

After swimming, rinse your swimsuit thoroughly with cold, fresh water. Chlorine, salt, and other pool chemicals can deteriorate the fabric over time. Rinsing helps to remove these substances and prevents them from causing damage.

  1. Hand Wash with Mild Detergent

Hand washing is the gentlest method for cleaning swimwear. Use a mild detergent or a specialized swimsuit cleaner. Avoid using regular laundry detergent, as it can be too harsh and degrade the fabric. Gently agitate the swimsuit in lukewarm water, ensuring all areas are clean.

  1. Avoid Wringing Out Your Swimsuit

After washing, do not wring out your swimsuit to remove excess water. This can stretch and damage the fabric. Instead, gently press the swimsuit between two clean towels to absorb the water.

  1. Dry Flat and Out of Direct Sunlight

Lay your swimsuit flat on a clean, dry towel to air dry. Avoid hanging it by the straps, as this can cause them to stretch out. Keep your swimsuit out of direct sunlight, as prolonged exposure to the sun can fade colors and weaken the fabric.

  1. Rotate Between Swimsuits

If you swim frequently, it's a good idea to rotate between different swimsuits. This gives each one a chance to fully dry and recover its shape, reducing the overall wear and tear on any single piece.

  1. Store Properly

Store your swimsuit flat in a cool, dry place. Avoid folding it in ways that create deep creases. If you must pack it, roll it gently instead of folding. Ensure it's completely dry before storing to prevent mold and mildew growth.

  1. Avoid Contact with Rough Surfaces

Be mindful of rough pool edges, decks, and other abrasive surfaces that can snag and damage the fabric. Sitting on a towel or a smooth surface helps to protect your swimsuit.

  1. Limit Hot Tub Use

Hot tubs contain high levels of chlorine and other chemicals, which can be harsh on swimwear. If possible, avoid wearing your favorite swimsuit in a hot tub. If you do, rinse it immediately afterward.

  1. Avoid Harsh Chemicals

Products like sunscreen, tanning oils, and body lotions can cause damage and discoloration to your swimsuit. Apply these products and allow them to fully absorb before putting on your swimwear.

By following these care tips, you can ensure that your Cygne Noir swimsuits remain vibrant and supportive, providing you with long-lasting wear and comfort. Eco-friendly swimwear requires a bit of extra care, but with these simple steps, you can enjoy your favorite pieces for many seasons.
