Please find below few notes and indications which can be useful for the use of garments and their maintenance. Remember that – like every kind of clothing – swimsuits are not made to last forever. However, by following a few simple but essential guidelines, you can extend your garment’s lifespan.
Never use creams, embrocating liquids and products for warming up (winter) or sun cream (summer) under the garments made with elastic fibers. These products contain chemicals which lead to quick fiber deterioration for all fabrics made with spandex.
After each ride, hang the garments in a well-ventilated environment or wash them immediately. Do not hang the garments in the direct sunlight. Never store damp clothes in a non-ventilated environment (e.g. plastic bags, sport bag, suitcase, etc.).
If your body has a tendency to sweat a lot, water-rinse the garments after each use to protect the fibers from bacterial attacks which might lead to fabric deterioration.
Washing a garment means putting stress on fabric and seams. Therefore, wash garments separately from other clothes/accessories to prevent friction. Before washing, turn the garments inside out (seams on the outside).
Machine-wash is possible but always use a wash bag, a delicate cycle and lukewarm water (max. 30° C). Do not use bleachers and/or softeners. Use a mild liquid detergent only. Do not soak, wring or rub. Do not spin after washing. To remove excess water from your garment gently squeezes by hand. Dry garments flat or hanging, but do not tumble dry.
Fabric piling does not occur by itself. It always is the result of abrasion. For this reason we suggest you to avoid touching the swimsuit with a rough surface that could damage the garment. Unfortunately such problem is never a manufacturing defect but it is the result of the above described reason.
