Bathing Suit Care

I have had the same bathing suit for over 10 years -- a solid black one piece. I'm not quite sure what that says about me. But if I'm to be completely honest, I have purchased others over the years. After one or two wearings of the new one, I decide I don't like it, and I go back to the old one. As much as I've worn it, it still looks great. That's because I started taking good care of it from day one.

I share this because it is a perfect example of how properly caring for your garments causes them to last longer. A bathing suit is no exception, and here are some tips from the National Cleaners Association:

  • Always be sure to follow the care label, but typical care suggests hand washing after every wearing using a gentle soap. Chlorine in pool water and salt in the ocean will degenerate the fibers and fade the colors if not promptly removed. Plus suntan oils and sun blockers may cause stains or discolorations if they come in contact with your suit.
  • Most bathing suits contain some amount of spandex, which abrades and snaps easily. Take care not to sit on rough surfaces.

And that's it. I will continue to take good care of my bathing suit. Perhaps if I keep it long enough, the definition of vintage will include 1999.
