How to Care for your Swimwear
There is no denying Liandra Swim is a staple in your wardrobe, but it's also one of the most delicate items you own. Swimsuits in general are made from delicate materials and often have intricate details, that require special care to maintain their shape and quality. In this post we'll go over how to wash your Liandra Swim so that it stays looking brand new for years to come!
How often should I wash my swimwear?
Washing your swimwear is the best way to care for it. There are a few rules to follow when swimming in chlorinated water versus saltwater:
If you wear your swimwear in chlorinated water, it should be washed every two wears.
If you wear your swimwear in salt water, then it should be washed every five wears.
If you wear both chlorinated and salt water, then wash it after every two wears.
We also recommend finding yourself a Guppy Friend to put your Liandra Swim in so you can further protect your swimwear and capture any microplastics that reduces the amount of microfibres that enter waterways through your laundry washes. A Guppy Friend also works to protect and extend the lifetime of and and all your synthetic garments.
It's important to know how to properly care for your Liandra Swim. When using a beach towel, make sure that it is clean and dry before using it on your body. To prevent sand from getting into your swimwear, use a toothbrush or comb to remove any loose pieces of sand before hanging your swimwear out to dry. After taking off the bathing suit, you can use a hair dryer (on the lowest heat setting) to remove excess moisture from inside of the bathing suit as this can cause mildew buildup over time which may cause odours when worn again later down the road!
Washing & drying your bikini
Washing your swimsuit should always be done in in cold or warm water - never use hot!
Give your swimsuit some TLC by using a mild detergent and warm water. Don’t use fabric softener or bleach on your bikini, as these additives can cause damage to the elasticity of the fabric.
Hang dry your swimwear.
Avoid the dryer at all costs, as it will make your bikini stretch out and lose its shape.
Don't iron your swimwear.
Don't use bleach to wash your Liandra Swim. Bleach can discolour some fabrics and even cause holes in them, over time, if you aren't careful with how much you use! It's best to just steer clear of this chemical altogether when it comes time for washing clothes so you don't accidentally ruin something that's supposed to be fun and easy (like wearing a bikini).
Don't use fabric softener on your swimsuit—it can leave residue behind which could make the material feel less smooth against skin than normal (which isn’t ideal for something like a bathing suit). Also consider avoiding laundry detergent with scents or perfumes unless it specifically says “hypoallergenic” because these additives can also irritate sensitive skin types like yours!
Taking care of your swimwear will ensure you get the most out of it.
