Just out of Curiosity… Should you Dry Clean your Bathing suit?

The answer is no.

Swimsuits are designed for wear in Water, and that’s what cleans them best! Some women spend a lot of money on their bathing suits and it has special embellishments or finer fabrics. They think that bringing it to us here at DeLuxe Dry Cleaners New Orleans will help it last longer, but in actuality it doesn’t. It’s best to wash your bathing suit at home by hand in cool water or in your washing machine on a low setting. Then hang it, and leave it to air dry.

Tumble drying your suit on low is not a good idea, as it will only lead to damaging the suit faster. The chemicals used in Dry Cleaning are too harsh for the synthetic fibers used in most bathing suits and can cause irreparable damage to a suit. Ironing and bleaching are also major ‘no no’s’ when it comes to your swim wear!

Also, don’t forget that if Salt water if it is not rinsed out right after you use your bathing suit, it can also quickly cause damage. So please remember, it’s very important to clean your suits with fresh water after going into the ocean!
