Swimwear actually always contains the fabric lycra. This material is elastic and ensures a perfect fit. Unfortunately, Lycra is also very sensitive to sun, chlorine, seawater and sweat. During the summer and holiday periods, your swimwear has to endure quite a bit.

Here are some tips to keep your beloved beachwear in top condition.

Immediately after swimming: Be careful

Do not wring the swimwear out too hard, as this can damage the fine lycra threads. Rather, gently squeeze out the moisture and then pat it dry with a towel. Try to wash your swimwear as soon as possible after each use. And if you like the Second Nature Laundrysheets half a sheet is sufficient if you do not have a full machine.
