Wear & Care Guide
Care instructions are important, yet often over-looked. Clothing longevity is not only determined by the quality and how well it's been made, but also how it's looked after. Here is how to take proper care of your swimsuit, so you can enjoy it for longer.
We generally encourage you to wash your batoko swimsuit less. Not only will this prolong the life of your swimsuit, but it's also better for the environment. Ensure that you always rinse your swimsuit with clean water after every use to remove any salt or chlorine and to stop the spread of invasive plant species and algae if you're swimming in ponds and lakes.
Simply lay your swimsuit flat on a drying rack or flat surface and leave it to dry. This can be outside or inside, but preferably in a warm and dry environment. If you need it to dry super fast, lay it out under the sun for 10 minutes. Don't worry, the colours won't fade.
As a conscious choice with the environment in mind, our swimwear has not been treated with chlorine-resistant coating or chemicals. Polyester is a hardy fabric that is generally very resistant to chlorine if cared for correctly. If you swim regularly in chlorinated pools, we advise alternating between different swimsuits to give each one a break, as well as with following the care instructions detailed below.
