After repeated exposure to sunlight and chlorine your suit will begin to fade naturally over time. This is not considered a SLO Swim or manufacturer's defect. But, if you use these tips while caring for your suit you will get the most out of your investment. Enjoy.
After each wearing, rinse in cool water and lay flat to dry
Hand wash in mild soap (or shampoo)
DO NOT spot clean or put in the dryer
Remember that suntan oil will damage fabric and elastic and use it sparingly
Exposure to hot tubs and/or heavily chlorinated pools (like public pools) will cause permeated fading in your suit. To avoid this, as well as general fading, we reccomend setting the color on your suit BEFORE you wear it the first time.
TO SET THE COLOR mix 1/2 cup of white vinegar to a 1/4 filled sink of cool water. Soak the suit in the mix for 10 minutes, then ring it out and lay flat to dry. You're good to go!
