How does Chlorine Affect Your Swimwear?

We all know that chlorine effects swimwear. It is a major factor in the life of a swimsuit and it is important that you consider why you are buying swimwear and what the fabric content is for your swimwear.

If you didn't already know, chlorine resistant fabric is 100% polyester. This is key if you are a pool swimmer and looking for the perfect swimsuit. You will need to be cautious when you are looking at buying your next swimsuit. The hot tip is to look at the swing tag and see if the swimsuit says chlorine resistant. It is doesn't say chlorine resistant then the next tip would be to look at the material content. If it says 100% polyester then it is a chlorine resistant swimsuit.

So, how does chlorine resistant effect your swimwear? Chlorine basically eats away at your swimwear. As the chlorine is generally high, especially in public pools, it is key to take care when you decide to swim. If you finish swimming, and let the chlorine sit in your swimsuit, it will eat away at the fabric and cause colour loss or fabric quality to fade away.

Take care of your swimwear

Now, this is how you take care of your swimsuit whether it is chlorine resistant or not, this is important if you wish to prolong the life of your swimsuit in general. When you finish swimming, rinse off your swimsuit in cold tap water. You can jump in the shower with your swimsuit on and as it warms up you can rinse it off. Another huge factor is to try your swimsuit in the shade. Do not dry your swimsuit in the sun. Much like chlorine, it will just suck the life out of your swimsuit as the sun can cause major damage.

It is easy to take care of your chlorine resistant swimwear but following these simple tips, you will be able to keep your swimwear for a few seasons and never lose quality. Make sure that you pay attention to the fabric content and how chlorine can effect your swimwear. Now enjoy your swimwear shopping!
