We’re currently nearing the end of the summer which means that our swim trunks have seen better days. Most people don’t know that taking care of swim trunks is more than just throwing them in the wash every other week. Saltwater, swimming pools, sunshine and a sandy beach sound like the perfect summer afternoon, but these things shorten the lifespan of your swimwear. That’s why we’ve compiled a handful of helpful tips to ensure your swim trunks last for summers to come.
Swim trunks are obviously designed to be used in water, but the salt from the ocean and chemicals in the pool can seep into the fabric and damage your swim trunks. Rinsing with cold water right after wearing your swim trunks helps wash away any harmful chemicals or sand, making your swim trunks look fresh off the rack. Remember to always use a gentle detergent and avoid using dryers.
In addition to avoiding dryers, we also recommend you resist the urge to wring out every drop of water from your swim trunks. Doing this can damage the fibers, leaving your stylish suit sagging in all the wrong places. Hanging swim trunks (especially by the laces) can also stretch out your suit. Instead, lay your pair of swim trunks on a towel and gently roll it up to remove excess water. Never leave your swim trunks soaking overnight. Also when drying, make sure to always lay your swim trunks flat!
To make swim trunks last for many years try sitting on a towel to avoid tears and scratches from sitting on rough surfaces. While outside, your swim trunks are susceptible to many rough surfaces that can damage the material. Whether you’re sitting on a wooden bench, pool deck, or any other rough surface, try sitting on a towel. This will help prevent snags and tears in the material and ensure they look presentable no matter where you go.
