When you come home from a fun day at the beach or by the pool, resist the temptation to strip off your crochet bikini and shove it into a corner of your room, you can even give it a quick wash in the shower with liquid soap and hang it outside for better drying !
Crochet Bikini Care tips
Chlorine can have a damaging effect on your swimwear so It is best to rinse your swimsuit immediately after you change, and give it a hand wash later on in the day. If you can do it straight away, that is even better, because it gives the bacteria less time to set in. Fill up your sink or a bucket with cold water, add a small amount liquid hand soap or washing powder, let your piece soak in that for fifteen minutes and then rinse it out with cold water. Never put your crochet swimwear in the dryer or washing machine! It will lose its silhouette and become old looking – definitely not a good beach look! Let your crochet bikini drip dry out naturally under the shade.
Watch Where You sit
Beach fronts and pool sides can be dangerous places. Rubbing against rough and uneven surfaces will cause the cotton and polyamide fibers to snap and the material to wear out. So always remember to pick up a sarong or a beach towel and take a moment to lay it out before you sit down.
Give Your Crochet Bikini Some Down Time
Swimwear usually takes about 24 hours to get back to its original shape, so try not to wear the same piece on consecutive days. Alternate between suits to allow them to breathe and return to their normal condition.
