Wetsuit care tips

Taking good care of your wetsuit will make your wetsuit last longer. Regular care will extend the life of your wetsuit and save you money. Take good care of your wetsuit and it will keep you warm and in the water longer all year. Here are some wetsuit care tips.

Dont expose your wetsuit to rough ground abrasion from the ground, sand and dirt will abrade the wetsuit fabric wearing down the nylon layer of your wetsuit. This can result in weakpoints which in turn can lead to holes, rips or tears over time. Changing on a wetsuit mat can significantly extend the lifetime of your wetsuit.

Heat-the enemy of wetsuit fabric The wetsuit material will break down if you rinse your wetsuit in hot water. Always use cold or warm water. Don’t leave your wetsuit in the sun! The UV rays will deteriorate the wetsuit fabric really fast. Dry your wetsuit in the shade if possible. Don’t leave your wetsuit in your car or trunk of your car for an extended time on a hot day. Soft-boiled wetsuit? Not good.

Dry your wetsuit inside out first  Don’t leave your wetsuit wet and dirty. Rinse it with fresh water and hang it to dry on a SlideHanger. Don’t use a shoulder hanger. Dry your wetsuit inside out first. You should always, carefully peel your wetsuit off inside- out anyway. Once the inside is dry, turn the wetsuit right side out to finish drying. Store your wetsuit on the SlideHanger™ to reduce fabric stress. Don’t store your wetsuit on a shoulder hanger.

Rinse your Wetsuit in Fresh Water after each use. And don’t ever wash your wetsuit in the washing machine! Or, dry it in the dryer! Or, use bleach, clothes washing detergent, stain remover, fabric softener, olive oil, jet fuel etc. And, don’t iron your wetsuit either! We didn’t really have to say that right? Use hypoallergenic biodegradable Slosh soap - which is made especially for washing and freshening your wetsuit and also keeps it soft and supple. And remember, always wash your wetsuit by hand in fresh water!

Does your wetsuit smell? If your wetsuit starts getting smelly, wash away wetsuit funk by putting your wetsuit in a tub of fresh water (not hot). Add some Slosh wetsuit shampoo and gently wash it by hand. Rinse your wetsuit, and then dry it on a SlideHanger™ in the fresh air.
