Aquamate Swimsuit Cleaner removes chlorine out of your suit to keep it looking new, longer. Mix with water and hand-wash suit with the cleaner. Comes in two sizes, 4oz or 8oz.
Swimwear can be a pretty significant investment, whether it’s a new training suit or high-performance tech suit. Getting the most out of your new suit will come down to how well it is taken care of.
The brands that we partner with put a lot of resources into developing their fabrics to be as chlorine resistant as possible, but chlorine is a harsh chemical that can deteriorate even the most durable fabrics over time.

To get the most life out of your new suit, we have a few recommendations that you can follow!
Removing the Chlorine
The first step we recommend is removing the chlorine from your suit. For this we recommend hand washing using a swimsuit cleaner [hyperlink].
Regular laundry detergents can speed up the deterioration of the fabric, colours, and elastic in suits – TAS recommends avoiding putting your swimsuit in the wash at home.
Swimsuit cleaners are specially designed to remove chlorine and salts from the fabric while still being gentle enough to not cause damage to the suit. These cleaners will keep your suit lasting a long time and keep the colours nice and vibrant.
Best practice would be to handwash the suit with swimsuit cleaner after each use. Our Aquamate Swimsuit Cleaner is sold as a concentrate, only requires one cap full of cleaner per wash! One bottle can last over 50 washes!
Drying Your Suit
Crumpling up your soaking wet bathing suit and throwing it in the bottom of your swim bag can be super convenient, and let’s be honest, we’ve all done it more times than we’d like to admit. But unsurprisingly, that’s not the best way to care for your suit!
After handwashing your suit, we recommend laying your suit flat to dry out of direct sunlight.
Hanging your suit is OK, but can stretch the suit out and wear out the elastic in both the fabric and waistband or straps so best to lay flat.
Never put your swimsuit in the dryer.
Follow these simple steps and you will see a noticeable improvement in the lifespan of your suit!
