We take pride in having quality fabric so here are a few easy tips to keep your garments looking great! But remember, shiny, specialty fabrics will dull and fade with repeated wear and washing. Aerosol products containing alcohol, deodorant, and perspiration can wear down the fibers. Perfumes and body lotions can also affect the fabric.
How to wash specialty fabrics:
Turn garment inside out and individually hand wash in a large sink of cold water. Use a handful of table salt in the water to clean and sanitize the leotard. This will also help set the color of the fabric to avoid running or bleeding. Remove the leotard immediately, do not let it soak. Lay the leotard out on a towel and roll it up to pull out the majority of the water. Hang to dry on a thick coat hanger.
Things not to do for specialty fabrics like; mystique, metallic, hologram or leotards with rhinestones.
Turn garment inside out and machine or hand wash separately in cold water on gentle cycle. Salt water is still recommended to keep colors bright. Remove immediately, do not let it soak, and tumble dry on low heat or hang to dry.
Illusions will not guarantee any garment that is not washed or dried as directed.
How to care for your Illusions swimwear:
Be sure to purchase the size that fits you best. Loose fitting suits do not wear as well as suits that fit close to the body.
