How to keep your treasures whole and clean


Washing instructions

After every surf session, you should thoroughly rinse out your bikini with cold water. Wring it out carefully, and hang the bikini in the shade to dry. The sun might damage the material – colors might fade and the fibers might not stand the UV rays.

While wearing the bikini, be careful with suntan lotion or sunscreen.

Every now and again you can wash your bikini at 30 degrees Celsius in the washer. Do you have trouble with surf wax stains? Our tip: put the bikini in the dryer for a little while. But be aware: tumble-drying can reduce the longevity of the material. We cannot be held responsible for any damage.

Rinse – wring – hang



Take a first look at the label for detailed instructions. Generally, we recommend washing your cotton or cotton-mix clothes at 30 degrees Celsius with similar colors – only tumble-dry if necessary. You should hang them outside in the shade to dry.


Clothes made of these materials can be washed at 30 degrees Celsius in the washer. Please do not wash your clothes at a higher temperature. You’ll risk shrinkage. For the same reason, do not use the tumble-dryer.

The fibers are very sensitive and should not be washed with garments that have rough parts like zippers or similar accessories. Always be careful. Tip: use a mesh laundry bag!

Same rules apply here:

Do not bleach - do not iron - hang your clothes in the shade to dry!
