Easy Swimwear Care

Sometimes, you just need a day at the beach (or lounging poolside). But sun, sea salt, and chlorine can wreak havoc on your swimwear if not properly cared for.

Keep your bathing suit looking its best with Eucalan.

The good news is that it’s quite easy to keep your bathing suit in tip-top condition: after every use, wash in your favourite scent of Eucalan. We show you how in this easy tutorial:

As you can see, it takes only a few minutes to remove the oils, chlorine and lotions which can break down the fibres of your swim suit and fade the colours over time. You can even wash your suit in your hotel sink while traveling with our single use pods! We recommend our LavenderGrapefruit or Jasmine scents for their naturally antiseptic properties.

Single Use Pods of Eucalan are great for travel.

Eucalan brings to mind a “spa-like” atmosphere. The natural formula, free from dyes, optical brighteners, enzymes, bleach and synthetic fragrances, shows well in the natural bottle. The bottle itself is see-through, showing  that we are transparent: there’s nothing to hide. Most people feel refreshed when they use Eucalan, which can be attributed to the light, natural essential oil fragrances which scent the air and your delicate garments as well as the fact that laundering with Eucalan couldn’t possibly be any easier.

Active wear lasts longer when properly cared for; visit the Eucalan blog for easy to follow instructions.

Giving lingerie, swimwear and active wear a quick wash in the basin is not a laborious task. A quick dip and squeeze is all it takes (click here to view our complete care instructions over on our website). Because Eucalan is free from all the harsh stuff other cleaners have, there’s no need to rinse the product out – in fact, our lanolin-enriched formula will condition and soften your luxe and specialty fibres. Better yet, our gentle, natural formula won’t dull colours or break down the elastic. In fact, your stretchy garments need that quick bath to remove body oils, perfumes and lotions so they can go back to their original shape, which will help them to last longer.

We have four great scents, plus a natural fragrance-free option. For the ultimate spa experience, we recommend our Lavender and Jasmine scents. Click each image below to learn more on our website!

Bathing Suit Do’s &Don’ts

swimwear2014You’ve followed this year’s trends and found the perfect swimsuit for Summer 2014 – that’s already a “do”! Now you just have to keep it looking great all season long by avoiding these don’ts:

  • Even if your swimsuit is white, don’t use bleach! Bleach is a sure-fire way to damage fibres and reduce the life of your suit.
  • Don’t machine-wash your swimsuit! This causes pilling and also breaks down fibres.
  • After each use, don’t forget to wash your suit in a mild detergent such as Eucalan to remove sweat, salt, chlorine, sunblock, bacteria and sand.
  • Don’t stretch out your suit by using a clothes dryer or hanging it up to dry! It’s best to use a towel to squeeze out the remaining water, then lay flat to dry out of direct sunlight.
  • Don’t use the same suit every day. Your swim suit will need 24 hours to regain shape, and it’s best to wait until it’s 100% dry before using it again.

No need to be intimidated by the above list – caring for swimwear is easy with Eucalan, we promise! In the short tutorial video below, Eucalan‘s managing director Jennifer Edgar shares easy-to-follow tips to keep your swimwear, workout gear and other technical fibres looking their best:
