Swimwear Care Advice

Care advice for your Violet Lake items:

We make our designer swimwear from Italy’s finest Jersey Lomilena, which is both durable, soft and should last you several years.  However there are some things you can do to keep your Violet Lake items looking their best for even longer.

 

Rinse well after use and in the case of white or paler coloured items you might want to soak in some washing detergent after use if you feel the items have come into contact with a lot of sunscreen products. On darker items you might see 'bleached out' marks on the item if they have come into contact with sunscreen, however these come out with a machine wash at 40 degrees without fabric conditioner.

 

We have found that our white and navy and white stripe products may become yellow with prolonged use with certain sun care products without a proper machine wash in between uses. This can be rectified in most cases by use of a biological detergent or something like Vanish with your wash. We do recommend that you don't let the stain get ingrained in the items. This can happen if the items are not washed out properly after use or left rolled up or stored anywhere airless for any length of time. The problem can then be made worse by the chemicals in swimming pools or jacuzzis.
