How to wear
putting on your clothes seems difficult, some talcum or baby powder
might help you to do so more smoothly. With pants or a catsuit or
gloves, pull up the garment slowly, don't pull them too quick as they
might tear. To get a better grip, slide your hand in between the
garment and your skin and pull it up. Jewelry and sharp nails might
damage the fabric.
Do not use any babyoil on the outside of the garment, as this might damage it.
Carefully take the clothes off. The inside and outside might be wiped
with a lukewarm cloth to remove sweat. In case the garment is dirty
washing is possible, do so by following these guidelines: handwash in
warm (not hot) water with a small amount of detergent. Use liquid rather
than soap flakes, as they might stick to the material. Make sure you
wash your garment inside and outside and rinse thoroughly in cool water.
Hang inside out to dry, but not in the sun! Do not iron them!

lighter colours. It is also advised to use a black plastic bag and
