As fun as it is to wear PVC, Leatherette and Latex, as important it is to take proper care of them. Here are a few tips;

How to wear

When 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.

After use

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!

To enhance the shininess of your garment rub the garment with a soft cloth.We feature a special Rubber Rejuvenator liquid that can enhance the colour of your Latex and maintain the rubber. For our PVC collection we offer a special PVC Polish that will bring out the shininess even more.

Storage and keeping

After cleaning and drying, store the clothes, preferrably on a hanger, in a dark, cool closet. Not in a hot room as this might damage the clothes. Especially in the tropics, the hot temperatures tend to damage the pvc or leatherette as metal zips or buttons get hot and can create a ‘melting' effect. Do not hang light coloured (such as red) garments next to black colours, as the black garments can leave stains on the lighter colours. It is also advised to use a black plastic bag and cover them to avoid sunlight.

In case the garment has become damaged somehow, it is important to have it repaired by a professional tailor. Someone specialized in PVC, Leatherette or Latex materials. Properly cared for your PVC, Leatherette and Latex clothing should maintain its shape and quality for years.
