CARE OF LATEX CLOTHING

Damage to latex clothing usually occurs when it is being put on. Allow the garment to warm up if it has been kept in a cool place. Do not be impatient. Do not tug at localised areas of rubber or it will rip. Rubber is very stretchy but eventually it will tear without warning. We recommend a light dusting of baby or un-perfumed talc, some people like to use corn flour. Seek assistance with zips if you are having difficulty. Latex is bio-degradable but it will last a long time with care. We recommend storing the clean garment hung up in a cool dark wardrobe with perhaps a black trash bag over it. Rubber will fade in strong light. After wearing wipe down with a soft dampened cloth , do not scrub. If it has got particularly disgusting wash in lukewarm water with a very small amount of washing up liquid by hand. Do not scrub or wring. Rinse well, pat dry with a lint free towel and allow to dry naturally do not use heat. Water streaks can usually be removed with a damp cloth afterwards. Dust well with talc inside and a little outside to stop it sticking. If you want a glossy finish this can be achieved with either silicone spray or liquid, or a purpose made polish for latex clothing. We do not recommend the use of household or automotive polishes. Do not rub hard - this will spoil the surface. You will not achieve that perfect wet look gloss that you see in magazines this is done with lighting and enhancing the pictures digitally. Do not spray perfume or cologne on the rubber, the alcohol contained in these products will not do the rubber any good. Light colours stain very easily when in contact with some metals, particularly those found in coonskin fact all colours will stain when in contact with nickel it just shows more on the lighter colours. It is due to the metal reacting with a chemical used in the curing process and creating a light brown stain. Dampness will greatly increase this reaction. Store any a garment which has metal trimmings carefully- use tissue paper to cover the trims. Many of our customers enjoy their garments for years, they just need a little more care than textile clothing. We are always interested in any handy tips for caring for rubber, please email.
