Ice, snow and freezing temperatures have left many throughout the country looking to get away to warmer locales.
For some, an ideal wintertime vacation includes sun, sand and swimming. Whether you choose to escape to Mexico, Puerto Rico, Aruba or another tropical destination, odds are you'll be spending a lot of time in a bathing suit.
Experts say it's important to take extra care when washing swimsuits, as they can become damaged in a washing machine or clothes dryer.
According to Real Simple magazine, bathing suits should be rinsed after each use to extend their life.
In addition, these items should be hand-washed in a sink with cold water and a special lingerie or bathing suit detergent.
HowToCleanStuff.net says, "NEVER dry your bathing suit in a dryer as the heat and mechanics of the dryer will break down the elastic and other material on the bathing suit."
In addition to helping clothes last longer and avoid shrinkage, using a drying rack helps save energy and leaves laundry with a fresh scent that machine dryers can't compare with.
Brabantia drying racks are available in different sizes and styles for any of your laundry needs. They are built to last with corrosion-resistant materials and can be used indoors or outdoors.
