Tips to make your tail, monofin & swimwear last longer

.

Please note that salt water and chlorine contents can “dry out” the mermaid tail / Swimwear / Monofin Neoprene cover which might lead to a loss in its flexibility. Therefore, it is highly suggested that you thoroughly soak in a tub of cold fresh water and rinse the neoprene cover.
Avoid machine washing or drying of mermaid tail / monofin / swimwear, otherwise, you might end up causing damage to them. Instead, hand wash in cold water and mild soap.
It is advisable to soak your mermaid tail / monofin / swimwear in a tub of cold fresh water (for at least 10-15 minutes).
Don’t leave your mermaid tail / monofin / swimwear out in direct sunlight when you aren’t using it. It will lead to the fading of the colour of the fabric.
Don’t store your mermaid tail / monofin / swimwear by leaving it folded, else it might develop a permanent crease.
Do not store it in a garage or close vicinity of a vehicle as exhaust emissions from the vehicle are prone to deteriorate the neoprene.
Hopping while wearing the mermaid tail / monofin may cause danger and may damage the tail.
Whenever you sit on the ground, wooden bench or any rough surface, try to keep a towel underneath.
Be careful while applying sunscreen lotions or tanning oils as they may mark or damage your tail / monofin / swimwear.
Try not to expose your tail / monofin / swimwear to hot water or excessive chlorine as they might be hard on your fabric.
While washing your tail / monofin / swimwear, flip it inside out for extra care.
Avoid plastic bags for storing your tail / monofin / swimwear.
Any improper use of this product may result in serious injury and fatalities.
Handle your monofin with care while removing it.
Never dry your monofin cover in a dryer.

Fabric proper care

.

Rinse with cold water after each use.
Do not wring or twist.
Avoid rubbing and/or hitting the tail or fin on any rough surface.
Do not dry clean.
Do not wear your tail / monofin in spa baths.
Do not soak overnight. This can loosen the fibers.
Machine wash on gentle cycle, 30°c.
Use a mild detergent.
Avoid using hot water and bleach.
Avoid tumble drying as the heat may cause damage to the fabric.
Do not iron.
Dry in shade.

.

Make sure the fabrics are completely dry before storing to avoid damaging the material and causing mildew

.

Avoid Chemicals or Solvents

• Avoid any contact with oil, gasoline, aerosols, or chemical solvents.
• Do not expose any part to aerosol spray, as some aerosol propellants attack or degrade rubber and plastic materials.
• Do not use any type of alcohol, solvent or petroleum based substances to clean or lubricate any part.
• Do not store your equipment near any oil, gasoline, chemicals, or solvents.

What is considered normal wear and tear?

• Whether your tail is made from, neoprene, spandex, polyster, latex or silicon it will eventually sustain a certain amount of damage given the nature of how these products are used.
• Strong Chlorine eats away at everything when given enough time as does salt water. So general fading may likely occur.
• Pilling is also common since a lot of mermaids will stand in their tails or on their knees and rub against parts of the pool.
• Stretching will occur with time, especially if you aren’t gentle with your tail when inserting the monofin, putting on your tail or hanging it to dry.
