When it comes to swimsuits and your hot tub, here are a few basic things to consider.
– Have a swimsuit just for your hot tub. Suits you wear to the lake or ocean may have extra minerals or biological agents that you don’t want to bring into your hot tub water. They may also accumulate lotion or sunscreen, which will also compromise the quality of water in hot tubs.
– Hot tub chemicals can be tough on a suit over time. Choose a suit that’s made with durable fabrics, such as nylon.
– Make sure your suit is thoroughly rinsed before you use it. Ask your friends to rinse their bathing suit as well before they take a dip in your spa.
– After you use your hot tub, hand rinse your suit and hang it up to dry. It doesn’t need to go through the washer and dryer – the sanitizing agents in your hot tub that keep your water fresh and clean will do the same for your suit.
