Your Suit.

It’s what makes your hard work, confidence, and beauty really shine on stage,. It’s one of your most prized possession as a competitor (besides your body) and should be handled carefully when you finally clean the suit glue and layers of spray tan off of it. The fabric could be discolored or stretched if you don’t clean it properly.

What you need:

  • sink

  • cold water

  • gentle laundry detergent 

  • toothbrush

Step 1: Start by filling your sink with cold water.  Add a generous amount of detergent and gently slosh your suit around in the water.  Dyes or fragrances could definitely ruin the fabric or strip the glue that holds the gems in place so ensure that you are using an all natural organic laundry detergent.

Step 2Flip your suit inside out and gently pour some detergent right onto the heavily soiled areas. Use a toothbrush to softly rub the area until the glue and tan breaks down. Be gentle and patient. It will come off!

Step 3Once you get all of the leftover suit glue and tan off, empty the sink and continue to slosh and rinse your suit in cold water.  You will probably have to repeat this 4-6 times, or until the water is no longer “soapy.”  Gently lay your suit on a towel and allow the water to drip out for about an hour.  You can then drape your suit over a hanger to finish air-drying. Once your suit it dry, place it in a safe place away from pets and children.
