Vinyl (also known as PVC)
Precautions. Vinyl contains polyvinyl chloride a toxic element that is considered as carcinogen so we’d advice you to be careful with vinyl garments.
Keep away from open flames as it melts. Be aware that printed designs can rub off with time.
Washing. Hand wash in warm water with liquid detergent as flaked one can stick to vinyl, rinse thouroughly both sides of the garment in cool water. Hang dry, when the inside dries out, flip over and let PVC side dry out too.
Polishing. If needed polish with silicone spray. Contrary to latex PVC doesn’t get degraded by silicone. For squeak-free wear use a light layer of silicon-based lube on the vinyl surface of your vinyl garment.
Precautions. Oils, greases and solvents destroy latex so keep away your latex garments away from oils, hand creams and leather goods as leather too contains oils. Sharp objects, jewelry or long fingernails can damage your latex garment.
Also avoid contact with copper, brass, or bronze as when the colored latex contacts these it stains brown. Do not touch your latex garment if you held copper pennies. Latex is flammable so be careful around candles, cigarettes and other open fire. Avoid long exposure to the sun, heat and humidity as they can discolor and destroy latex.
Polish. Spray special polish on the garment and gently rub with a soft cloth to achieve clear shine.
Washing. Wash in warm water with few drops of baby shampoo or antibacterial soap. Let it hang dr. Do NOT: iron, dry-clean, or throw your latex lingerie into washing machine or dryer.
Storage. It is always a good idea to dust your latex garments after washing with talcum powder or cornstarch to absord any moisture. Store in dark cool places in a plastic bag or a box.
