Latex clothing might be fun to wear, but it requires a little bit of extra care and attention to keep it looking its best. Latex is prone to breaking down and tearing if it is stored incorrectly or if it comes into contact with certain materials.
Latex needs to be washed carefully after each wear because it typically makes you sweat more than usual. You also need to dry it completely so it doesn’t stick together as it dries.

When you’re ready to take your latex clothing off, do so carefully. You need to avoid letting the clothing roll up, as this can lead to it sticking together. If you have long nails, be careful you don’t poke through the latex while you are removing it.
After you have taken off your clothing, make sure you pop on a robe or similar as you will have a thin layer of sweat on your body. This can leave you feeling cold very quickly if you complete this next step while still naked.
Gently rinse your latex clothing in warm, soapy water. Don’t allow the latex to come into contact with things like metal taps as this can quickly lead the fabric to break down.
Once free from all soap, place your latex clothing on a clean towel.
After you have washed the clothing, you need to prepare it for storage. Latex isn’t something that you can just pop in a drawer or slip on a normal hanger. You need to protect it from moisture and sunlight.
Make sure the latex is fully dried and then dust it with a sprinkle of talcum powder. This will help to prevent the latex sticking together and being impossible to wear again.
Finally, you can wrap your latex clothing in tissue paper and store it in a drawer, away from sunlight.
When the time comes to wear your latex again, you can give it a fresh sprinkle of talcum powder to make it easier to slip it on. Once you are wearing it, you can then wipe it with a shining liquid or oil-based lube to give it back its shine.
