Here are some basic steps that should help you care for, and get the best out of your new rubber garments:|
When putting rubber on, liberally apply talc or a silicon based lubricant to the inside of the garment, this will prevent the rubber from gripping your skin. Applying a small amount of Pjur Cult Dressing Aid (A1007) will help you slide into your rubber clothing with ease and will not harm your rubber clothing. Carefully pull on the garment taking care not to pierce the rubber with sharp jewellery or long nails.
Polish your rubber garment with a lint free cloth, chamois leather or something similar using liquid silicone (HA09A). This will condition the rubber and keep it looking shiny. For a speedy, high gloss finish you can use silicone spray (HA09), which is easy and dramatic.
After wearing your rubber garment it can be hand washed in luke warm soapy water, avoid using detergents or abrasive cleaning fluids/powders, a little household washing up liquid or soap will be fine. Rinse repeatedly until all soap has gone, then hang to dry, a shower or above a bath is perfect for this.
Do not try to speed up the drying procedure in the microwave or on a radiator or with a hair dryer or any other similar heating appliance, this will damage your rubber garments. When completely dry, thoroughly talc the inside of the garment and then hang on a cushioned hanger and store.
Store rubber clothing away from heat, direct sunlight, UV light, salt water, chlorine, and 'waxed' clothing. Heat and strong light will make the rubber discoloured and dull, and can cause seams to weaken. Ideally, cover the garment in dark plastic (a bin bag is perfect) and hang in a cool dark place. Do not store under anything heavy.
Regularly polishing keeps your garments conditioned, supple and ready to wear. Properly cared for as above, your rubber clothing should maintain its shape, quality, and allure for years. We cannot be responsible for damage to your rubber if these instructions are not followed.
