Why athletes should wash their Wetsuit

We were delighted to be part of the triathlon Westcoast Warmwater Weekend where we washed over 300 Wetsuits in FungiSolve.
Why athletes don’t wash their wetsuits. 
Most athletes don’t consider washing their wetsuits, they usually rinse them in fresh water after a swim in the sea to get rid of salt and sand.
  • Is this really enough to keep it clean?
  • What happens if your wetsuits starts to smell?
  • What happens if you get a fungal infection such as Candida or Jock Itch?
Why did we want to show these athletes the importance of washing their wetsuits?
FungiSolve is a laundry detergent that decontaminates in one wash, getting rid of bacteria that cause fungal infections. The bad odour in your wetsuit is from a micro-organism that can’t be washed out in hot water and lives in fibres and fabrics. FungiSolve will get rid of the bad odour instantly!
Taking good care of your wetsuit will also make it last longer! FungiSolve is as gentle on fabrics as distilled water!
