Latex is among the most popular fetish wear, but not many people realize how much work goes into keeping it shiny and long wearing. The natural fiber is prone to decay and degradation, not counting the tear and wear that is definitely bound to occur. To start off, the safety precautions regarding latex care are as follows;
Putting on latex can be a bit of a hassle. But the availability of latex dressing aid makes the whole process a bit easier. If you do not have the latex dressing aid, a water based lubricant or a silicone based lubricant will do the trick.
Just apply some lube on the inside of the latex and on your skin and using the whole hand instead of just the fingertips, pull on the garment. You can always use a powder product for the face and neck region.
Body odor, dirt and sweat have to be cleaned from the latex garment to avoid degradation over time. With latex being highly susceptible to sweat, always ensure that you wash the outfit after every session. Just dilute a specially designed formula into a tub of water and dip your garment in it, then gently wipe the inside and the outside of the garment thoroughly with a soft cloth.
Once you have cleaned the garment, rinse it out with lots of warm water. If you do not have a specially designed cleaner, you can use a mild soap, a mild shampoo or baby shampoo. Pat the garment dry both inside and out and then airdry preferably at room temperature on a plastic hanger. Metal hangers should be avoided as they are like to stain the clothing.
Before storage, apply talcum powder to separate any latex that is stuck together and also to prevent the latex from sticking together while in storage.
Latex normally has a matte appearance, and a bit of sprucing up is needed to get it shining. Always ensure that you use polish designed for latex care. Household polish may contain ingredients that end up damaging the fabric in the long run. Wipe off any residue powder from the garment and using a soft microfiber cloth, apply the polish evenly all over the garment then buff to a shine.
If you are using a spray product, spray directly onto the garment sparingly and make sure the garment is coated evenly. After this, let the polish soak in and then buff the garment to a shine using a soft cloth.
