Waist trainers are an essential part of shaping your waist. They provide support and compression at the same time. But in order to keep them as a part of your daily routine, you must keep them clean also. In this article, I will walk you through easy and quick ways to clean your waist trainer.
There are three important things you must remember about cleaning your waist trainer:
- Do not use a sponge to clean the waist trainer. Using a sponge to clean latex will result in damage to the garment. Instead of a sponge, use a soft towel.
- Do not machine wash your waist trainer. Since most waist trainers have latex in them, it is not a good idea. Machine washing latex will cause it to melt, resulting in a ruined waist trainer.
- Make sure you let the waist trainer dry completely. Water can destroy the latex if it is not dried properly.
How To Properly Clean Your Waist Trainer
To properly clean your waist trainer, you must get a bowl of hot or warm water, shampoo or soft soap and a towel. Put a smaller amount of water and a couple drops of soap on your towel, then gently rub the towel onto the latex to clean it. It is important that once you have finished cleaning the waist trainer, it is properly dried. To help the drying process, you can take a dry towel and wipe the waist trainer down. You could even take a blow dryer, on the lowest setting, and lightly blow dry the waist trainer. Whatever you do, do not fold the waist trainer up and store it before it is dry. This will cause the waist trainer to have an odd smell and not thoroughly dry.
Make sure your waist trainer does not come in contact with any other clothes while it is drying, as it may stain them. Latex can also discolor if it is in contact with sunlight for long periods of time, so be sure to store the waist trainer in a darker area. Allow your waist trainer to dry completely flat and do not wring it dry, as it can damage the structure. Do not bend your waist trainer in another position besides the one it is supposed to be in. It may result in your waist trainer not fitting properly any longer.
We all love our waist trainers, but it is crucial to keep them clean. They absorb our sweats and toxins on the daily and over time, these sweats and toxins do become smelly and unpleasant. It is also better for our skin to keep the waist trainers clean, seeing as how the cleaner the surface, the less likely it is to give you acne or oily skin. Just remember, only hand wash the waist trainers and do not toss them into the dryer. Give them time to dry properly so they will continue to be a part of your daily routine.
