Your wetsuit is likely to be your most expensive piece of triathlon kit after your bike, but do you know how to care for it properly? Heather explains how to wash, dry and store your wetsuit to prolong its life! Subscribe to GTN: Check out the GTN Shop: Your wetsuit is an expensive piece of kit so you want to make it last as long as possible. There are several things you can do to prolong the life of your neoprene suit: Wash your wetsuit - rinse with lukewarm water and remove any dirt when the wetsuit is still wet (this makes it much easier). You should also rinse your wetsuit after swimming in a pool as chlorine isn't good for your suit. After this let your wetsuit dry naturally out of sunlight and away from too much heat such as a radiator. Store your wetsuit - store your wetsuit in a dry place. Either hang your wetsuit over a hanger with a straight bar or fold it as shown by Heather and this will prevent too many creases forming and will ensure your wetsuit is in good condition when you go it it next summer!
