Shapes in the Sand  Washing Instructions

Swimwear
If you prefer washing your swimsuit in the washing machine, please put on a

gentle cycle and ensure the swimsuit is washed inside a Guppyfriend Washing Bag. If you don't have a washing bag please rinse your swimsuit in a bucket. Once you are done, dispose of the water somewhere that is not down the drain. Hang out to dry in the shade.

Apparel

Our resort collection is made from LENZING™ ECOVERO™ derived from certified wood pulp. We recommend a hand wash or delicate machine wash for your resort garment. Do not tumble dry as this fabric will shrink. Line dry in shade and a gentle iron or steam is preferred. 

How can you minimise microfibre shedding?
.

Only buy clothing that has been designed with durability in mind, so that they  can not only be recycled after many years of use but to also ensure quality fabric 
construction.

Use a laundry bag that is made from a natural/untreated fabric.
Minimise the amount of times you use your washing machine and use a gentle
cycle that won't aggravate the fibres, releasing them from the garment.
Buy less! Only buy what you need. By reducing consumption, we reduce the    amount of waste. and the amount of times we need to wash. Less is more.
