Caring for and getting the most out of your rubber products
Getting the most out of your rubber wear.
It’s normal for your rubber wear to arrive looking dull, to achieve a deep shine and prolong the life of your rubber wear we recommend that you follow the advice below. Apply talcum powder or one of the available dressing aids available from the site on the inside of your garment or directly to your skin before attempting to put it on. Vividress or Pjur dressing aid is perfect to assist you into your latex garment. Wipe off any excess talc on the outside of the garment with a clean damp cloth, rinse cloth and repeat process until all the talcum powder has been removed. If using Vividress or Pjur rub any excess over the garment, either using your hands or buff up with a soft damp cloth or sponge. To make your rubber shine we recommend the use of Vivishine or Pjur Ultra Spray all are available from our website. After wearing your garment, we recommend you rinse it using warm water and a little detergent, we also stock, Viviclean a special detergent which is ideal for sanitising your rubber wear. Always allow your garment to completely dry before storing away. To avoid fading and bleaching, store your garments away from heat and direct sunlight. Never use oil-based products, as they will destroy the latex.
Semi trans latex and light-coloured latex are susceptible to marking from metal objects, even the press studs from a cod piece. To avoid this always store your latex products separately never fold directly on to the studs. Always re-attach your cod piece to your suit otherwise the metal will re-act to the rubber if it is folded and comes in to contact with itself thus leaving marks. By storing correctly, covering correctly your latex will survive for many years and give you years of pleasure.
