This is a simple guide to help you care for your latex garments from Love Penny Plane.
All items are sent matt and covered in talcum powder. This is to prevent the garment from sticking to itself as it is folded for post.
You can choose to wear your latex like this, but for the shiny effect you will need to use our silicone based Premium Shiner. Before applying, it is advised to wash the garment as described below.
When you put on your new garment for the first time, it will be lightly talced on the inside which will reduce friction. If you need to you can use more talc or you can use our latex dressing aid which will help you slide into the garment with ease.
Beware of wearing latex with long nails as you can tear the rubber. Also be weary of metallic jewellery on rubber as it an stain and discolour latex.
To wash your garment, you can use a little washing up liquid in warm water and gently wipe away any stains with your hands, as you would a regular delicate handwash item and rinse with warm water t remove any excess soap. Hang your garment to drip dry and then talc the inside and polish the outside.... Polishing the outside keeps the rubber moisturised and prolongs the life of your garment.
Latex is not heat friendly and discolours in sunlight. Store your latex in a dark and cool place, preferably hanging to avoid creasing.
