How do I care for my swim tee?

Treat your swim tee (and all of your bathing suits) with care. After wearing, rinse your swim tee in cold water to remove things like sand, salt and chlorine. Always wash it by hand in cold water with baby shampoo or a gentle detergent; avoid stretching it out of shape as well, which may limit its ability to protect you from the sun.
