Wetsuits Care and Maintenance?

Post Number:#1  Postby nazimkecik » Fri Apr 27, 2007 2:06 am

With the amount of ammonia being accumulated on the wetsuits :) How do you mantain and care for your wetsuits? can we use normal detergent? or is there a specific wetsuits cleaning solution that is available in the market. Came across such a product in one of the surf shops in bali, just wondering if any of our local dive shops carry such products? please share your thoughts on this. Thanks!  ;)

Use a special shampoo for the wetsuit, Don't use normal shampoo because the neoprene is become weak and tear from Deteriorated cells .you can find at the diveshop .. or check MCNETT product. awesome stuff.

SAfe diving

I soak mine overnite... then rinse... then hang in the bathroom to dry... then put in the plastic container with a thirsty hippo and keep it shut until the next dive trip.  Have never used any soap or shampoo...  and the suit still looks good with me in it  ;D ;D ;D

So bottom time, oppsss i mean bottom line is its ok to use detergent to clean the wetsuit. Clean and hang dry(not under the sun). then keep in in moisture free environment?
