Hi I'm Rachel Yatuzis and I'm going to show you how to remove the chlorine smell from your bathing suit. Don't wash your bathing suit in the washing like you do your other clothes because it could fade really easily like other clothes do, you want your bathing suits to last and it is really easy to wash them by hand. All you need is a bowl of water and add a splash of vinegar. Vinegar will get rid of any odor, throw your swim suit in there and let it soak. You can let it soak for 15 minutes or you can let it soak for an hour, it depends on how bad the smell is. You can let it soak overnight if you want. Vinegar is harmless. After you let it soak don't wring it out too aggressively because you don't want to stretch it out. You want to be gentle with the fibers of it. Grab two towels. I've got two right here, lay the swim suit out flat on top of one towel, throw the other towel on top and then roll it up. Don't roll it up too tight. Roll it up pretty loosely and this will get the swim suit out of the way while it dries. I'm Rachel Yatuzis and that is how you get the chlorine smell out of a swim suit.
