Washing & Care Instructions

Manakai Swimwear are handmade creations. Therefore it is important that you never put your bikini in a washer or dryer. We suggest always rinsing with fresh water after each dip in the ocean or pool. To clean bikini soak it for 15 minutes in a mild detergent and irritate where needed. Rinse with fresh cold water. Hang bikinis indoors away from direct sunlight to preserve color and elasticity. Keep in mind if you live in your bikini we suggest owning several!!
