Caring for your latex.
Latex by its own nature is a fragile material and great care needs to be taken in its handling and storage. If treated correctly, your garment will last you for many years.
N.B. All garments are individually prepared and checked prior to dispatch.
Westward Bound strongly recommends that you handle and store the goods in accordance with British Standard 3574 which provides, among other things, that:
Take care when putting on your latex clothing, we recommend using our M043 Rub-Her Silicone Based Lubricant. This liquid not only acts as a dressing aid, enabling the smooth pulling on of your garment, it also is a polishing liquid enabling you to obtain the desired high gloss effect.
When taking off your latex clothing you must ensure you clean it properly by lightly washing it in tepid soapy water (a mild washing-up liquid will suffice) to remove any sweat or silicone from the surface of the latex. Pat dry with a soft towel or hang to dry.
Give your garment a light dusting with talcum powder to prevent the surfaces sticking together.
If you do not wish to hang the garment, talc then loosely fold and place the item in a black plastic bag. Place the bag in a dry, dark place. Ensure you place tissue paper between the latex and any metal fastenings or buttons to avoid any possibility of staining.
The seller cannot be liable for any defects arising through the failure of the buyer to store and handle in accordance with the British Standard.
When taking out of storage use our M006 Rubberotix Polishing Liquid to remove all traces of talcum powder and your garment is ready to be worn once again.
