Latex, by its own nature, is a fragile material and great care needs to be taken in its handling and storage. If cleaned and treated correctly, your garment will last you for many years.
N.B. All garments are individually prepared and checked prior to dispatch. Our clothing is given a light dusting of talcum powder to prevent the surfaces from sticking together.
We would strongly advise you to follow the British Standard 3574 guidance when it comes to handling and storing your latex garments.
Some key tips:
Always take care when putting on your latex clothing; we recommend using our Rub-Her Silicone Based Lubricant. This multi-purpose lubricant acts as a dressing aid, enabling the smooth pulling on of your garment, but also 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. Following these steps will keep your garments fresh and looking their best.
Once your garment is completely dry, dust lightly with talcum powder to prevent any surfaces from 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 3574 guidance.
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.
