CARE OF LATEX PRODUCTS

STORAGE:
The clean and dry latex should be talced or be polished with suitable silicon oil. This prevents clinging when on the hanger.
Latex should be kept in a dark place.
Please note that latex should not be in contact with other textiles, metal or other coloured latex pieces as this could lead to
spots or ugly discoloration. This is especially advisable for light colours latex.
SUN:
Do not expose latex to direct sunlight for longer than is absolutely necessary. The UV-rays of sunlight harm the material.
WASHING:
Latex should be washed after wearing because fat and sweat can harm the material and may lead to signs of wear within a short
time. It is best to rinse the latex in lukewarm water in a washbasin/bathtub only with a mild soap/shampoo.
If you add a spoonful of silicon oil to the water you receive an even shine on the latex surface that prevents clinging.
Do not use talcum powder on latex that have been treated with silicon oil, because the oil mixes with the talcum and the surface
becomes streaky, which is not a pleasant sight. If this happens still it is no problem. Simply rinse the latex again.
GETTING DRESSED:
Never use an oil (baby oil) or oil-based product.
Long fingernails can puncture latex clothes. So take care with nails and do not bore nails into the material when you put on your
latex clothes.
The most simple-to-use dressing aid is silicon oil. Our silicon oil is especially developed for use with latex.
It´s dermatologically tested, tasteless and perfectly suitable for lubrification and massage as well as slippery latex plays.
Use silicon oil especially for transparent products because the transparency shows advantage only with this oil.
GLOSSY SHINE:
To make your latex shine brilliantly you need our Latexa Star Shine Spray (1003) or our Pjur Cult Spray (1007).
DISCOLORATION:
Latex should not be in contact with metal pieces. Especially precious metals like gold, copper or bronze produce ugly stains that
cannot be removed.
With transparent or light-coloured latex it is possible that other garments release colour pigments that produce ugly stains on
your latex.
Besides you should be careful with cosmetic products and perfume.
UNDERNEATH YOUR CASUAL WEAR:
It can be very exciting to wear latex beneath your usual clothes. But beware that the material gets dull where it rubs on the
textiles; on these spots it cannot be made shiny anymore. Through this wear and tear the latex become prone to expansion
overload if worn quite often.
SYNTHETIC MATERIAL:
Some synthetic materials (plastic, jelly, etc.) contain softing agents that can damage latex severely.
Don´t keep latex in contact with such synthetic material for a long time.
