{tutorial} bikini care

So, our trip isn't until summer but I'm on the hunt for bikinis and sundresses as though we were leaving in a week. It is what it is. Plus, with work being insanely, head-spinning boring right now, I find my mind wandering to my beach vacation to motivate me to keep on keepin on...

I need to get my kinis in time to soak them in vinegar. Are you going "Huh? Why?" It's a trick I learned when I was on swim team.. or lifeguarding...or something. I don't remember; I've slept since then. But, seriously.. soaking it in vinegar helps lock in the color and preserve it much, much longer. I used to think it was just an old wives tale until I did it and a fellow lifeguard didn't (same swimsuit) and mine looked MUCH more vibrant in a month than hers did. 

Anyhoodle, super easy: combine 2 tsp of vinegar with one quart of cool water (4 cups). I think I used 4 tsp of vinegar and 2 quarts of water to soak my suit. Whatever, just adjust appropriately. Soak for 30 minutes to an hour. Rinse in cool water and hang dry! Don't wring out.

Easy peasy!
