Latex gets easily damaged when treated wrongly!
Don't expose latex to direct sunlight! Prolonged exposure to light and UV radiation can destroy latex clothing and causes changes of colour.
Oils, solvents and greases destroy latex so be careful not to expose to oil based lubricant and cream products. Copper can stain latex sheeting - avoid contact with coins.
Wash in clean warm water with no soap or detergent. Wipe off excess water with care, lie flat and talc lightly (baby powder) before putting away. Do not tumble dry, dry clean or iron in any circumstances.
Whenever latex gets in contact with anything oily/ fatty (oils, foods etc.), it must be washed immediately with soap and warm water. Caution: soap must be washed off again completely - even small remains of soap may harm latex!
Soaps must be mild, free of re-fatting ("re- moisturizing") skin care substances and not be perfumed, because fats and many fragrances decompose latex.
Polishing: Latex sheeting can be enhanced by light polishing with silicone-based polish (E.g. silicone spray from erotic store). White stains on the surface of latex will disappear with the use of silicone.
The surface of the latex sheeting can be permanently scratched if it is polished either too firmly or with too hard a cloth.
It is advisable to store clothes in the dark in a black suit bag when not being worn. If latex is stored in airtight containers (e.g. plastic bag), latex and anything else must be completely dry - prolonged humidity destroys the material.
