Latex Care

Heavy Rubber Items - Such as Cuffs, Belts, Collars

How to clean: Use a cloth with warm soapy water and wipe down the rubber and clean off again with just warm water, then dry off with a towel. Don’t leave/submerge in water as this can damage the metal hardware.

Latex/Rubber Care

Tips on how to care for your Latex. Depending on the item the way you clean store and use it may change, below you will find a guide on some of the ways this can be done.

Storage

There are a few ways you can store your latex. Each method shares a few key things:

  • Keep out of direct sunlight when storing and store in a dark place; longer exposure to direct UV light will degrade the latex rubber and cause fading of the colour. A white looking layer can show up on the rubber because of this, but will go away more often than not with a good wash and polish.

  • Keep in a cool, dry place. Humidity and high heat will degrade the latex.

Coatings to put on the latex prior to storage: you can coat the items in talcum powder. If you do this you need to find one with no added oils or scents, as they will damage the latex if left on for long periods of time. Some of the latex care producers sell one that will suit.

The next coating you can use to store is a latex polish. Most polishes are silicone based - these are silicone blends that are formulated for this purpose. We do not recommend polishing with lubes designed for sexual activity, as they have other additives that we have found do not mix well with latex when left on for long periods of time.

You can place the latex in a zip lock bag; try and get ones without print on them as sometimes this can transfer onto the latex. You can also hang on a coat hanger, but use good plastic ones as some wooden ones may not be sealed fully and if the wood has been stained this may transfer.

Cleaning

Cleaning your latex as soon as possible after wearing it is key to the latex lasting, as you want to get all the oils and sweat off the latex. We recommend that you take your latex off in the shower as the water will help with undressing and washing away the sweat and oils from your skin. Doing so reduces the build-up on the latex but do remember to hang up the latex to dry as you don’t want to leave it wet for an extended amount of time. The latex should be washed properly as soon as possible with a wash designed for latex. We recommend the LUX Latex wash.

Steps to washing latex clothing:

  • Fill a basin or container with warm water and add the directed/ desired amount of latex cleaner to the water and mix in.

  • Place your latex items into the water and using your hands gently move the items around in the water to wash off any sweat, oil, silicone or other residue.

  • Once satisfied, empty and refill the basin or container with fresh warm water and rinse off the latex, removing any leftover cleaner.

  • If you are going to use talcum powder, hang to dry and then apply the talcum powder after the above step, then store as recommended.

  • If you are going to polish then once again empty and refill the basin or container with fresh warm water and add the latex polish, place the latex in the water, using your hands gently move the items around in the water, coating the latex in the polish. When satisfied it is fully polished remove from the water and hang to dry, then store as recommended.

Cleaning latex bags:

The bags can be washed in a similar manner to the above mentioned method for clothing, though it only needs to be done when quite dirty.

  • Wipe down with wet cloth and a little bit of latex cleaner if needed

  • If using the latex cleaner wipe, away with a clean cloth and dry.

  • Once dry, polish the bag and you're good to go.

Cleaning Latex Corsets

For the cleaning of a latex corset you do not want to submerge it in water instead you lay it down on a clean surface or even on a towel and have a blow of warm water with some of the cleaner you use in it, as usual we recommend the Lux clean. Then with a cloth such as a microfiber one you dip it into the water and wipe down the inside and out outside of the corset to clean it. After you will need some fresh water and to rinse out the cloth and wipe the corset down again to remove any remaining cleaner and dry with a towel.  Then you can either re-polish the corset it with Lux spray or use unscented talc.  

Extra cleaning notes

  • You may see temporary white spots from washing but these will go away when dry.

Dressing

Now here is the fun part of it all, getting dressed.

Kinds of dress aids:

Most dress aids are silicone based - these are silicone blends that are formulated for this purpose. Talcum powder is also an option, but we do not recommend it. Latex can also be chlorinated - this is a chemical process that fills in the pores of the latex with chlorine to make the latex silky smooth and this lets you slide it right on, the downside to chlorinated is that it is much harder to repair any damage.

Steps to dressing using a silicone dress aid:

  • Using your dress aid of choice, we recommend a good silicone dress aid and please do not use a sex lube as they have extra additives in them that can build up on the latex and be hard to remove. To start coat the inside of the garment with the dress aid, liberally covering all of the inside.

  • Coat the parts of your body you are going to have the latex on with the dress aid also. You want to make sure to have a good amount on your shoulder area if you have sleeves on the garment. Also around your bum if it has legs. These are the two main risk points.

  • Once you have done the above you can slide the latex on. If it is not sliding well just add more dress aid. It is recommended to wear gloves to protect the latex from your finger nails, especially if you have long or sharp nails. Even getting someone to help you get dressed is also a good option, and can add to the fun of it all.

  • Once the latex is on, smooth out the latex and move it until it is sitting comfortably on you, then you’re done. Add whatever other items you want to wear, touch up the polish, and go have fun!

Important things to know

  • Latex will stain when it comes into contact with copper, brass or bronze. Lighter colours can stain with the residue from touching copper coins, so be careful to keep dirty and sweating hands off your latex clothing.

  • Some people may have an allergic reaction from latex.

  • Keep away from open flame as latex will burn readily.
