    Cleaning wetsuits? What do you use?

    I have a few wetsuits and some are not looking pristine anymore, but I am unsure what works best to clean them? Does just scrubbing with dish soap and soft brush work good, or are there products out there that work better?

    Dish soap and water. Something like dawn. Don't let people pee in them!

    I use a product called sink the stink. Hydro turf sells it. Works pretty good

    I've been using wet suits for diving for over 30 years. We always just use dish soap and a new plastic garbage can. If the suit has been charged (peed in) they need to be cleaned right away!! They only need cleaning when they start smelling musty or get soiled from silt,etc. Just fill the garbage can up with water, soap and hand wash them. I leave mine in for a few hours and agitate them a few times. Then rinse(inside and out) with cold water and hang to dry. Make sure to store them out of sun light. Do not use the washer and dryer as it will destroy them.

    I would think one of the newer front load washers would work on a wet suit. I would think you could just make it skip the spin cycle and air dry it.

    The glued and lightly sewn seams will open with machine washing. Also don't use hot water as it breaks down the neoprene faster.
