Despite the advances in fibre technology, chlorine will eventually deteriorate costume fabrics. When your costume begins to bag or feels looser than when it was new, it is time to replace your costume.

Try them onto your face. To do this, lift them up to your face like you would wear them. Press them against your eyes for a few seconds. Now, let go and do not touch them. Do not put on the goggle straps. These can be either adjusted to fit. You are after the fit to your face, which will decide their seal. If the goggles hold to your face for at least 5 seconds, they are well-shaped for your face and will provide a good seal. While most goggles will not stay on perfectly without the strap, you should not have to tighten the strap to the point of creating dark red circles around your eyes in order to get a good seal.
Mirrored goggles are good for outdoor swimming because of their dark tint. Take care to avoid scratches.
Rinse goggles with cold water after use.
While Yingfa Long Swim Jackets do not need to be washed after every use it is important that they be naturally dried between uses and stored on a hanger, well ventilated to aid air circulation. Otherwise the fabric may mildew and smell.
Gentle, cold water machine wash with a mild laundry detergent will give best results and ensure long life of the garment. After washing, turn the garment inside out to help dry the fleecy lining.
Yingfa Jackets have a zipper with a double slider. This provides flexibility in how the jacket can be zipped.
Some owners report initial dificulty in operating the zipper. If you have trouble, start by ensuring both sliders are moved to the very bottom of the zip. Only then can the zip be engaged or disengaged properly.
If for a child, be sure to teach them the correct use of the zipper so they won't tear at it and damage the garment.
