To clean, hand wash items in a mild detergent. Some Melissa Odabash beachwear can be put in the washing machine, but the brand still advises that hand washing is the best method. Individual care instructions can be found on the label stitched into every piece.

Reshape your swim and beachwear when wet, before laying flat to dry

When drying, keep away from direct sunlight and heat

Rinse before you wear for the first time, as some fabric may not be completely color fast
