1. Why you shouldn’t pack a wet swimsuit

When you’re trying to eke out every last minute in the water, it’s tempting to just throw your wet swimsuit into a plastic bag to take home and deal with later. 

But if you do that, then you’re packing up sweat, sunscreen, chlorine, even bacteria, along with your swimsuit.

So, you have to rinse all that off before you do anything else.

2. Spin your wet swimsuit

After rinsing, stick your wet swimsuit into a salad spinner, and give it a good spin to remove the excess water.

3. Roll your swimsuit

If you don’t have a salad spinner, simply lay your wet swimsuit on a folded dry towel (folded for extra absorption), and roll up the towel with the swimsuit inside.

Using a wet bag

4. Use a wet bag

Remove your swimsuit from the salad spinner or the towel, whichever you have used, and drop it into a wet bag for packing. 

Once you're home, just hang your still damp swimsuit to dry it completely.
