I know there has been some posts on this subject before, but apart from putting my floatation suit in the wash or buying some waterproof sealant after washing the suits at a high temp in the bath. Is there anything else I can do to stop my suit from smelling.
Today I put 2 pairs of floatation bottoms and 1 top in the bath with warm water and fairy liquid and gave them a good sponge down, then put them on the washing line. The smell is not as strong as before but is still there, is this the best I can expect?

the best way to wash a floaty I find is to put it on and stand next to the wife, a bucket of warm water and persil liquid and a small brush from a dustpan and brush set and ask her for a quick rubdown and hosing
(dont call her a scrubber they have no sense of humour, Ive still got the lumps)
