We've come back from holidays where the pool was a mix of salt and chlorine. It left funny rust marks on my bathers and my daughters have gone a funny grey colour and all smell incredibly strong of the mix. I have hand washed numerous times, they still smell - can I put them through the wash with some detergent or napisan?

Yes I rinsed them after every swim - drove me bonkers.
Can I put some detergent in? The rusty marks stained my tshirt that I had on over my wet bathers, apparently it's something to do with the water softness thingo in Fiji.

I always put the kids & my bathers in the machine. I give them a good rinse under the tap straight after swimming then put them through the next load of washing. Never had a problem doing so

I always machine wash the bathers. I put them, along with the beach towels we've just used, into the washing machine straight after swimming.
I find the key is to wash them straight away. They seemed to get ruined really quickly if they don't get washed straight away.
The rust mark is probably from a metal clasp or metal underwire in your bathers. I've never been able to totally get rid of rust marks once they've happened. Sorry..

All swimwear gets put in the normal wash as soon as we get home. There's always enough to make up a load so it happens that day.
