Washing a Latex cape.


Hey all.

I recently got a latex cape and I am going to give it a wash.

Would it be ok to just hang it in my shower and let the water run on it?

Or is there a better way?

Thanks for any help.

If it is a heavy latex (like Paul's capes) you can do just about anything to it and it won't get ruined!

He washes his on his driveway with a little ajax and water. Then armor-all's it when it is dry.

That's it!

If it is one of the rectangular variety, you can just toss it in the washer with the other bedsheets

what about rubber rot?
latex also gets smushy when you run hot water on it. latex is pourus and organic, so be careful to not get it moldy or mildewy...
i'd use lukewarm soapy water and a sponge, then armorall after a towel drying...

When I washed mine I just used cold water and than hung it up near an open window to dry with some towels on the floor under it to catch the run off. I did think about putting out on the clothesline but some one might have nocked it off and the sun would not have been to good for it.
