I am seeking help in cleaning a dirty tri suit. It has black marks all over it I assume from my wet suit. Now It has big splotches in the chest area where I have put Body Glide to reduce chafing. Frankly, it doesn't look good. Is there a way to get these stains out, especially the ones caused by the Body Glide?
I got perm. marker on my singlet, which is probably made out of similar material of your trisuit. I got most of it out by piling on some powder detergent and some woolite (?sp) and letting it sit for awhile. Then I just threw it in my load of wash. Most of it is gone. I might try it again, as I haven't dried it in the dryer to have the stain set. Good Luck.

Goo gone works for grease stains. Soak the stains then wash in hot water. Baby powder helps too but isn't nearly as effective as goo gone. I imagine the goo gone would be able to break up the rubber stains from the wet suit.

Isn't OxyClean supposed to be good for that stuff?
I tried that this morning. And it helped a little with the Body Glide stains. It didn't do anything with the black marks, which must either be from the wetsuit or from markers.
