Are Rashguards Chlorine Resistant?

Wednesday, October 21st, 2009

Here at the Beach Depot this is a common question that we often get calls and emails about from customers.  The answer is yes, our rashguard shirts are designed to be chlorine resistant and withstand repeated use in a pool (or the ocean for that matter).


Whenever you use your rashguard in either salt water or chlorinated water we do recommend rinsing the swim shirt off with fresh water after each session.  Doing so will ensure your rashguard swim shirt will last for many seasons.  When salt or chlorinated water dries on a rashguard (and sits in a hot car all

 summer long) over time this can slowly begin to breakdown the lycra fabric. Rinsing with fresh water will keep your rashguard surf shirt looking and feeling great for many many uses to come.  I hope this post helped answer your questions.  Please feel free to contact us directly at  Thanks!

The Beach Depot is proud to offer USA manufactured high quality SPF 150+ UV rash guards. Our online store and blog is intended to be your complete resource for sun protection. Subscribe to our RSS feed for weekly tips on sun protection, news and the latest information on our sites, and

Tip #1- A rashguard is a lycra shirt that provides total sun protection and is recommended strongly by dermatologists to be used in addition to sunscreen, sun glasses and hats to protect you and your family’s skin from getting sun burned.

Swim shirts and surf shirts are excellent for any water sport or outdoor activity as they are extremely breathable, do not absorb water, are athletic fitting, and provide superior comfort with flexibility. We offer a huge selection of colors, styles, and sizes from men’s, to women’s rashguards, kids, toddler, even XXL adults.

The ideal strategy would be to wear a rash guard shirt for coverage on your body and arms while caking the sun screen on your face, neck, ears, legs, feet, etc. A rashguard shirt does not wash off like sun screen and guarantees total coverage with no missing of spots on your back, or hard to reach places. We also strongly advise wearing sun glasses and hats, as the eyes and scalp are commonly neglected areas that get maximum sun exposure.
