How to do it properly
Get a bowl of hot water, soft soap (shampoo works good) and a towel. Put a small amount of water and soap on your towel and softly rub the towel against the latex. Once you got every part of your waist trainer washed it is important that you put it up to dry. To fasten the drying process use a dry towel to wipe the majority of water off, use some baby powder or your hairdryer on the lightest setting.
