If you need to take more drastic action, here’s how (and it involves household items you probably already have);

What you’ll need;

A large bucket, washing up liquid, mild washing detergent, antiseptic mouthwash, a hanger, 2 wide mouth plastic bottles and your stinky p@ss smelling wetsuit!!!

Step 1 –  Half fill your bucket with fresh cold water.

Step 2 – Add washing up liquid, washing detergent and mouth wash to the water. Stir.

Step 3 – Add warm water to the bucket to make lukewarm.

Step 4 – Wash your smelling wetsuit! Hand wash for a few minutes and then let it soak for a further 15 minutes.

Step 5 – Make your wetsuit friendly hanger by putting the wide mouth bottles on the end of your hanger. This aids air flow and speeds up drying.

Step 6 – Hang your wetsuit out to dry. Avoid drying in direct sunlight.

Step 7 – Rinse wetsuit with fresh cold water.
