Donating Swimsuits to a Thriftstore

Can you donate swimsuits to a thriftstore? I mean I know it's hygienic and all, but can you? I've seen men swimsuits before, but not so much women's. Why? Also, is there a product for used swimsuits to be clean and prevent the future customers from getting sick?

I have seen swimsuits, pajamas and bras at the thrift store. I have purchased pajamas. I have not purchased swimsuits

Most thrift stores will take swimsuits that are clean and have no stains.
They will discard any with stains or any that do not appear to be clean.
They will generally discard suits where the elastic is stretched out of shape.

It is generally accepted that anyone purchasing used clothing will wash/clean them before wearing but a thrift store has no control over that.
Running a swimsuit through a regular wash should sanitize them but adding white vinegar to the rinse might also help.

On used selling apps I have seen people sell swim suits.

I would call and ask your local thrift store if they accept worn swim suits for donation.

In my town thrift stores do not take them, but Plato Closet will take pristine ones. I haven't owned a bathing suit in years. When I did I just rinsed them after every wearing in warm water with a drop woolite or dreft and sun dried them. The heat kills germs but too hot can ruin a bathing suit if it is hotter than say hot tub water.

Never use bleach, as it would ruin the suit. That was just for personal use. I don't know of any product to sanitize a suit that wouldn't ruin it.

There are two things I personally wouldn't buy used or donate... underpants and bathing suits. They are just too personal, but that is just me.

I have both seen and purchased swimsuits in Goodwill and other thrift stores. Sometimes they have purchased new ones in lots from failed outlets or China factories but a lot of time they are simply donated

Places like Goodwill take them for sure. Two of my local mom and pop thrift shops take them, too. Just ask the shop.
