You may wonder if rinsing before entering a swimming pool is a waste of water, but it's actually an eco-friendly choice every swimmer should make. Our bodies have natural oils, in addition to any skin care products like body lotion and deodorants we use, which can contaminate pool water. A quick rinse can easily remove those oils and skin care products from your body and help keep the pool water cleaner. Cleaner water means less chlorine needs to be used, and less chlorine means fewer chemicals on your skin.
