Is the OP discussing foulies or wetsuits. Foulies can just be washed and hung. That also gets the salt out and stops some leaks.

Visualize the vastness of the oceans; the infinity of the heavens; the fickleness of the wind; the artistry of the craft and the frailty of the sailor. The oneness that may be achieved through the harmony of these things may lead one to enlightenment. - Flying Welshman
