Q & A: Can I wear KT Tape in the pool?

“Absolutely!  KT Tape can be worn in water and KT Tape PRO stays on even better.  In the summer, you will want to be sure and use rubbing alcohol on your skin to remove any suntan oils or lotions.  It’s best to wait an hour after application before you swim, shower, or exercise.  This will allow the tape time to adhere well to dry skin.  When you are finished with your water activity, and the tape is wet, rinse the tape area thoroughly to remove any other chemical agents.  Then pat the tape dry with a towel, allowing it to dry for 20 minutes.  Enjoy the rest of your summer, allowing KT Tape to make you more comfortable during activities!”
