How to remove Sunscreen from Swimwear

August 22, 2019 1 Comment

I don’t know you but I am super annoying with the sunscreen that leave yellow marks on the kids or on my swimwear … the fact is the more sun protective the creams are, the more they will leave the marks ; that is the consequence of the anti UVA component contained by the product. Well until now, no big deal, except that this is quite impossible to remove those marks ☹ So imagine a white swimwear that turns yellowish … it does not sound great.

Eventually, after experiencing several ways to wash them, I can share 2 tips that work to reduce substantially the damages … quite simple and not at all expensive …

1 – Use Household Soap or Marseille soap, and rub the clothes, rinse and you will see that the majority of the marks will be gone.


2- Use Dish liquid and do the same, rub, rinse.

PS: I do that every evening when I rinse the swimwear after the sea or the pool. And After the holiday I just do the same + put them in the washing machine in the normal cycle.

Give it a try and tell me if it works for you !

Thank you for this tip! I’ll try next time we will use swimsuits and I’ll let you know…
Do you think it would work on other fabrics such as white cotton tee-shirt as well?
Many thanks
