DRESS

Because sunscreen is an oil-based product, the first goal, according to Today’s experts, is to get the oil out of the garment.

Turn the clothing inside out and rinse the stained area with cold water.

Mix warm water with dish soap and blot the stain.

Rinse with cold water.

Put in the washing machine with heavy duty detergent.

Only put in the dryer when you are sure the stain has been removed as heat can help it cure.

If further treatment is needed, experts recommend soaking the clothing in a solution of cold water and oxygen-based bleach overnight.

Always follow the cleaning instructions on the label.

FABRIC FURNITURE AND CAR SEATS

Combine 1 teaspoon of dish soap, 1 tablespoon of white vinegar and 1 cup of warm water in a spray bottle.

Before you start spraying, add a teaspoon of baking soda to the mixture.

The baking soda and vinegar combine to create a lot of bubbles, so be sure to put the lid on quickly.

Spray a white cloth with the solution and gently blot the stains.

If your furniture or car seats are significantly damaged, you can wipe down the entire surface with the solution.

Let the fabric dry.

LEATHER FURNITURE AND CAR SEATS

Dip a microfiber cloth in the solution, but just enough to slightly dampen it.

Wipe the leather surface and rinse the cloth regularly.

Dry the leather furniture with a clean, dry microfiber cloth.

MICROFIBER FURNITURE

Using rubbing alcohol and a white cloth, scrub the microfiber surface where the sunscreen stain occurred.

Because alcohol evaporates quickly, your furniture will be dry within minutes.

Once dry, use a scrub brush in a circular motion to fluff the fabric.

When cleaning sunscreen, remember that using products with oxygenated bleach or chlorine will only make the stain worse, as these products contain chemicals similar to sunscreen.

The longer you leave a sunscreen stain, the worse it gets – so scrub it off!
