Step 1 – Pre-treat the stain
Before you start, it's important to properly pre-treat the stain. By following these simple steps, you can ensure that the stain is ready for removal. Start by gently scraping off any excess sunscreen from the fabric using a spoon or a dull knife. Be careful not to spread the stain further. Next, blot the stained area with a clean cloth or paper towel to absorb any remaining sunscreen. Then, rinse the stain under cold running water to flush out as much of the sunscreen as possible. Finally, apply a small amount of Vanish powder (mixed with water to make a paste). Leave to work for a maximum of 5 minutes on coloured garments with Vanish Oxi Action Multi Power powder and 10 minutes for whites with Vanish Oxi Action Crystal White powder. For tough stains, soak your garment using one scoop of powder and 4L of water.
