Suncream stain advice

9
Found 25th May 2010
Can anybody share their tips to get suncream out of white clothes?
I've looked online and tried suggestions such as white vinegar, stain remover etc but it's not shifting, although has faded.
Going to go and get some napisan and try that but just wondered if anybody had any tips?
Also if anybody can suggest one that doesn't stain? Have been using nivea baby cream spf50 & the bottle doesn't say "may stain clothing" either.
Thanks in advance for any suggestions

Well I'm soaking in napisan as we speak but still open to any other suggestions in case it doesn't work.
At a loss otherwise as my son will most likely get it on his school tshirt every day whilst it's hot!
I read that white spirit get's it off cars although I think it maybe harsh on the paintwork, would it be worth a try on your sofa? Try in an inconspicious area 1st.

I'm suprised though that it doesn't say about staining on the bottle too

Think we're using the same one. My daughter had a little on the waist of her trousers which came out with white vinegar but my son's collar & sleeves on his tshirts are covered as well as random blobs.

I've tried vanish bar, vanish oxi action, white vinegar, washing powder, washing up liquid. It is slowly fading but I live in hope that the napisan works.
I'll let you all know

Sassie: I think I used that one last year I may have to go back to it. Thanks

It was the soltan one we used last year, dont use it anymore as she is allergic, use the sunsense one now, great for kids with eczema. not sure about staining though only used it a few times this year so havent really noticed yet, oh did it come out with tha napisan?

:x No it didn't, so i'm soaking again. I live in hope as he's stained 3 tshirts this week so far!
I'm waiting on the roll on ones from Avon as I ordered them last week so am hoping they won't stain as they're less messy too...
