I have noticed a few of my lighter coloured tops have become stained around the neck from sun cream. Does anyone else find this? Is there anything I can do to remove it?

Watching with interest. The suncream we use leaves yellow stains which I can't get out.

It's very difficult to get out. It's basically a grease mark so a very hot wash with a good scrub with something like soda crystals or fairy liquid may help but wouldn't do your clothing much good unless very hardy cotton or similar.
We switched to SunSense sun cream (specifically the toddler milk one) last year as DS gets a rash with other brands and we've found it doesn't stain.

I don't know either but watching with interest as I have clothes I'm considering binning as a result.

I've had some (imperfect) success with stain remover bar soap but no success at all with stain remover sprays like vanish.

Even the dry cleaner can't get the sunscreen stains out of one of my shirts, they said that I'd washed it too hot and set the stain sad
