I've tried normal machine wash, I've tried scrubbing them by hand but i can't get the sun cream marks out of DD's t-shirts, any ideas? Thanks smile

Very difficult, possibly impossible, I've ruined so many white T shirts with pinkish stains from sunscreen (it also destroys bikinis). Have you tried leaving the piece of clothing in the sun for a few hours/days?

Have you tried rubbing some washing up liquid into the area before you put them in the machine? No idea if it works on suncream but it is very good for grease marks or oil.

Marking my place.

In answer to the op, no I havent. I think some of the stains have faded from repeated washing, but it's basically ruined all my white tops.

Thanks, will try leaving in the sun and then washing up liquid. Will report back on success or otherwise.

A good discussion here - although trying The Works sounds really scary:

I think the stain devil for cooking oil, also takes out sun lotion stains
