suncream you may be stuck with but the grass stains should come out with Vanish stick/bar

I thought it was just me not being able to get sunscreen out of white clothes. I use one of those Dylon white sachets, and that helps.
WTF do they put in sunscreen????

ths childrens suncream seems to stain far worse, i suppose cos its thicker/stronger, and cos they wriggle when you apply it grin

If you wash cotton whites at 90° with Ariel and a large scoop of Vanish whitener, most things will come clean and survive.

Use Avène factor 40 spray - it washes out of everything!

i may try a hot wash anna thanks, i really wanted dds clothes to last as we go away again soon but they are yellow despite 4 washes now at 40.

40° was never going to get suncream out!
