Not sure if this has been asked before, but has anyone got a tried method that helps remove the yellow stains from white t-shirts, caused by sunscreen (and possibly sweat).
I have already tried napisan, lemon juice and sard
Thank you

  • For me there is a point when nothing removes the stain. Unfortunately some fabrics are worse than others. I’ve wondered about dying the whole item, also just use it for gardening or odd jobs.

  • I find sun gets out alot of stains, worth a try.

  • I make a paste out of napisan and rub directly on the place the stain is and leave it on for at least 30 mins.

  • Soak in nappy san and then dry it in full sun

  • napisan is the go to.

  • Some great ideas I’m going to try, thanks for asking the question and for those who answered…will have to find some sunlight soap

  • Napisan is my go-to, though you could try Sunlight laundry soap.

  • I have used hydrogen peroxide in the past. Mind you if you already have washed in hot water that can set it. If you soak the garment in Lemon Juice it will work with a table spoon of baking soda, the citric acid reacts stains leave over night then wash and dry in the sunshine. I wash all my white sheets with one cup of lemon juice and 1/2 cup of baking soda added to the water after the washing machine has filled. I soak any stains over night in the same amount (one cup of lemon juice and 1/2 cup of baking soda ) then wash next day and they come out just like new!

  • I scrub any stain first with Sunlight block soap followed by nappisan, when that doesn’t have result you could try hydrogen peroxide or even a bleach solution for white shirts.

  • I’m following too! Sometimes I find napisan does absolutely nothing
