We've partnered with Jeeves, London's finest dry cleaners, with locations around the world including New York, to give you tips on how to care for your clothes.


How to Remove Sun Lotion Stains

  • First, check the care label to determine if your garment is washable. If your garment is dry clean only, do not attempt at home remedies or proceed with caution
  • Rinse the garment in cool water.
  • If the sun lotion stain is on a washable garment, pre-treat the stain with a bit of vinegar or fresh lemon juice to counteract the sun lotion.
  • Apply the vinegar or lemon juice solution to the stain and add a good amount of salt over the stained area (the amount of salt depends on the size of the stain).
  • Let sit overnight, brush off the salt and launder as usual (do not use bleach, of course).
  • If the stain does not come off entirely, repeat the process.

Removing Sand Particles from Swimwear Fabric

  • Rinse the garment with cold water
  • Use a sticky lint roller to remove sand particles from the textile fibres
  • Repeat the process until the sand particles are no longer in the fabric

Additional Tips:

  • Ensure your sun burn prevention product is dry before putting on any swimwear or clothing items.
  • Sunscreen with the ingredient Avobenzone will chemically react with water with a high iron content (hard water) and cause rust / orange staining.
  • Myths: Bleach does not help stain removal.
Traditional swimwear fabrics are made of plastics that do not decompose and pollute our waters with microplastics when washed. New technologies have paved the way for ethical swimwear made of fabrics that include the world's first biodegradable synthetic fibre and fibres made from reclaimed plastic.
