How do I remove aerosol sunscreen from my belongings after it sprayed all over my suitcase?
I had a can of this sunscreen
in my luggage during a trip, and despite setting the lock on the can, it somehow managed to spray all over a few of my belongings. A stupid mistake on my part.
There are two items in particular I'd like to rescue: my mouthguard and my jeans.
The mouthguard is a hard plastic custom-fitted piece that I wear it at night to prevent me from grinding my teeth. It would cost $350 or more to replace, so it's the priority. Despite brushing it vigorously with a toothbrush and toothpaste, rinsing it in hot water for ten minutes, and soaking it in mouthwash overnight, it still tastes like sunscreen.
For my clothes, I ran them through the laundry once, and my jeans seem to be the only thing still affected. There's a dark patch where the sunscreen was sprayed, and they still smell. Standard washing techniques don't seem to have done the trick, though I'm less attached to the jeans and will be ok replacing them if the only thing that'd guarantee their cleanliness is an expensive cleaning substance.
Any chemical engineers in the house with advice?
