How to get sunscreen/sweat stains out of white/light technical fabric?
August 8, 2013 7:27 AM Subscribe
I've got a pile of non-organic (microfiber/spandex/etc.) athletic clothing that I love, but every part of it that's white quickly turns orangish--especially around the neckline--if I wear it after putting on sunscreen. (I think sweat is a factor too, although probably less so.)
Since it's non-organic, I don't want to clean it in hot water or use bleach, but I have
tried soaking it in OxyClean, vinegar solutions, and WIN detergent (which claims to be specially formulated for polyester-type tech fabrics) before washing, and none of those seem to work. Is there anything that does?
