How to Avoid this Tan Faux Pas (And Save your Sheets)

Tan stains.

We’ve all been guilty of jumping into bed too quickly after a self-tan session, leaving your beautiful white sheets a lovely shade of bronze. It is annoying as foundation marks around your favourite new white t-shirt. But the tell-tale tan stains post-application is something that can be easily avoided with Sunescape stain-free hacks that will change your life (and save your sheets).

Luckily our professional spray formula, and self-tanners are all quick drying, so you don’t have to wait hours before you can hit the hay and avoid those tan stains. We recommend waiting for the sweet spot, around 20 minutes after your application. This ensures the tan has settled on your skin and started to dry evenly. There is nothing worse than smudging a fresh manicure, let alone a whole body tan, so trust us on this… Good things come to those who wait.

If you’re one of those impatient bunch who just cannot resist the temptations of a comfy bed or throw on a beautiful white dress seconds after you tan, no worries! But girl, it’s time to act fast on those tan stains! Run the underside of the fabric under cold water until it runs clear and put them in a warm cycle with an added stain remover. If all else fails, dish soap is your new best friend, get rubbing…
