There is nothing worse than getting ready to go out and discovering that the T-shirt you intended to wear has a stain. Inevitably, it is a stain that requires a great deal of work to get out and should be attended to immediately. While no stain should be left to set in, some stains are worse than others and need extra attention. Fake tan moisturizer is one of those stains.
Stains resulting from the use of fake tan moisturizer have both color and grease to contend with in terms of getting rid of the stain, not the easiest combination to deal with. The first thing to do is to make sure you have no more moisturizer on your hands or any other part of your body that may touch the T-shirt so you will not make the stain worse. Turn the T-shirt inside out and work on removing the stain in this way so that it can lift off rather that go through the fabric.
Take a light colored absorbent cloth and lay it beneath the stain so that it does not transfer onto another part of the tee while you are working to get rid of the stain. Next use a dry paper towel laid gently over the stain to get the worst of it absorbed before you begin treating what is left.
Apply a clear dish detergent, that is designed to fight grease, mixed with water and dab gently at the stain. If this does not remove the fake tan stain, use hydrogen peroxide and attempt to gently spot clean it. Test treat an inconspicuous spot first to make sure the peroxide doesn’t damage the shirt. You may also want to try glycerin to help remove the stain. When the stain is successfully gone, wash it as usual.
If you cannot get the stain out, add a pretreatment to the other things you have put on the stain and let it sit. Then wash as usual. Do not dry the item until it is stain free or you will be out of luck and have a permanent stain on your hands.
