We all know how important wearing sunblock is, especially during the summer months. Unfortunately, applying sunblock to your children or pets (it’s a good idea to apply sunblock to the ears, nose, belly and groin areas of your dog) can quickly lead to quite the mess in your TriBridge Residential apartment.
To help clean up those stains, here are ways to remove sunblock from various surfaces in your apartment:
Walls – To clean accidental sunblock smears on your apartment’s walls, try dish soap and a wet rag, a commercial degreaser, or a 10:1 solution of vinegar and water.
Fabrics – Scrap excess sunblock from fabrics before using an enzyme cleaner. Air dry once clean.
Leather – No matter what you do, do not apply water to a sunblock stain on leather. Water will only cause the stain to run and spread. Instead, use a commercial degreaser specially formulated for leather.
Suede – Like leather, adding water to a sunblock stain on suede will only cause it to spread. Instead, apply cornstarch to the area and let it sit for 10 minutes. Finish by lightly brushing with vinegar to remove the remaining residue.
