Vanish Beach Stains This Summer

Good weather is the perfect opportunity to spend time with your children outside the house and enjoy the sunshine. A day at the beach may not be something that you often have the chance to do, so taking your family there for some quality time is something that you may want to consider.

No matter where you go, there is always a risk of a few mishaps and the occurrence of a clothes stain with it. As is always the way with clothes stains, detergent alone might not be enough to tackle your laundry load after a day at the beach, but Vanish is up to the task.

Here are a few things that you might want to consider when planning a day at the beach with your family:


This is usually on the cards for most people when the sun is out. Although they give you the chance to bond whilst sharing and enjoying good foods in the sunshine, Braais also come with the potential for stains.

A marinade can be an integral part of a Braais, as it not only adds flavour but also helps to tenderise the meat. There are many instances when the combination of juices from the meat and marinade can end up on your clothes such as during the cooking process, where sizzling meat can splash and spit hot liquid onto your clothing. If you’re tucking into food that requires a more hands on approach, like chicken wings, eating with your hands can create a lot of mess if you don’t have anything to wipe with.

Whilst they are the perfect thing to accompany your food, condiments such as ketchup can also be very messy difficult to remove from clothing as it contains ingredients that make it more challenging than others. For example, ketchup’s key component is tomatoes, which are acidic, that stains in its powder form.

Ice cream

Is any summer ever really complete without an ice cream in the sunshine? It may be delicious and the perfect way to cool you down but it still has its downside that come in the form of melted drips on your clothes!

Fruit juice

It’s always good practice to drink, and encourage your children to drink, plenty of water, it’s easy to become dehydrated in hot weather – especially children if they are running around[1]. Sometimes fruit juice can be a refreshing thirst quencher, however, can stain your clothes.

As you have just read, there’s a lot to think about when it comes to planning a day at the beach with your family. However, you don’t have to worry about any messy mishaps that happen because Vanish can easily remove it, so you can spend your day at the beach having fun with your family without the worry of the stains later.
