Most people know the dangers of going out in the sun without properly protecting their skin with sunscreen. If you are fair-skinned or have children, you probably do take the necessary steps to protect yourself and your little ones. However, you may have found yellow stains on your bathing suit, on beach towels and on other clothing, and don't know how the stains got there. These stains were caused by contact with your skin before the sunscreen was dried. Before you toss out your favorite swimsuit, use this home remedy to remove those nasty yellow stains.
