How do I wash my Self Tanning Mitt?Updated 3 months ago

There are two main ways you can clean your Self Tanning Mitt which include washing your Tanning Mitt in the sink or washing your Tanning Mitt in the washing machine. 

How to wash your Tanning Mitt in the sink:

1. Rinse - 
Firstly, we recommend rinsing your mitt under warm water to remove sany excess self tanner that can be built in the mitt. Make sure you give it a good squeeze and make sure the water coming out of it isn’t brown anymore.

2. Fill your sink with water - 
Start to fill up your sink or bucket with warm water and add a small amount of mild soap or laundry detergent until the mixture gets bubbly. Honestly, just pick up what ever you have laying around the house!

3. Scrub, Scrub and Scrub - 
Place your tanning mitt in the soapy water concoction and use a soft sponge or brush to scrub the surface of the mitt. Make sure you get into every nook and cranny of that mitt and make sure no more brown residue is coming off it.

4. Give it another rinse -
Once there is no tan residue coming off the mitt, rinse your mitt again thoroughly under warm water remove all the soap. No bubbles or soup should be left of the tan applicator!

5. Time to Dry -
Squeeze out all the excess water that comes from the mitt and lay it flat on a clean, dry towel. Make sure it’s not in reach for any young children or our fury friends! Allow the tanning mitt to air dry completely before your next bronzing sesh!

How to wash your Tanning Mitt in the washing machine:

1. Rinse -
Make sure you rinse off your tanning mitt and ensure there is no excess tan that is left on the applicator prior to putting it in the washing machine.

2. Put it in with your darks - 

When you go to wash your next dark load (dark colours), chuck in your self tanning mitt to that wash. Just keep it on a cool, delicate wash and let your machine work it’s magic.

3. Leave it out to dry -

Do not make the mistake of chucking your tanning mitt in the dryer! Grab out a towel and lay it down flat until it’s fully dried.
