Everyone knows how soft baby’s skin is and I was determined to keep Ella’s protected as much as possible. In the last couple of years, I started to see clothing with SPF protection but they were a little pricey, especially considering how fast little ones grow out of their clothes. I again stumbled upon a product which turns regular clothes that are made from natural material (cotten, linen etc) into SPF protected clothing for $3! It’s a laundry additive that you put in with a full load into your washing machine and after one treatment, your clothes increases to a SPF 30 protection level. Untreated, most items are naturally around a SPF 5 level. I thought it was too good to be true but it’s recommended by the Skin Cancer Foundation so I figured it couldn’t hurt. Now every summer, I treat Ella’s clothes with Sun Guard and it lasts for 20 washes which is pretty much the entire summer. I love this stuff and it’s so easy to use. And when we travel and I know we’re going to do a lot of sight seeing in sunny weather, it’s extra comforting to know she’s extra protected. Mind you I still lather her in sunscreen from head to toe which I’m sure is overkill.
