Turn Regular Clothes into SPF30 Protected Clothes for $3

Sun Guard SPF protectionEveryone 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.

I would give Sun Guard SPF laundry additive 5 stars 5 stars

  1. Wow! What a great tip! I’m going to try it out. I use the sunscreen clothing, but it isn’t perfect for every occasion.

    You make it sound easy so I’m going to give it a try!

  2. What a fantastic product! I can’t believe I never knew about this, especially living in Australia with our harsh sun. I’ll be looking out for this! Stopping by from Manic Mondays over at Mommy A to Z

    1. I know right and so cheap! A definite must if you live where there is lots of sun. Saves having to lather on sunscreen where it’s already covered by the protected clothes.
