Tricks to remove all the sand and wash towels and swimsuits after the beach

If you also love the beach and, when summer arrives, you can’t wait to spend hours and hours there, you know how annoying the sand that accumulates on beach towels and swimsuits is . It just doesn’t seem to go away with anything, not even with washing.

Grains of sand also get into the seams of garments, and seem to stick to the beach towel or towels. Before trying many methods to get rid of sand, go without fail with the tricks we suggest below.

As soon as you return from the beach, immediately immerse both your swimsuit and your beach towel. Doing so removes much of the sand.

Pour water and liquid detergent (which can be replaced with shampoo) into a bucket. Let it rest for about 30 minutes.

If there is too much sand accumulated, clean the fabric with a light-bristled toothbrush, such as a toothbrush. Place the garment on a flat surface and scrub with the toothbrush to release the sand.

In the case of beach towels, remember to shake them well outside the house. Sand buildup can permanently damage your washing machine.

When washing beach towels in the washing machine, pour about 50 ml of white vinegar into the detergent basket. This simple natural ingredient is very effective at softening fabric made rough by sand, salt water and sun.
