My husband has had a few patches of skin cancer removed over the last year. The sun is nothing to play with. And we take this very seriously now in our house. I had heard of SunGuard sun protection – a powder that you put in with your wash and it gives your clothing a SPF of 30, blocking 96% of the sun’s harmful rays.
SunGuard does not alter the look, feel or color of the garment and lasts for 20 washings. I bought several boxes and started adding it to each load. I will do this again in a few weeks when we start breaking out the summer clothes.
I highly recommend SunGuard to anyone. Especially to those with children (product is recommended for over 6 months of age), have light skin, for those who have pre-existing or are prone to skin cancer.
And of course, you still need to wear sunscreen, particularly where your clothing does not cover the skin.
