Laundry Tips for Summer Camp Clothes

Summer camp is such an exciting time filled with new friends and memories. However, you don’t want your daughter to bring the dirt and grime of camp home, too! With the right laundry tips and tricks, caring for summer camp clothing essentials can be a breeze so your daughter can focus on what really matters–having fun! 

Keeping girls’ clothes fresh and clean is important for their comfort and confidence. By properly sorting clean versus dirty clothes, you can streamline the washing process. Also, it may be a good idea to teach her how to hand-wash and air-dry for times when washers and dryers aren’t readily available or she needs to clean delicate items. Remember that while the sun has a natural bleaching powder that’s great for eliminating odors, it can cause fading if items are left outside for too long.

Yellowberry summer camp essentials are designed to be easy to hand-wash and dry, regardless of the location. Our bras, underwear, and loungewear are made with high-quality materials, including soft cotton. You’ll want to pay careful attention to items like our seamless underwear or  DIY summer camp t-shirts that may be better hand-washed than machine-washed.

Proper Hand-Washing Tips

Campers often don’t have access to a washer and dryer; this is when hand-washing becomes an invaluable skill. One of our  summer camp packing tips is to send your daughter to camp with a gentle detergent to make doing laundry by hand simple.

Here’s our step-by-step guide for hand-washing your daughter’s Yellowberry favorites:

  • Fill a sink or other basin with lukewarm water and add a small amount of detergent.
  • Dunk the clothes and swish them around, focusing on any stains or odors that need extra attention.
  • After fully rinsing the clothes, wring out any extra water and lay flat on a clean towel to absorb any leftover moisture. 
  • Finally, hang the clothes to dry! 

Stubborn Stains?

When faced with stubborn stains at summer camp, don't worry! There are plenty of tricks to tackle even the toughest spots. Here’s what we suggest:

  • Treat the stain as soon as possible. The more time it has to set, the harder it will be to remove.
  • If your daughter is dealing with grass, mud, or food stains, try applying a small amount of detergent directly onto the spot and gently rub it in with your fingers.
  • Oil-based stains, like sunscreen, can be trickier. Sprinkle baking soda onto the stain to absorb the oil before fully washing the item. You could also create a paste of baking soda and water to treat the stain. Let it sit for a few minutes before rinsing.

Stubborn stains may require multiple treatments, so be patient and persistent. Once you’ve fully treated the stain, wash the clothing as usual.
