Often overlooked, your trusty tanning mitt is essential when it comes to achieving the perfect tan. We don’t know if you’ve ever tried to self tan without one (definitely not something we’d recommend) but, in short, it will leave you with a big, streaky mess. Knowing how to clean a tanning mitt will help your tanning glove to last longer and make it that much easier to achieve a flawless glow every time.
Our guide to tanning mitt care
When it comes to looking after your tanning glove, washing after every use is essential. Keeping your tanning mitt clean will not only make it easier to apply a streak-free tan, but will also make your glove last longer. When properly cared for, a good quality tanning mitt can last anywhere from 3 months to a year before it needs to be replaced, depending on how regularly you tan.
When your mitt begins to lose its shape and becomes stained, you’ll know that it’s time to treat yourself to a new tanning glove. If you’re looking for the best tanning mitt, we recommend our Dual Sided Luxe Applicator Mitt. Its double-sided velvet finish helps it to glide seamlessly over the skin, allowing you to apply your favorite self tanner easily, evenly and smoothly.
