Learn how to remove sand from the most common places, like hands, feet and beach accessories, so it stays where it’s supposed to — at the beach.
Getting sand out of your family’s bathing suits can be incredibly tedious. If possible, the whole family should rinse off in clean water at an outdoor shower to remove excess sand. This trick will get most of the sand off everyone’s bodies, so you’ll only have a bit to remove from their bathing suits at home.
When you get home, the first thing to do is to go outside and shake as much sand out as you can. Then, leave the suit to fully dry in the sun. Once dry, give it another good shake. Finally, rinse or soak your swimsuits in cold water for a minimum of 10 minutes. Like towels, the sand in your suit should come away from the fibers and sink to the bottom, making for easy cleanup. Avoid tossing sandy suits in the washer and dryer.
