Hi Renee, I made your recipe for homemade suntan lotion and howdo I clean up bowls, spoons used in mixing after having zinc oxide in it?I can't seem to get items clean, everything is greasy and white and itslike I can't break through and get my mixer paddles clean???Please advise, thank you!
Everything you used to make it needs to get hot to the point of remelting
the mixture. You could use a hair dryer or put it in the oven on a
foil-lined cookie sheet. Once it's hot and melted, use paper towels to
thoroughly wipe off any lotion. You'll then be able to wash your utensils
in very hot, soapy water. Use something like Dawn and a scrub brush to cut
through the wax/oils. If you make it again in the future, as soon as
you've finished blending it, immediately wipe everything with paper towels
to get rid of as much residue as you can before washing by hand.
