Sunscreen / sunblock stains on fabric

Does anyone know how to lessen the orange stains that sunscreen leaves on fabric? The bottles warn you that it might stain, and it sure did - but I'm hoping there's a way to lighten them. Thanks!

RE: Sunscreen / sunblock stains on fabric

I don't believe you posted this - I was going to! My husband ruined 6 white polos (he wears them to work every day) with Coppertone Sport, I didn't see the stains until I had washed and dried them. Almost $200.00 worth of shirts ruined in a week.

I hope someone can help us.
