Keeping spray tan tent clean between mobile appointments?

Hello everyone!

The only problem I have had doing mobile spray tans is, once cleaning my tent at the end of the first appointment, it still looks horribly dirty when I open it at the next appointment even though I've washed it. It's really quite embarrassing and I feel less professional because they must think I don't clean it! I always apologise and say I have only just cleaned it 15 minutes ago! I usually use my gun and fill it with warm water and spray the inside of the tent and dry with kitchen roll.

Does anyone have any hacks?

Thanks :)

Is this a Black tent as they usually look okay for several sprays? Dare I ask what solution you are using as some solutions do leave a film on the tents....hope it not ours!!

I have a black tent and only clean it fully once a month outside with a hose. I always put a towel on the floor of tent for people to stand on, this stops the bottom getting dirty and i rub the window bits with a piece of couch roll at the end of every day. It doesn't really get to bad. What part of your tent is getting really dirty? xx

Hi, yes I do this too but I was hoping for more responses for mobile appointments when I go from house to house. I clean after every appointment then get to the next house and it looks as though I haven't cleaned it. It's the clear bit at the top that looks bad X

I don't clean inbetween appointments as it doesn't look dirty. Is your gun turned to high? It seems strange that it would look that dirty so quick xx

You should only be using around 50ml per client xx

RESOLVED - Thanks ladies. Looks like my gun was turned too high (must have had a knock by something in my bag as it has never been too high before). I hadn't noticed. Tent looks much more clean in between appointments now and not using so much solution :)

I use LA solution and after every spray I use anti bac spray and kitchen roll. Give it a good wipe out every time. Mines not even stained
