Woman shares genius hack to get sweat stains out of white clothing
Our whites often lose their pristine looks quickly.
From food to dust, stains gather without much effort but some are more stubborn than others to disappear.
If you own white T-shirts, dresses or shirts, you will know that dreaded sweat stains are some of the hardest to remove.
Well-loved items are some of the worst culprits but one woman has shared her genius hack to have your whites looking as good as new.
Taking to TikTok, Chantel Mila shared her simple tip to rid your clothes of unsightly sweat forever.
In a video that has now been viewed over 109,000 times, the mum of two uses a product that can be found in houses across the country.
The magic household item in question? Denture tablets.
In the video, Chantel shows viewers a before clip of some white T-shirts dotted in sweat marks.
She then proceeds to put the T-shirts into a bucket and tells viewers to ‘soak in warm water + two denture tablets’ for half an hour.
Her final step is to wash the clothing as you usually would in your machine and voilá, your white T-shirts look fresh and revived.
Chantel explains the science behind denture tablets saying: ‘Denture tablets have whitening properties and break down stains on white clothes.’
Sometimes we forget about the cleaning capabilities of household products but Chantel has shared a range of other hacks on her page.
One of our favourites includes using baby oil to help with kitchen cleaning. Chantel says to buff baby oil on your sink to keep it looking shiny for longer and to also use on stainless steel appliances to polish.
However, the uses for baby oil don’t stop there. If you are having some bother with knotted necklaces, Chantel says to apply some oil to make the untangling process easier.
And you know those pesky grey marks and scratches that gather on the inside of cups and bowls? They can be removed. The solution? Bicarbonate soda.
In another clip, Chantel shares her top cleaning hacks to change the way you clean your bathroom forever.
She advises viewers to add three drops of essential oils to the inside of toilet roll to keep the bathroom smelling lovely. However, the best secret is a solution to keep shower doors and mirrors ‘sparkling’.
The TikTok user says to ‘use a mix of white vinegar, dish soap and tea tree oil for a scrub-free, sparkling clean.’
