Cleaning fans reveal how to remove stains WITHOUT detergent – including clever washing liquid tip & DIY laundry tablet
NOT trying to boast or anything – but since we started following Mrs Hinch three years ago, we've built up our very own "Narnias" full of cleaning products.
But when it comes to removing stains on our family's clothes, it does sometimes feel like we've got all the gear and no idea.
Well instead of having countless products that do a lacklustre job, cleaning fans have revealed how they get rid of stains without any detergent.
From a DIY laundry tablet to a clever washing liquid tip, let's just say we wish we'd known these hacks before splashing out on five different types of stain remover…
Washing Liquid Tip
Earlier this year, the professional dry cleaner who runs the Clean Freakz TikTok account revealed what the care labels on your clothes REALLY mean – and now he's back with another cleaning tip.
As people can't get to their dry cleaners in lockdown, the expert revealed how they can get stubborn stains out at home with washing liquid.
Giving followers a step-by-step guide, he began by pouring oil onto a white t-shirt and marking it with a cross so 91,000 followers knew it was the same top the whole way through.
Next, he mixed warm water and washing liquid – which is designed to cut through grease – in a bowl and poured it over the stain.
He said: "If you're really in a pinch, you can just put dish soap directly on the stain."
Once he'd covered the stain in the soap, he allowed it to sit for 15 minutes before chucking it on a hot wash.
"Make sure you look at it after washing," he added. "In this case, it didn't come out the first time."
But after repeating the process, the white t-shirt looked gleaming white again and he reminded fans to only dry their clothes once their stains have vanished.
DIY Laundry Tablet
Sharing her life hack on TikTok, Australian mum Carolina McCauley revealed how she makes her own detergent out of just a few household items.
She said: "These miracle laundry blocks are my secret to cleaning and caring for white clothing."
To make her laundry tablets, Carolina mixed baking soda, oxygenated bleach, soda crystals with water.
Once it had formed the consistency of wet sand, Carolina put the mixture into a silicone ice cube tray and allowed them to set in a cool, dry place.
Carolina added: "Allow them to dry out so they are complete compact cubes."
The savvy mum stores her DIY tablets in a glass jar in her kitchen and claims their gentle formula has got her whites looking better than ever.
"This miracle block will replace your detergent and stain remover," she said.
How to make the ‘miracle’ laundry tablets
- Mix one cup of baking soda with one cup of soda crystals
- Stir in half a cup of oxygenated bleach
