Mrs Hinch fans explain cleaning hacks that remove common school uniform stains
Now the kids are back at school, and the shine has worn off, parents will begin to notice school stains.
From grass stains to spaghetti sauce to mud and pen – kids don’t half mess up their uniform.
Cleaning the clothing isn’t as easy as it may seem.
After all, mix the wrong chemicals and you could put yourself in danger.
Luckily, fans of cleaning influencer Mrs Hinch were happy to share their best stain-removing tips and tricks.
What's your most effective cleaning tip? Tell us about it in the comments section…
One mum posted in the Facebook group “Mrs Hinch Cleaning Tips”, and said: “Any suggestions for getting baked bean sauce out of a white school t-shirt?"
Well, we’ve all been there…
The top had apparently only been worn once by her son, and with the price of uniform nobody wants to shell out twice, reports the Express.
Some Hinchers advised that the mum use dish soap, or washing up liquid.
They said to rub the stain with the liquid (preferably lemon as it’s light in colour) and then run it through the machine.
One wrote: "Washing up liquid and wash as normal."
One added: "Rub with Fairy original then spray with elbow grease and into the wash…removes any stains I've had with food etc."
Elbow Grease is a favourite product of Sophie Hinchcliffe.
The all-purpose de-greaser is fab for working on fabrics, metals and plastic.
So it’s useful to keep around the house.
Another person said: "Elbow grease spray leave on for few mins then wash as normal and put in sun to dry for 24hrs.
“In the window is perfect."
The sunlight hack was another common suggestion.
The bright light can have a bleaching effect on clothes – adding lemon juice can help to further whiten the area too.
One said: "Sun light, wash as normal and hang outside the sun will shift it."
"100% sunshine after a normal wash,” added second.

While a third commented: ”Just hang it in the sun. It will be gone in a few hours. No need for anything else at all."
It’s not just bean liquid these hacks can be used for.
Any food-type stain, or grass and mud, will be effectively reduced with some washing up liquid, elbow grease, a wash and some sunlight.
If you want to go all-in then give Vanish Gold Stain Remover, £3.15, a go too.
Ink is a slightly different story – try rubbing alcohol or hairspray for that stain.
