I'm a cleaning whizz… my easy hack will remove nasty sweat stains from your whites and make them bright again | The Sun

A SAVVY cleaning enthusiast has gone viral after sharing a genius hack for removing yellow sweat stains from your whites.

Almost impossible to wash out, they leave unpleasant marks and make any outfit a fail.

If you've recently found your favourite top covered in these, especially in the armpit area, don't rush to bin it just yet, as one whizz has shared a cleaning hack.

The TikTok user Joanne, who goes b @whatjoknows online, took it to social media to demonstrate how she makes her whites shine bright like new again.

''Saw this on TikTok so thought I'd give it a go,'' said the home interior enthusiast.

She tried the hack on one of her favourite old dresses that was covered in a gross mixture of yellow stains from sweat, deodorant and tanning lotion.

To make it mark-free, Joanne squeezed a small amount of purple shampoo on the affected areas and gave it a hand wash.

Once done, grab a packet of soda crystals and pour a generous layer on the garment before chucking in the washing machine.
