We’ve all had those moments - where we rush to apply fake tan at home in pursuit of a quick DIY glow for an important occasion, only to be left with tell-tale steaks.

Fortunately, a woman has come up with a genius solution to help remove orange-coloured mistakes in just five minutes - and it involves using a popular kitchen accessory.

In a post on Twitter, she revealed that she adds Bondi Sands Self Tan Eraser, to a refillable dish brush - which costs as little as $1 from most supermarkets - in the compartment where washing up liquid is normally poured into.

“To all my tanning friends... Bondi sands tan remover in one of these little scrubbers takes your tan off in minutes girls legit seconds!!” she explained, alongside a picture of her very affordable streak-removal system.

Lauren added that you should choose a brush with a white - rather than green -scourer on the end as it’s softer when you massage the head onto the skin.

Her post has already received more than 14k ‘likes’ and hundreds of comments.

“Such a good idea. No more tiger loaf legs,” one person wrote

“Who knew a kitchen scrubber is all we needed,” another said.

However, others were worried a brush intended for getting grime off pots and plates would be too harsh.

“I couldn't think of anything more painful and damaging to your skin,” one person said.

And another added: “These things are like cheese graters. No thank you.”

The Bondi Sands Self Tan Eraser is usually designed to be used in conjunction with a flannel and warm water.

“Bondi Sands revolutionary Self Tan Eraser technology effectively removes self-tan without harmful ingredients and exfoliation in just five minutes,” according to the Bondi Sands website.
