A Melbourne mum-of-two has gone viral on TikTok for sharing an incredible cleaning hack.

Chantel Mila shared her genius tip on how to get sweat stains out of white clothing, making them look brand new. Her instructions were simple, and involved a cleaning product you wouldn’t usually use in the laundry.

Showing the ‘before’ image of a dull, sweat stained white t-shirt, she then shared her secret weapon. Alongside a video of the t-shirt soaking, she wrote: “Soak in warm water and two denture tablets for half an hour.”

Her next step was to wash the item of clothing as usual, and she let her followers know why the denture tablets work so well.

“Denture tablets have whitening properties and break down stains on white clothes,” she explained.

The ‘after’ video of the white t-shirt shows it looking brand new, bright and stain free.

Her followers went crazy for this hack on TikTok, with one writing: “OMG I’M SHOOKETH! Can’t wait to give it a try myself.”

“How did I not know this before?” another follower asked.

“So does aspirin, throw two in there and voila,” a helpful person added.

Some of Chantel’s followers even gave their own tips on other uses for denture tablets.

“Good tip. Tablets are good in a toilet as well,” a person noted.

“Also takes coffee stains out of metal coffee tumblers,” said another.

The cleaning and organisation guru shares many videos about her cleaning hacks, and this isn’t the first time she’s used an unusual cleaning product.

A TikTok she shared recently showed how to get stubborn red wine stains off white clothing by using shaving cream.

“Combat read wine stains with shaving cream,” she began, as she worked the shaving cream in with a spoon.

After letting it sit for fifteen minutes and putting it through a regular wash cycle, the TikTok star revealed a stain-free, pristine item.
