Sometimes, try as we might, there are some stains that just won't budge - no matter what products we use.
But one woman who felt she had tried everything to remove an orange mark on her son's T-shirt, opted for a more natural approach - and it worked a treat!
Chelsey Whiston, 27, from Lancashire, had tried everything to remove a stain from her son's Toy Story top. But when none of her products work, the mum came across a tip on Facebook, encouraging her to use sunlight to remove the stain.
"I came across the sunlight stain remover tip when I posted for help on Facebook," explained Chelsey.
"My son had spilt his ice lolly down his top and I'd tried everything, but nothing removed it. A few people said try sunlight as they heard it removed stains.
"I tried it thinking it really wouldn't work. I washed it, put it on the washing line wet and left it to dry. When I went to get it the stain had actually come out!
"I was very surprised and now do this with all the clothes the kids stain. I washed the top then hung it out to dry.
"If you see it's just faded and the stain hasn't 100 per cent gone, just try again and hang it back out in the sun.
"For deep stains like grass stains, I have since done this and it's worked!"
Speaking to Latestdeals.co.uk, Chelsey explained the best part was it didn't cost a penny.
"It has saved me money not only in cleaning products but in replacing the clothes," she added. "I would highly recommend it!"
So how does it work?!
Well, sunlight is a natural bleach - after all, haven't you noticed your hair turning lighter after a holiday?! Or, that ornament that's been sitting by the window for years that now looks a slightly faded colour?!
It's all thanks to its UV rays, which break down the chemical bonds and causes the items to fade. And ever since Chelsey posted on Facebook, others have been going wild for the hack.
One wrote: "The sunlight has never failed me."
While another said: "Yep, an orangey stain comes straight out with sunlight! It's magic!"
We're defo keeping this in mind for next time we encounter a stubborn stain...
