We all know the feeling: you put on your fake tan in a rush only to check it hours later and notice you're covered in streaks.
Well, fear not. Now, one tan fanatic has revealed her super-easy hack which she claims will remove unwanted fake tan in just five minutes.
Twitter user Lauren Souness went viral as she revealed she uses her Dishmatic dish scrubber to remove product from her skin - with a little help from Bondi Sands Self Tan Eraser too, of course.
While the tan remover costs £14.99 from various makeup and beauty vendors including Boots and Feel Unique, once you've got your hands on that all you'll need is the household scrubber, which can be bought from Tesco for just £1.50.
"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 wrote alongside a snap of the scrubber in her shower.
She then clarified: "Seconds to fill I mean, legit 5 mins to get it off".
The post quickly went viral, racking up 14,4000 'likes' on the platform, and 1,800 retweets.
"OMG best idea ever!," one excited tanner wrote, while another tagged their friend and wrote that the revelation was "life changing".
Speaking to PRETT 52, Lauren elaborated on how she used the scrubber to get the best results.
"You just apply the tan remover in the Dishmatic all over dry skin, leave it for 5 minutes then go in shower it and mostly takes it off," she said. "The Dishmatic helps budge the parts that are tougher to get off.
While some fans were blown away by the idea, others were a little worried that the product - which is meant to be used to scrub grime off plates - might be damaging.
"I couldn't think of anything more painful and damaging to your skin," one wrote.
As another agreed: "These things are like cheese graters. No thank you."
Of course, it all depends how hard you're scrubbing your skin - and if you're using a reliable tan removal product it should do most of the work for you.
Lauren added that it was also important to use the white sponge rather than the green, (both are provided with the scrubber) as this is softer.
Whatever you think of the unusual method, you've got to admire her inventiveness...
