An organisation and cleaning guru, Chantel Mila, has shared her secret to getting makeup stains off clothes – and she only uses one household staple
Chantel first applies shaving cream all over the stain and lets it soak in for ten minutes.
After that, she uses a brush or cloth to scrub against the stain in circular motions.
‘You can see the stain reducing instantly,’ she said.
She then merely washes the piece of clothing as per usual in the washing machine and the stain is completely banished.

Chantel also shared the formula for a DIY spray that removes sweat stains from clothes in just ten minutes.
She uses a mixture of hydrogen peroxide and dishwashing liquid to easily lift perspiration stains from clothes.
‘This is the easiest way to remove underarm deodorant stains for good,’ she captioned her viral TikTok.
Chantel mixes in two parts of hydrogen peroxide with one part of dishwashing liquid in order to create the spray.
She then pours the mixture into a bottle and sprays it on the stained clothes, leaving it to soak for ten minutes.
‘The powerful mixture will lift the stain right off,’ she said.

She then washes the clothes in a washing machine as per usual.
While the trick is usually used on white clothes, Chantel said 3% hydrogen peroxide and a shorter soak time should work fine on dark clothes.
However, she still recommends patch testing beforehand as different materials might react differently to the DIY mixture.
