FANS of cleaning sensation Mrs Hinch have shared hacks to removing blood stains from bed linen using a 27p item you most likely already own.
Whether you’ve had a period mishap or a sudden nosebleed, almost everyone has woken up at least once to find bloodstains on their pillows and sheets.
While many think blood is among the most stubborn of stains, fans of Ms Hinch have claimed there’s a common kitchen item that works like a charm, the Express reported.
Ms Hinch, whose real name is Sophie Hinchliffe, 32, has been a long-time favorite among other cleaning enthusiasts with almost 4.5million followers on Instagram.
The star rose to fame with various home hacks a few years ago, and now her fans have even started their own cleaning pages on social media.
In one such group, Ms. Hinch Cleaning Tips and Tricks on Facebook, one member sought advice: “Help! My little boy stuck his finger in my nose which caused a bloody nosebleed and it went all over my pillow before I could stop it.
“What’s the quickest way to remove blood, please?”
Though there are countless stain removers on the market, Ms Hinch’s fans advised the mum to skip these and instead head to her kitchen to find the perfect solution – salt and cold water.
“Salt and cold water, my mother swears by it. My nephew had a severe nosebleed and it ran all over his shirt,” read one response.
“My mom used salt and water and it came right out.”
Another agreed, writing: “Use cold water with a little salt. I was skeptical at first, but the stain goes away immediately.”
