Chantel first applies shaving cream to the entire stain, then leaves it on for ten minutes.
Then she scrubs against the stain with a brush or cloth in a circular motion. She then says, “You can see the stain diminishing immediately.”
She then washes the garment in the washing machine as usual and the stain is completely gone.
The hack was popular, with many thanking her for posting it and some sharing their own methods for getting rid of stubborn stains.
“That’s so good,” said one woman. “I also make a paste with baking soda and lemon and apply it gently.”
Another said: “You are absolutely a superhero. I have so many makeup stains on my lightweight clothes without knowing how to remove them – until now!”
Chantel also shared the formula for a DIY spray that removes sweat stains from clothes in just 10 minutes.
She uses a mixture of hydrogen peroxide and dish soap to easily remove sweat stains from clothing.
“This is the easiest way to permanently remove armpit deodorant stains,” she captioned her video.
Chantel mixes two parts hydrogen peroxide with one part dish soap to create the magical spray.
Then she puts the mixture in a bottle and sprays it onto the stained clothes and lets it sit for ten minutes.
“The powerful mixture will remove the stain instantly,” she said.
She then simply washes the laundry as usual.
While the trick is typically used on white clothing, Chantel said 3% hydrogen peroxide and a shorter soak time should work well on dark-colored clothing.
However, she still recommends patch testing beforehand, as different materials may respond differently to the DIY mix.
