‘I swear by it’: Mrs Hinch fans share ‘easy’ 50p hack to remove yellow pillow stains


Mrs Hinch fans often share cleaning hacks on dedicated social media pages, including tips on how to get rid of yellow pillow stains. Posting on the Mrs Hinch Cleaning Tips Facebook page, Cliffy Kay wrote: “My pillows have gone a yellowy colour. What do I do to get them white again? They are only two years old and I paid quite a lot for them.”

Pillows often turn yellow because of sweat which seeps through the pillowcase.

Other reasons include falling asleep with wet hair, wearing lotions on the face as well as general moisture.

This often occurs more during the summer months when the weather is warm.

Sharing advice in the comments, fans recommended soaking the pillows to try and remove the stains.
