Mrs Hinch fans share clever way to remove yellow pillow stains and make them look brand new

It's not unusual to notice yellow stains appearing on your pillows after a lengthy period of time, but they can prove difficult to remove.

A number of things cause the unwelcome marks to appear, such as sweat, greasy or wet hair, drool, or even certain skincare and makeup products.

Once you begin to notice stains on your pillows it's best to act quick, and luckily Mrs Hinch's fanbase have just the cleaning trick to help you get rid of the marks.

Fans of the cleaning influencer, whose real name is Sophie Hinchcliffe, regularly take to social media to exchange their most trustworthy household hacks, and recently one person asked for help with their pillows.

The Facebook user asked her fellow cleaning fanatics: "Morning all. I need help to remove yellowing from pillows and pillow protectors, what are your best tips please?"

She was quickly inundated with responses, and one ingredient proved to be the most highly recommended – Napisan.

"Soak in Napisan overniight or at least for a few hours and then wash in the machine. Add more Napisan and usual detergent," one helpful follower wrote.

A second added: "The yellowing is sweat and I found regularly washing and adding Napisan or soaking in it helps."

A third Facebook user also agreed, writing: "Napisan is the way forward, totally effortless way to get brand new pillows again."

Napisan is a germicidal in-wash stain remove with active Oxygen. It removes germs and stains from washing even when at a low temperature. The product is available from most supermarkets.

However, there's also a cheaper alternative as you can create your own pillow stain remover at home, using just two simple ingredients.

By mixing baking soda and water together, you can create your own cleaning spray which helps to remove unwanted marks from pillows.

Another top tip is to buy a waterproof pillow protector, which will prevent moisture to from getting into your pillows in the first instance.

Waterproof pillow protectors are available from most homeware stores, such as Dunelm or John Lewis, and can also help to protect your pillow from dirt and dust.
