Mum's simple hack gets tissue off clothes which have been in the wash after her husband dumps a whole BOX in the machine

WE all know the dreaded feeling when we spot a shredded tissue after it's been through the wash with our clean clothes

What's more frustrating though, is trying to get the items clean again and fluff-free- something which proves difficult time and time again.

But one mum reckons she's found the answer to the common problem after her husband dropped an entire box of tissues in the machine.

Naturally, the clean clothes weren't so clean by the end of the cycle and were completely covered in white fluff.

Not knowing what to do, the Australian mum took to Facebook to ask for advice after trying every "hack" on the internet.

The mum tried some of the tips people had recommended, but with no success.

That is until she tried aspirin, the pain-relief medicine, which worked beautifully, eliminating about "70% of the tissue", she said.

"The clothes have been saved," announced the mum.

She explained that she split the load in two, added eight aspirin tablets to each, as well as a cup of vinegar, and washed the clothes again.

Any remaining fluff was easily removed after putting the clothes in the tumble dryer, although she had to "clean the filter every 15 minutes" until the tissue was gone.

The mum's original post racked up hundreds of comments, with many joking that her partner's mishap would get him "out of doing laundry forever".

How to remove tissue from clothes which had gone through the wash

Step 1 – Shake the clothes well to remove the large chunks

Step 2 – Put the clothes back into the wash with "at least" four aspirin tablets for a small load

Step 3 – Add a cup of vinegar to the load and wash on a warm cycle

Step 4 – If there is any tissue left on the clothes put them in the tumble dryer

Step 5 – Clear the filter every 15 minutes until the clothes are tissue-free 

But the mum insisted that she's "not showing my husband this" because she reckons he'll do it again "just to get out of doing the washing" – something she won't allow.

"Still trying to work out how your husband managed to wash a whole box of tissues," one woman said.

The mum explained how the tissues live in the cupboard above the washing machine, so they could have easily fallen in.

"Just to stick up for my poor husband, he is actually really good at doing the laundry, I barely have to touch it," she said. "But this was out of both of our leagues."

Aspirin apparently works by dissolving the tissues without damaging clothing – and it's a trick many cleaners swear by.

Bicarbonate of soda also works well, according to home makers, because it foams up in the wash which breaks through the tissue. 

The pain-relief medication can also be used to remove sweat stains from clothes – simply crush them and mix with water before applying to the area.

Meanwhile, paracetamol tables are great for removing burn marks on irons too, with this dad showing off the incredible hack.

Plus this mum’s simple trick stops bedsheets getting tangled in the dryer – all you need is some tennis balls.

And cleaning fanatics are using ICE CUBES to get crease-free clothes and reckon it lets them ditch the iron for good.
