Then she placed the shirt in the washing machine with half a cup of baking soda in the barrel and white vinegar in the rinse cycle.

It’s essential to wash the t-shirt on a hot cycle to remove the stain from the fabric, and Carolina said the wash can be repeated if necessary.

‘This should get you out of trouble,’ she wrote, revealing that the ink had been removed from the T-shirt.

Within 24 hours of sharing the cleaning hack, the video was viewed over 29,000 times and wowed TikTok users.

‘I’m going to try this today,’ one person wrote in the comments and others tagged friends.

The alcohol in the hand sanitizer is thought to easily lift the ink, and combining it with the natural products is the best combination.

Baking soda and vinegar are often used together to kill unwanted bacteria from laundry.

Best Ways To Use Vinegar When Cleaning:

Vinegar is non-toxic and environmentally friendly, making it the ultimate multi-purpose cleaning solution

It’s a great cleaner and sanitizer because it’s made from acetic acid

Acetic acid is a colorless organic compound that gives vinegar its sour taste and pungent smell

Vinegar can be used to:

  • Glass
  • Countertops
  • Shower and bathtubs
  • Toilets
  • Floors
  • Dishwashers, ovens and microwaves
  • Laundry
