In a recent TikTok video, Australian blogger Chantel Mila revealed that she soaks clothes in dissolvable prosthetic tablets to remove all traces of sweat and dirty stains.
The Melbourne mother, who posts online as ‘Mama Mila’, also adds half a cup of baking soda to her wash to naturally brighten clothes and mixes two drops of eucalyptus oil with laundry detergent for ‘extra stain-removing power’.

The tips, which have been viewed 18,900 times since they were uploaded online on Wednesday, sparked dozens of comments from viewers suggesting their own tips.
One woman said she washes whites with ice cold water on a one-hour cycle and adds a drop of fabric softener towards the end.
“Super clean and fresh,” she added.
Others thanked Chantel for sharing her tricks and said they couldn’t wait to try the prosthetic tablets for themselves.

It’s not the first time the house goddess has introduced fans to her laundry hacks.
Earlier this year, Chantel revealed that she keeps her clothes in perfect condition by fastening buttons and zippers before washing and turning items inside out to prevent stretching and fraying around the hems.
Instead of pouring fabric softener over her laundry, she said she tops it with half a cup of white vinegar, which keeps the detergent from building up on clothes and makes the fabric smell soft and fresh.

‘[White vinegar] is especially great for musty gym clothes, towels, and bedding,” she said.
For dirty clothes, Chantel said she applies a few drops of eucalyptus oil and baking soda as a chemical-free “stain remover before washing.”
She also adds a half cup of sodium bicarbonate to whitewash to maintain whiteness and reduce yellowing and other discoloration.
Chantel’s last tip concerns the washing machine itself, which she says needs to be kept perfectly clean if you want to keep clothes in good condition.
