I'm a cleaning expert & have a £1 miracle product that helps remove yellow stains from pillows with NO scrubbing needed | The Sun

HAVING clean and crisp sheets boosts your night's sleep and gives you that fresh, relaxed feeling when you climb into bed.

But plenty of us notice some nasty yellow stains on our pillows when we change the sheets.

No matter how thorough you are with your laundry, these marks are hard to avoid and very tough to shift once you get them.

Interiors expert at Secret Linen Store, explained that these marks come from your sweat as you sleep and they're very common.

Speaking to Express.co.uk, she said: "As sweating is natural when you sleep, especially with warmer weather (and even in winter with thick duvets) keeping on top of your pillow’s hygiene with frequent and correct washing of pillows, as well as your bed sheets, can help prevent these yellow stains from occurring.”

But the pro was very clear that you shouldn't use bleach to get rid of the marks on your pillows as it can actually cause more stains as the bleach reacts with chemicals in your sweat.
