GETTING a tough to shift stain on your clothes is annoying, particularly when it won't come out in the washing machine.
But now a laundry expert shared his pro hack for getting rid of even the "toughest" stains, even including nail polish stains and chewing gum.
Deyan Dimitrov, CEO of Laundryheap, insisted that with his tips there's no need to throw the garments away.
Speaking to Daily Express, he said: “Soak the garment in lemon juice and use the blunt edge of a knife to scrape away excess gum.

“Alternatively, for dark coloured items, if you fancy trying a different condiment to combat gum, you can also use mayonnaise. Massage a dollop of mayonnaise into the item of clothing, and the gum should simply peel off.”
