‘So gross to think this came out of my dish cloths,’ she wrote alongside the disturbing photos in the ‘Mum’s Who Clean’ Facebook group.

She revealed she had just found out about the ‘miracle cleaner’ that can be used to soak towels, tea towels, reusable dish cloths, shoes, socks and cloth floor fibres for mopping.’

‘I’ve just discovered it and it is amazing,’ she said.

before clarifying the cleaning agent is ‘a powder you ad to boiled water’. 

‘This is totally safe and also used to sterilise brewers equipment,’ she said.

It is also much cheaper than popular laundry soakers and can be bought for $4 per kilo.

A Coles product which combines sodium percarbonate with bicarb soda sells for just $2.50 per kilo, making it very affordable.

‘It is awesome for using in DIY non toxic cleaning products like dishwasher powder, carpet powder and so much more,’ she said.

‘The point of this post is the effect using pure sodium percarbonate has. Yes you can use napisan but you’re only getting 280g of sodium percarbonate to every 1kg. This is the same price even cheaper than buying Napisan which is diluted and doesn’t have as good a result,’ she clarified.

While others continued to ask where to get the cleaning product and thank the mum.

‘I have never thought of this, thankyou,’ one wrote.
