We’ve all done it! Put on a load of washing only to later lift the lid and discover a tissue was left in someone’s pocket.

Stress no more! Next time you are faced with the impossible task of removing all those tiny white flakes attached to your clothing, grab an aspirin.

tissue wash

Yep, that’s all you need. Depending on how bad the situation is, you can either do another wash cycle, adding four aspirin to the wash or  if necessary soak the items in a bucket with the aspirin and hang them on the line to dry.

Alternately I have been guilty of just tossing the lot in the clothes dryer and they come out tissue free. Easy peasy.

  • What a great laundry hack…..I will definitely try that one. In the past I just put them in the dryer and that takes the fluff off.


  • My husband does this to me at least once a week!!! I put the clothes through the dryer and the lint filter catches it all for me.


  • what does the asprin do?
    On a side note, my sister left a disposable nappy in the wash! I think the gel couldn’t be removed


  • I hate it when this happens as l forget to clean the pockets before washing! So annoying!!


  • Oh so many times I’ve had a tissue go through the wash. We don’t have a clothes drier, so I’m thrilled to find such an easy and quick fix. Just have to buy aspirin now


  • thanks for sharing


  • Great tips thank you. I work at a hospital and inevitably someone will leave a tissue in their clothes when I do the washing. Now I won’t have to spend ages trying to pull the bits of tissue off


  • Ah, good to know, thank you.


  • Aspirin? I imagine that was for the headache that comes with this happening – usually if my hubby puts a load of washing on!! I’ve banned him now. I always have aspirin in the house for migrains so this would be an easy fix. Great tip!


  • Asprin, wow, who would have thought. Will try that next time.


  • I would never have thought to use aspirin, but I will remember this because it is such hard work to clean it other ways


  • Interesting tip !
    After the heart operation of my youngest I still have a load of aspirin at home. Looks like I finally have a good use for it :)


  • dryer all the way!


  • Thanks for the tip. It will really help me to remove tissue which my husband usually left in his pocket and I washed out most of time with clothes.


  • I am guilty of putting them in the dryer or washing them again. I have never heard about adding asprin. I might have to invest in some.
