Well, there just might be an effective way for you to remove the tissue pulp with as little hassle as possible

SoraNews24 translated a Japanese Twitter thread by Yukino (@54l23) who revealed a trick on how to remove tissue bits accidentally put into the laundry.

According to her, all you need to do is to add fabric softener into your wash, run the rinse and spin cycle again, and everything will come out clean – without any tissue pulp!

Yukino explained that the reason for this is that tissue paper and fabric tend to cling together because of their opposing electrical charges.

Using fabric softener can break that bond and cause the tissue to slide off the clothes as they are rinsed.

She shared before and after photos of the method – and they look pretty impressive
