When it comes to stains on the carpet, red wine it pretty much top of the list when it comes to disaster levels.
No matter how hard you scrub, you normally just have to accept that your lovely carpet will always offer a permanent reminder of that Saturday night (or Monday afternoon, we're not judging).
But one mum has come up with a genius hack to get rid of the stains for good – and it involves a very unexpected item.
Posting in the popular cleaning Facebook group Mrs Hinch Made Me Do it, the woman claims The Body Shop's gentle Camomile Cleansing Butter made the stain disappear.
She says the huge stain covered a large part of her floor, reports the Sun .
But after applying the cream and leaving for a few minutes it looked good as new.
She wrote: "Removes wine. Removes makeup. I'm sold!"
The red wine trick is the latest in a long list of tricks being shared on social media after cleaning guru Mrs Hinch inspired everybody to get cleaning.
One mum thought she would have to get rid of her cream sofa after her three-year-old had a creative moment with her lipstick.

Before long she found a post claiming that Morning Fresh washing up liquid, which you can buy in supermarkets from as little as £1, and a lot of elbow grease.
She spend three hours scrubbing and couldn't believe the results.
She said: "I'm still in disbelief and continue to check the couch to see if it was all an illusion.
