A CLEANING expert has revealed how to get rid of gross yellow stains on your pillows for just 65p.
The yellow stains come from sweat seeping through the pillowcase onto the pillow beneath.
Other potential culprits behind the stains include greasy or wet hair, makeup and drool.
Lifehacker's pro cleaner said: "Putting a waterproof pillow protector on before your pillowcase can help prevent a lot of discolouration."
But a cheap hack using a 65p kitchen cupboard ingredient can also help get rid of the stains.
The expert said: "You can start off by spot treating the stains with either a store-bought stain removal spray or cream or with a paste made out of a mixture of baking soda and water."

Whether or not they have any stains, you should wash your pillows at least twice a year.
Lifehacker said: "The more someone sweats, the more that moisture seeps through the pillowcase and onto your pillow, causing the stains.
In addition to sweat, your hair may be the culprit: Specifically if it's particularly oily, or you often go to bed with wet or damp hair.
"Some types of makeup and skincare products can also be behind the yellow stains. It could also be drool."
It comes after a lingerie expert revealed how many times you can wear your bra without washing it – and it's less than you'd think.
