A MUM who asked for help getting rid of sweat smells and stains from her son's school shirts has thanked cleaning fans for suggesting bicarbonate of soda.

Karen Tse took to the Mrs Hinch Cleaning Tips group on Facebook to ask people for their tips, as she wrote: "I’ve washed my sons schools shirts and just brought them in off the line and am ironing them, but all I can smell is B-O coming from them.

"Any ideas on how I can get rid of the smell I can’t send him to school with them smelling.

"They don’t smell too bad when the heat from the iron has cooled down but I know it is there.

"Any tips gratefully received."

"Bicarbonate of soda on the pits," one person suggested.
