Everyone will be aware of the annoying sticky residue left behind after you peel stickers off, but not everyone will be aware that mayonnaise will be able to get rid of it!

Lauren had previously seen something online about mayonnaise being a great cleaning product, so decided to give it a whirl for herself.

Lauren's post read: “Whoever shared the tip about mayo removing old stickers, thank you!

“Our previous owners loved to stick things to the window frames!!

“Stuck some mayo on, left for around 30 mins and wiped away!

“There was a tiny faint little mark which I couldn’t leave so wacked some pink stuff on for a few minutes and voila!”

Under the post, many said they couldn't wait to try out the tip themselves.

One said: "This is wild.. defo trying out myself this weekend", with another adding "must try this!!!"
