Weâ€™ve all had those moments – where we rush to apply fake tan at home in pursuit of a quick DIY glow for an important occasion, only to be left with tell-tale steaks.
Fortunately, a woman called Lauren has come up with a genius solution to help remove orange-coloured mistakes in just five minutes – and it involves using a popularÂ kitchenÂ accessory.
In a post onÂ Twitter, she revealed that she adds Bondi Sands Self Tan Eraser, Â£14.99, to a refillable dish brush – which costs Â£1 from most supermarkets – in the compartment where washing up liquid is normally poured into.
â€œTo all my tanning friends… Bondi sands tan remover in one of these little scrubbers takes your tan off in minutes girls legit seconds!!â€ she explained, alongside a picture of her very affordable streak-removal system.

Lauren added that you should choose a brush with a white – rather than green -scourer on the end as itâ€™s softer when you massage the head onto theÂ skin.
Her post has already received more than 14k â€˜likesâ€™ and hundreds of comments.
One person wrote: â€œSuch a good idea. No more tiger loaf legs.â€
Another commented: â€œWhat an unbelievable idea.â€
A third shared: â€œWho knew a kitchen scrubber is all we needed.â€
And a fourth added: â€œGame changer.â€
However, others were worried that a brush intended for getting grime off pots and plates would be too harsh.
One person suggested: â€œI couldn’t think of anything more painful and damaging to your skin.â€
And another added: â€œThese things are like cheese graters. No thank you.â€
The Bondi Sands Self Tan Eraser is usually designed to be used in conjunction with a flannel and warm water.
â€œBondi Sands revolutionary Self Tan Eraser technology effectively removes self-tan without harmful ingredients and exfoliation in just five minutes,â€ according to theÂ Bondi SandsÂ website.
