One mum revealed that she has a €3.50 hack that might just change your life in the Mrs Hinch Facebook group.

When one member was looking for tips on how to put duvet covers on the bed without getting them all crinkled.

“Lenor crease release. I haven’t ironed in about three years,” one person enthused and she wasn’t the only one who swore by this method.

“Crease release spray. Don’t bother ironing duvet covers, life is too short,” said a second, while a third agreed: “Lenor crease release. I clean holiday lets. If they are really creased I will put them on beds first and then iron them or use a handheld steamer.”

Someone else posted: “I think it’s amazing. I just spray then use the flat of my hand to pull creases out.”
