Sick and tired of battling with grimy rings on the collars of your shirts? This simple trick could be all you need to make laundry day less of a chore again…

Collar rings accumulate due to the excess of oil in the area. Not only do you have the sweat and natural oil of your skin, but there are the oils from your hair and skin/hair products too.

With the collar acting as the perfect funnel for dust and dirt during the day, you have a recipe for extra dirt.

Rather than scrubbing the fabric harshly before you wash, simply mix a little shampoo in some warm water.

Apply the mix with a soft brush, work it in well, and then toss the garment in the machine as normal.
