YOU might be an absolute pro at fake tanning – but admit it, it’s almost impossible not to make a mess.
And our trusty tanning mitts always get the brunt of it.

If your fake tan mitts are looking pretty brown and gross, you might want to listen up and get your mitts washed.
Thankfully, one cleaning fan has shared her quick method for getting her mitts looking brand new – and it couldn’t be easier.
One woman named Ami uploaded the video to her TikTok account ‘positivami’ with the caption ‘So gross but I love it’.
In the video we see Ami put her four pretty filthy fake tan mitts into a sink full of water.
She then adds shampoo and leaves them to soak.
And the colour of the water is enough to give you the shivers.
Amy said: “Right when was the last time you cleaned your fake tan mitts because if you’re anything like me, it’s been a while.
“I popped mine in some hot water with some shampoo and even after literally 30 seconds, look at the colour of the water.
“The water is literally completely green, yellow, brown, I don’t even know what that is.
“So I went in for a second soak, just to make sure I got it all out.
“I just repeated the process again, popped them all in with water, shampoo, all that jazz.
“I left them for about an hour this time just to make sure everything was off.
“Again it was still a bit green but once I rinsed them out they came out lovely.”
Looks like we need to give ours a wash after seeing this…
After the video being live for just a day at the time of writing, the video has racked up a whopping 167.8k views.
It has 18.6k likes, 196 comments and 106 shares.
Many TikTok users were seriously grossed out at the colour of the water and were inspired to clean theirs.
One person said: “Okay I’m doing this now.”
Another added: “This video made me decide to go do it and my boyfriend was disgusted in the water at me.”
A third commented: “This is grim I need to do mine.”
However, many TikTok users were shocked that others don’t regularly clean their mitts and said that they cleaned theirs after every use.
One user commented: “Is it just me that washes after every use? I just chuck it in the washing machine with a cleaning cloths load.”
Another said: “I put them in the wash every time I use them.”
A third added: “You don’t put them on a qucik wash on their own?”
