You might already use your cleaning pads all around the home – from wiping down surfaces to getting your shower screen shining.

But one woman has found another use for the Minky branded-sponges.

She says it’s great for applying moisturiser or other creams to your skin.

TikTok user Lucy Ecclestone, who posts as @lucyeccelstone94, said: ‘My brother uses a Minky cleaning sponge to apply cream to himself.

‘After laughing at him, I thought I’d try it.

‘I’m not even joking, it’s actually the best thing I’ve ever used. It spreads so easy and you don’t get sticky hands.

‘I’m so shocked. You need to get one.’

She uses the ridged scrubbing side but the sponges are made to me non-scratch so it’s not abrasive.

Although she recommends the Minky brand, there are lots of companies making their own versions of the pads.

The Minky pads cost around £2.50.

If you do want to pick one up for rubbing things on your body, it’s probably a good idea to get one in a different colour or design so you know to keep it separate.

Over 80,000 people have watched the video and others loved the tip.

‘I’m investing in one of these. Hate it on my hands,’ one said.

Another person added: ‘Great idea.’

Some asked if it would work for applying fake tan. Lucy said that although she hadn’t tried that, she thought it would work well and encouraged them to give it a go.
