A clever hack built into iPhones helps take care of your clothes.

A TikToker has shared an incredible laundry hack they discovered on their iPhone.

In a video posted last week, user Aleisa Mora revealed that the camera app on an iPhone can tell you how to take care of your clothes and garments.

“You can take a picture of the tags of the clothes and if you have an iPhone, your phone will just tell you exactly how to take care of those clothes, and it’s not an app, it’s just built into the camera app,” said Mora. “I’ll show you how it works.”

In the TikTok, Mora went on to explain that if you snap a photo of the item’s label, your iPhone will explain what each of the laundry symbols printed on the tag means, thanks to a clever built-in feature.

Mora then demonstrated how to use the feature using a picture of a tag on one of her shirts.

As she brought up the photo on her phone’s screen, she explained, “So what you’re going to do is you’re going to press the little i, when it has the little sparkles on it, that's how you know it’s working. Then when you click it, it’s going to bring up ‘Look Up Laundry Care’ so you’re going to click that and when you click it it’s going to bring you to this really cool menu where it just tells you exactly what all of the icons mean and exactly how to take care of your garment.”

Symbols on the tag of Mora’s shirt included the maximum temperature the garment could be washed and ironed at and whether or not it could be used with bleach.

“I say this a lot, but I was definitely born in the right generation because what do you mean a little rectangle in my pocket can take a picture of the tags of my clothes and tell me exactly how to take care of the clothes without downloading an app, it’s just built into the little rectangle,” she concluded the video. “That’s insane to me.”

Mora captioned the video, “I love living in the future.”

Fellow TikTokers were impressed with the discovery, with one writing, “So cool!” while a second added, “You've made my life 100 times better.”

A third wrote, “GAME CHANGED.”
