WE PROBABLY all assumed we were bleaching our toilet the right way, pouring it straight into the basin.
But one cleaning whizz has suggested that we’ve been doing it all wrong.
Mum-of-six Sarah, known online as @sarahelizabeth747, took to social media to share her cleaning hacks – and suggested putting toilet cleaner or bleach under the cistern lid.
In the nine-second video, she can be seen lifting the cistern lid and pouring the cleaning fluid in. Then she flushes, and the water begins to foam.
Sharing the hack with her 2550 followers, she wrote: “Why have I never thought of this until today…”
Fans loved the savvy mum’s trick, with the video gaining more than 18,000 likes.
