With the cost of living crisis showing no signs of letting up and inflation at a 40-year high, it's of the utmost importance to save money when you can.

This brilliant £5 cleaning hack is on hand to do just that, and it promises to leave your bathroom sparkling without breaking the bank. Watch below:


The hack was shared to TikTok by user @carolina.mccauley, who explained that you can have the bathroom of your dreams for a modest price - and it will only take you five minutes.

All you need for this handy hack is a a dish wand.

You simply fill it with washing up liquid and vinegar and get cleaning.

"It removes hard water stains and makes everything shiny again," she explained.

The handy trick did not go unnoticed after it was shared on TikTok, and at the time of writing it has had almost 60K likes.

"Have done this for years," wrote one viewer. "Works a treat, I don't use vinegar though."

A second advised: "maybe sure you have a non scratch green sponge. some green ones are known to scratch glass, metal faucets etc [sic]."

"Be sure to open the window because the vinegar+dish soap combo has pretty strong fumes that’s bad for your lungs," a third similarly elaborated.

"So simple but so effective," wrote a fourth viewer, while a fifth added: "Oh my god! Genius! It worked!!!"

It comes after another hack was recently shared that reportedly gets your shower looking as good as new for minimal cost.

The hack was suggested on the Facebook group Mums Who Clean.

A user named Gemma shared a snap of her spotless shower with the caption: "Whoever suggested dishwasher tablets to clean your shower is a legend.

She added: "Never in my life have I been able to clean a shower with such ease."

Gemma said that all it took to achieve the results above was 'three Fairy dishwasher tablets'.

She wrote: "I literally just made sure the shower was wet, used a tiny bit of water on the tablet to soften it, then wiped over with the tablet."

Reacting to the hack, another Facebook user elaborated: "My sister-in-law melts the tablets in hot water and makes a paste. Easy to smear over the shower."

However, while social media users agreed that the hack is effective, they did warn that your shower can get very slippery, so please be careful if you try it out.

What do you think of these hacks? Will you be giving either of them a whirl?
