A woman has shared a simple £2 hack to get mould off of your tiles, no scrubbing needed.

It’s never an easy feat to get mould out of a shower cubicle, especially when it loves to fester in warm, damp conditions.

This woman, who posted her findings on a Facebook cleaning group, revealed she’d found the best solution for removing the mould after numerous attempts to find the perfect antidote.

She initially asked for help alongside posting a picture of her mould-lined grouting.

People suggested using toilet cleaner, as well as re-grouting the tiles in a bid to remove the mould that had gathered around her shower basin.

Eventually, the tip that did work was refreshingly simple.

She soaked cotton wool pads in an everyday toilet bleach and lined them along the grouting, leaving it to soak into the mould over night.

In the morning, the results were pretty impressive.

As many cleaning experts will no doubt attest, this isn’t a tip that you can do on a regular basis because it will slowly corrode the grout away from the shower.

However, as a one time tip to get your shower in perfect condition for regular cleaning, it seems to do the trick.

Researchers from the University of Leicester confirmed that just 24 minutes of moderate physical activity in the home, think washing the dishes or giving the living room a quick hoover, is enough to do the trick.

The shower seems like a great place to start.
