An Essex woman has revealed how she mistakenly cleaned her sink with hand soap and the results are pretty stunning.
Emma Ramsey said it works better than anything she tried before, sharing pictures of the shiny results on Facebook group Family Lockdown Tips & Ideas.
She wrote: ‘So, I stumbled upon this completely by accident the other day when washing my hands with anti bacterial hand-wash in the bathroom basin.
‘I quickly washed the basin out smothering it in anti bac hand-wash and noticed how sparkly the taps were and still are!
‘So I put it to test in the kitchen sink and not only does it come out sparkly clean, it also removes rust and limescale!’
Emma went on to explain how she tried different methods to get the taps to gleam again, but nothing comes close to this hand wash hack.
She wrote: ‘I’ve tried brillo pads in the past but got sick of removing metal splinters from my hands and I’ve tried stainless steel cleaner but nothing has worked as well as this!
‘You can buy it for around £1 so it’s cheap and it leaves your hands smelling nice and not half as damaged as actual cleaning products.’
Other people in the group have been impressed by the results, with one saying: ‘Ooh, have to try this, thanks for sharing.’
Another commenter wrote: ‘I discovered this too recently when getting stains out of clothes! I’m now using it to clean everything.’
