Mrs Hinch cleaning fans reveal the 20p hack to remove grim yellow marks on toilets and why you should never use bleach | The Sun

THERE IS nothing worse then lifting the toilet sit lid up only to see it covered in nasty yellow stains.

Fortunately, Mrs Hinch cleaning fans have revealed the 20p cleaning hack to get rid of them – and why you should never use bleach.

Most yellow stains on toilets seats are often a result of limescale, cleaning products, or urine splashed onto the lid when not cleaned regularly.

And Mrs Hinch cleaning fans were quick to share their tips and tricks on what to use to banish them – and what to avoid.

Mrs Hinch's army of cleaning fans have dedicated social media pages to share their own cleaning tips.

In one such group, a woman asked: "How can I clean the yellowing on the underneath of a white toilet seat please?”

A third penned: "Bleach is what makes the plastic go yellow."

Instead, the cleaning fans revealed a 20p solution they call 'the magic paste.'

They advised to mix baking soda and white vinegar together to banish stubborn yellow marks on th eloo.

One wrote: "Form a paste with white vinegar and baking soda. Apply to toilet seat and scrub off with the rough side of a sponge. 

“For stubborn stains leave the paste on for around 10 minutes. Worked wonders for our toilet seat, when even bleach wouldn't take it off. The paste is magic.”

Another suggested: "White vinegar and some baking soda, use to wipe it properly, only if it's not wood though. It works a treat on the plastic ones.”

"Baking soda and white vinegar, mix it into a paste and rub on. Leave for about 30 minutes and it should look fine," a third commented.

Meanwhile, a fourth added: "Try white vinegar and bicarbonate of soda. Leave it to work for 10 minutes before wiping off.”
