Mrs Hinch fans go wild over a 95p hack to remove stubborn mould from your washing machine – & it's completely effortless | The Sun

FANS of Mrs Hinch have shared their top recommendations for banishing gross mould from your washing machine.

Due the high level of moisture, the drawers of your washing machine are most probably covered in stubborn mould – and not only does this make for an unsightly discovery but the fungus is also dangerous to those with respiratory issues.

Fed up of the dire state of her appliance, one fan of the cleaning sensation Mrs Hinch took to Facebook to seek help.

Sharing a snap of her washing machine, Louise Geddis-Regan wrote: “This is behind our washing machine drawer, can anyone suggest where to even begin?”

The post, uploaded on the popular Mrs Hinch Cleaning Tipspage, received dozens of comments and recommendations from fellow cleaning enthusiasts.

The most common solution, it turns out, is using Astonish Mould and Mildew Blaster.

The miracle cleaning product can be purchased for as little as 95p from Wilko or a quid from Poundland.

According to the packaging, the spraying product "blasts away mould and mildew stains in minutes without the need for scrubbing."

To banish the nasty fungus, spray Astonish Mould and Mildew Blaster onto the surface and let it work its magic for three to four minutes.

Once the time's up, use a clean, damp cloth to wipe down the surface and rinse it off with clean water.

For those on the lookout for other methods, numerous members of the group suggested different cleaning hacks.

Lorna Winstanley revealed: “I use bicarbonate of soda and clear vinegar mixed up in a spray bottle, leave it for about half an hour.

“Then I use an old bottle brush to scrub it. Generally it cleans really well.”
