A mum has impressed thousands by sharing a quick and easy way to clean a shower screen using four pantry staples.

Dominika, who goes by the username @Washy_Wash on social media, has gained a combined following of 2.2 million by sharing home hacks online. 

In one video watched more than three million times, the UK mum used bicarbonate soda, half a lemon, salt and vinegar to remove the built-up soap scum from her bathroom shower.

In a spray bottle she squirts the white vinegar all over the screen then a few minutes later she spread the bicarbonate soda on top.

Dominika then adds some salt to half a lemon before rubbing it all over the shower surface. 

Together the ingredients create a reaction to remove germs and soap with ease. She then rinsed down the screen to reveal the squeaky clean glass. 

WHAT CAN I CLEAN USING LEMONS? 

1. Rust – Lemons can help remove rust and rust stains from metal and fabrics. Simply rub the patch of rust with lemon before wiping away with a cloth.

If the stain is on fabric and can be moved outside to the sunshine when cleaning this will help.

2. Sweat stains – The annoying yellow marks can be removed with lemon too. Simply rub the effected area with a lemon before letting it sit over night and then pop it in the wash.

3. Lemon is also a natural bleaching agent – so putting some in the wash with your whites is a great way to have them looking and smelling fresh. 

Many praised Dominika for sharing her advice and were enticed to try it themselves. 

‘No way! I legit get so mad at water marks, I will try this,’ one person wrote. 

‘I like the lemon idea. I have a lemon tree so I will use the ones that fall,’ another said, a third added: ‘This is great.’ 

But not everyone was onboard.

‘Or just use Windex,’ one wrote, another said: ‘I don’t know what’s wrong with buying streak-free solution from the store.’

Using Dominika’s method would be ideal for those who want to avoid using harsh chemicals at home.
