‘My husband did our shower screens last weekend and removed years of buildup in our rental that was driving me mad,’ one woman said.
‘I had tried many products and nothing worked until I mixed some gumption with sugar.’
‘This is amazing! I wonder if my husband would kill me if I used his drill for this?’ Said another.
A third added: ‘I would never have thought to do this. Thanks for the heads up!’
It’s important that the sponge is firmly attached to the drill before you put it against the glass screen, to ensure it doesn’t ‘fly off’ when the machine is started.
You also don’t need to apply too much pressure to the glass, which could lead to accidental shattering.
