Kelly wrote: ‘Someone posts a picture of their new curtains in a group on here… so I advised them to put empty toilet rolls in the top to make the pleats look nice
‘Now I’m sat here at quarter to 11 on Friday night taking pictures of my curtains trying to explain to people what I mean. If you ain’t already done the toilet roll trick, do it.’
Social media cleaning sensation Mrs Hinch is among the fans of the hack and has shared it with her followers.
Kelly also shared a snap of how the curtains look when closed, which revealed the pleats still look neater than without use of the rolls
The post was met with thousands of shares as many confessed they were impressed and wanted to try the method themselves
Kelly’s post received thousands of shares, as hundreds commented saying that they will be trying the method for themselves.
‘Omg! Here I am about to save toilet paper rolls. This is genius,’ wrote one.

Other responses to the hack came from those who said they wouldn’t want to be restricted from opening their curtains completely
A third added: ‘How good is that I’m doing that now thanks for the tip x’
Others proved skeptical of the trick, questioning how it could impact the way curtains look when opened.

Another said: ‘I like but what about when you open them oh I don’t know, won’t pull back all the way! Xx.’
