The revolutionary toilet hack that all parents should know

we love 19/02/2019

Mums in the Australian-based Facebook group Mums Who Clean have all been raving about their newest hack when it comes to cleaning in and around the toilet.

The tactic, although messy, is said to be a brilliant way to rid the bathroom from smelling like urine for good.

Hundreds of Mums in the Facebook group shared their pictures of their toilets, tiled walls and floors coated in a thick layer of shaving cream.

Though unproven, many believe the chemical combination of the shaving cream works to destroy the "uric acid crystals" in urine rather than simply masking the smell of them.

"I'd just like to say a huge thank you to the beautiful mum who said to use shaving cream in the toilet to get rid of urine smell. I sprayed it everywhere and rubbed it in went back a few hours later to wipe down and the smell has gone," one mum posted on the site.

"It worked for me and yes I only paid a couple bucks for the stuff best tip ever! Thank you once again."

Another woman explained why she had to cover so much of the bathroom space in the cream.

"Anyone who has a house full of young boys will understand why it's spread far and wide and to all of the grout and corners," she said.

"I'm leaving it on overnight. I hope it does well!"

One social media user explained that you should leave the shaving cream on for a few hours before scrubbing it off.
