“Put two cable ties together and cut diagonal slits on each side of the tie, and hey ho job done.”

The post, which has over 116 comments, was flooded with shocked fans who loved the cleaning hack.
One cleaning fan commented: “I will have to try this. I have a blocked bathroom sink and struggling to unblock it. Thank you so much for the tip,” while another said: “Omg thank you so much for this.”
Another cleaning fanatic said: “I tried it today on my bathroom sink thinking nothing would come up…but gave it a go and omg the hair that came up thanks for this tip you have probably prevented a blocked sink.”
Over time the build up of wet hair in your plughole can cause gunk to accumulate and in time this will reduce your water flow.
She pouts an ample amount of soda crystals into the drink before pouring white vinegar on the top.
Both of these products can be purchased cheaply and are even products you may already have in your home.
After about 15 minutes, the cleaning guru then pours boiling water over the plug hole which helps wash away all the remains of soda crystals.
To this, Mrs Hinch will add a capful of her favourite Zoflora scent which disinfects the sink.
She will also spray the sink with diluted Zoflora to clean the basin.
