In a last ditch attempt to salvage the tap, Kirsty decided to give the 2p trick a go – and was amazed by the results.
She explained: "Tonight however, I thought I'd give the magic 2p trick. BOOM."

In a post on TikTok, a nurse called Lauren took viewers through how she stripped washes her towels to guarantee their cleanliness.

After filling up her tub, the social media user added the three products.
Finally, she threw in a selection of towels and advised those watching to "stir those suckers up".
After just ten minutes, the water was also super dirty – but Lauren left the towels in, and continued to stir them every couple of hours.
Once seven hours had passed, the water had reached a horrifying brown shade.
She told viewers that it was all "build-up" accumulated on the towels over time.
To finish off, those watching were instructed to re-wash the towels in the washing machine to give them a final spin out.
