Mum uses fabric softener to brighten up grubby door she had 'forgotten was white' in amazing cleaning hack

GIVING your doors a good clean can often fall to the bottom of the list – until it seems to be too late.

However, a mum has revealed how she used none other than fabric softener to get her grubby ones looking unrecognisable.

In a post on Facebook group 'Mums Who Clean', the Australian woman admitted she hadn't giving her doors a thorough scrubbing for years.

The social media user wrote that they "hadn't [been] cleaned properly since painting the house six years ago".

But by adding fabric softener to a bucket and using a stiff brush, she was able to get them back to their former state.

She explained: "Who would have guessed these doors are actually white. I used fabric softener, a stiff brush and a bit of water in a bucket.

"Scrub like mad, wipe down with damp cloth and repeat."

The mum accompanied the explanation with amazing before and after photos of the door she had been able to transform with the common laundry product.

She added that the reason they had got particularly dirty was due to living in a mining town with dust everywhere.

Another mum in the group also revealed how she used fabric softener to clean her walls.

Who would have guessed these doors are actually white…

The woman explained that she mixed a cap of it with a bucket of warm water to create an effective solution.

She wrote: "Have been reading lots [about] people cleaning their walls with fabric softener to make them smell nice. I gave it a go, and I’m hooked.

"Walls look amazing and it smells so good – every room is like walking through a field of roses. Can’t recommend it enough."

A third woman said she uses shaving foam to clean her toilet and get rid of the smell of urine, adding that she leaves it to soak for 30 minutes before wiping it away with a mop.
