Now an Aussie mum has come up with a new twist on the hack to try and get the controversy - and all you need is a simple water bottle.
Sharing on the awesome Mums Who Clean Facebook page, mum Yomna revealed how she mixed fabric softener and water into a small plastic water bottle - half and half - and screwed the lid on tight. She then pierced a series of holes in the top of the lid and placed it inside the water in her toilet’s cistern, meaning the diluted fabric softener can slowly waft into the toilet and create a wonderful fragrance.
Says Yomna: ‘Ladies another trick with the fabric softener for a fresh smelling toilet ...
‘Half water/half softener and the job is done 👍👍👍’
But while some were intrigued by Yomna’s hack, others weren’t convinced.
‘I know it is diluted but would it block the flushing mechanism....’ said one.
However Yomna was standing by her trick. ‘I have been using fabric softener for the last 15 years in my washing machines and have had any prob...🤔🤔’
