But now it seems an all-new obsession is sweeping the country - looking at pics of the dirty water that’s been flushed from your washing machine after doing the hack.
Hundreds are taking to social media and Facebook groups such as Mums Who Clean to share pics of the dirty water snaps, with thousands commenting and liking the various images.
‘Anyone else here for the dirty water pics?’ said one. Added another: ‘All these dirty water pics are grossing me out and thrilling me at the same time!’
Added a third: ‘I have put the dishwashing tablets in and am now watching the dirty water come out into a bucket and it’s so satisfying’
Said another: ‘I’ve been sitting here for 30mins watching ours 🤢 we’ve had our machine 5yrs this year and honestly had no idea about cleaning the inside 🙈 glad I know now though.’
Added one more: ‘Omg jumped on the washing machine clean also and omg it’s gross !! My Miele is only 8 mnths old the water is so gross 🤮 ps I normally wash in cold water and no fabric softener, this is awesome 👏 gross but good 😂 and my machine still works gotta wait 10 mins before it’s finished.’
Said another of her dirty water: ‘So grossed out ... but so excited too!’
Looks like you’re not alone!
