Plumbers react in horror to woman’s 4p loo cleaning ‘hack’ – saying she could be wrecking the pipes for good | The Sun

A CLEANING fan has shared the unusual ‘hack’ she uses to keep her toilet fresh and clean.

But people are saying its a huge mistake and it’s left plumbers horrified.

Cleaning fan Anne Caserta shared her strange 'hack' in a TikTok video online. 

The mum claims she has been using the 'hack' for years in every toilet she has had.

She said: “Toothpaste goes in all my toilet bowls.”

She argues doing this helps prevent mineral build up in her toilet and helps against hard water.

She said: “Just cut the ends and then take a little pin and stab,stab, stab, stab.”
