Cleaning sensation Mrs Hinch, also known as Sophie Hinchliffe, made a name for herself after posting cleaning tips online. Currently with over four million Instagram followers, the guru is inspiring others with hacks to clean their homes. Now fans of the cleaning enthusiast have taken to creating their own Facebook groups dedicated to sharing.

On one of the groups, with thousands of members, a Facebook user asked for advice on how to get rid of marks and stains around the sink.

Posting a photo highlighting the build up around her sink, the woman said: “Help, how do I get this build up gone? I tried kitchen sprays, bleach, pink stuff.”

The Mrs Hinch fan claimed to have already tried a number of methods to get rid of the stains.

These included using Vikal, Pink Stuff, vinegar and baking soda – but nothing had worked.

Luckily, other cleaning enthusiasts were on hand to provide answers. 

The post was inundated with comments from fellow cleaning fanatics who recommended using a “2p coin” trick.

One user said: “Wet a 2p coin and gently rub it. Sounds stupid but it’s the best and the cheapest thing I’ve ever found to work.”

Another person said: “Definitely wet a 2p! It really does work.”

One person asked whether a 2p coin would scratch their taps.

A user replied: “It won’t scratch.”

Other users suggested using Vikal or white vinegar.

One user said: “White vinegar soaked on some kitchen roll will do the trick.

“Wrap it round your tap, leave it for a bit, go back and when you take the kitchen roll off the limescale has gone soft and can be wiped away.”

Another member commented: “Soak an old rag in vinegar, wrap it around the bit you need cleaned, leave overnight and rinse off.”

Another person suggested: “Bleach won’t remove limescale. Use Vikal.

“Just spray and leave, then rub with a scrubby.”

Another cleaning enthusiast said: “I use it all [Vikal] all the time.

“Spray it on, leave it for 10 minutes and then wipe.”

One person suggested toothpaste and said it “works wonders”.
