‘Genius’ cleaning hack puts fabric softener in reed diffusers for lovely smell

A Mrs Hinch fan has shared her cleaning hack using an old bottle of reed diffuser and fabric conditioner to create an economic way to make your home smell amazing.

In a video, TikTok user @nic0075 shows how she repurposes an old reed diffuser that has run out of its scented oils.

Rather than just chuck it out, she lifts off the top and fills it with her favourite fabric conditioner – Lenor's Sparkling Bloom and Yellow Poppy.

She then dilutes the capfuls of conditioner with a bit of water, reinserts the reed diffusers, and pops it back on the windowsill to release a steady wave of perfume.

The TikTok user captioned it with "keep your empty diffusers" and tagged "hinch", indicating she was a fan of cleaning guru and Instagram influencer Mrs Hinch, real name Sophie Hinchcliffe.

Since it was uploaded, lots of people have commended the idea and said they'd try it out for themselves.

One person gushed: "This is genius."

"This is a clever idea," enthused another person.

Other people said it also works if you use the disinfectant Zoflora and another person said: "Baby oil and essential oils work too."

Some people snubbed the idea, with one person claiming: "That’s not going to work. It needs oil and a carrier."

"It will go mouldy soon though," said another dismissive viewer.

But the TikTok user behind the hack hit back and said she’d had the sticks in the fabric conditioner for weeks without a hint of mould forming.

This comes after a pro-cleaner revealed there's a secret part of the shower you probably forget to clean – and it can get really disgusting.

And a woman showed how you can get the dishwasher looking brand new again with a clever two-ingredient cleaning hack you can probably make at home.
