TikTok user Amelia Mandeville shared her clever hack online where it has since gone viral.

In the video, Amelia fills up a mug with Comfort fabric softener, although any brand will do, and pours the liquid into the tank of her toilet.

She then says to leave the liquid in the cistern for at least five minutes to mix with the rest of the water in the tank.

Coming back to the toilet a few minutes later, she raves that “it smells so good” because the water in the tank – which contains the fabric softener – flushes into the bowl.

The video, which has been viewed 1.4 million times on TikTok, received a flurry of comments and even had one follower Ashlea Kemp trialling out the hack alongside her clip.

“This a great idea,” one follower penned.

A second wrote: “This is amazing, never would have thought of this. Definitely going to try it.”

“OMG this is amazing idea!!!! Nothing helps me after my husband use the toilet” (sic).

Originally the hack was shared online in January on Instagram when one American user advised “pouring a cup [230ml] of laundry detergent in the tank of the toilet” which sinks to the bottom.

However, members of the Mrs Hinch Made Me Do It group aren’t so convinced.

One responded: “You can see the mess it leaves in the washing machine drawer – it will definitely clog. It’s a no from me.”

Describing how it might create bubbles, another added: “You will definitely be calling a plumber and they can be expensive! Stick to products that should be used for the loo.”

“I’m definitely not doing this,” a third wrote. “It will definitely stick somewhere in the drainage – look at what it does to your washing machine drawer.”
