A SAVVY homeowner and cleaning guru has shared a simple no-scrub trick that will keep your restroom spotless and free of bad smells.
Scrubbing the toilet is one of the most unpleasant household chores that most of us avoid like the plague – but what if there was a way to do it less frequently?
While there are plenty of products on the market, one owner has shared an even better way to avoid limescale and unpleasant odors – and you won’t have to touch the bowl at all, The Express reports.
The awesome cleaning hack requires one basic ingredient – and it’s probably already sitting in your bathroom.
According to the prodigy, who calls himself “quick and easy” on YouTube, all you need is white toothpaste with baking soda as the active ingredient.
In the viral videothe woman grabbed a needle and began to poke small holes in the red Colgate tube.
After the holes were punched all over the packaging, the cleaning guru removed the film covering the toothpaste lid and replaced the cap.
Armed with a pair of scissors, the next step is to cut a small section off the corner of the end of the tube – this will expose the paste.
After preparing the tube for the genius trick, remove the lid from your toilet tank and place the tube in the bottom of the basin.
Sharing the tip, the YouTuber explained that toothpaste cleans naturally.
She said: “The toothpaste is antibacterial in addition to providing freshness and removing yellow stains.”
Although it may seem impossible for the product to come out without the tube being squeezed by hand, the prodigy claimed that the water pressure is enough to do so every time the toilet is flushed.

The Account Owner pointed out that the pressure pushes the paste into the tank which is then flushed into the bowl.
When this happens, the essence of mint is “gradually released” into the water, filling the room with a fresh scent.
The baking soda-infused toothpaste is also said to leave the porcelain surface free of coarse stains and stubborn limescale residue.
According to the cleaning enthusiast, a tube should last a month before needing to be replaced.
