Cleaning: Mrs Hinch fans share a 39p tip for cleaning stains from sinks.

A 39p technique for removing stains from sinks has been shared by cleaning enthusiasts. Tea and coffee can discolor sinks over time, but Mrs Hinch followers claim that her technique “works every time.”

Mrs Hinch, whose real name is Sophie Hinchliffe, rose to fame after offering housekeeping tips and advice on social media and television. On Instagram, the cleaning aficionado has amassed over 4.1 million followers. Her devotees have already formed their own social media groups dedicated to cleaning and organizing advice.

A cleaning fanatic asked in one of the forums how she can get the stains out of her sink.

She posted a photo of her stainless steel sink, which had darkened with age.

“I just moved in, and my sink appears to be discolored brown,” she explained.

“Do you have any ideas how I can get it back to a gleaming silver?”

The post received nearly 500 replies from cleaning enthusiasts, with bleach being the most popular solution.

“Thin bleach, works every time for me,” one person commented.

“All you have to do is pour some into the sink and plug it in, and watch it remove the stain away.

“Rinse quickly with cold water and a towel. “Job well done.”

“Bleach used neat,” said another user. Leave for an hour after rubbing with a sponge.”

Tesco has bleach and disinfectant for 39p up here.

“Bleach and a metal scourer – it’s tea stains,” wrote a third.

“Bleach on a scourer, then rub it away with boiling water,” said a fourth.

Another suggestion was to use bleach but to wash the plugs in the dishwasher.

“Bleach or Viakal,” said another. Scrub on, wait a few minutes, and then wash off.”

“Bleach the whole thing and it will be silver again,” another social media user suggested.

“I utilize it on a regular basis. I have the same sink as you.”

One user, however, advised against using bleach, claiming that it would stain the sink “much more.”

They advised against using bleach since it will discolor the carpet much worse in the future.

“Use a paste-cleaning agent and a medium scouring pad, then thoroughly rinse.”

Tesco sells bleach for 39p and Sainsbury’s sells it for 50p.

Mrs Hinch fans also recommend adding Viakal, Barkeepers Friend, baby oil, and a dishwasher tablet.

“Viakal,” someone said. I had the same issue and received “Brinkwire Summary News.”
