I’m a traveller & I was sick of the limescale on my taps but I’ve found a 10p hack to banish it for good | The Sun

AN Irish traveller has shared her 10p hack for banishing nasty limescale for good – and there's no scrubbing involved.

Bridget Walls (@bridgey.barbara) took to her TikTok page to reveal how she gets rid of limescale in her bathroom in no time – and not only is it easy but you probably have all the ingredients.

Demonstrating the cleaning hack to her 214k fans, the woman claimed the results were ''amazing''.

The first thing you need to do, she showed in her video, was grab heaps of tissue paper and drench it in Stardrops white vinegar spray.

Armed with loads of wet tissue, Bridget then applied the DIY limescale remover onto the affected areas, chuckling that this is like giving them a facial.

''Stuck it all on, letting it all marinate in.''

To give her bath and sink the ultimate transformation, the traveller grabbed Limescale Remover she had bagged from The Range and sprayed a generous amount into the sink.

''Just keep spraying loads, loads and loads.''

After heaps of spraying, Bridget let it all sit and do its magic for around 40 minutes before pouring bicarbonate soda into the mixture.

''Left that there for a while, a couple of minutes.

''So shiny! Like, it's all gone. The results are so amazing.''

Since being uploaded on the popular video-sharing platform, the clip has gone viral, racking up close to 450k views in less than a day.

Whilst some thanked her, others flocked to comments to share their recommendations, such as this person who advised: ''Pop your white vinegar in little food bags and tie them round your taps.

''Leave for an hour and they are brand new.''

Someone else chuckled: ''Bridgey i want u too come and clean my home.''

''That limescale remover is the best!! I love it,'' another swore by the product.

''Use white distilled vinegar its a lot cheaper and stronger,'' read another recommendation.

The traveller recently revealed she uses bleach to clean just about anything – even when it comes to washing her dishes.

In response to one, which stated that "bleach is for drains and toilets", Bridget explained: "I use bleach on absolutely everything.

"I wash up my cups and plates in bleach, I wash my floor with bleach.

"I’ll even put bleach in with my bedding and towels and stuff in the washing.

"I use it for everything.

"My home is like clinically clean."

"Traveller cleaning is just a different level of cleaning," she said in another clip.

One person then hit back to insist that bleach is "highly toxic", to which Bridget said she thinks she's become "immune" to the dangerous effects of the substance.

"When I was a child, my mum used to use the cheap bleach from Asda – twenty-something pence it used to be," she said.

"I don’t know the price of it anymore. But that bleach is so good for washing up.

"There was a cup on the side – everyone knows that the thin bleach is really watery, it looks like water – and I drank it.

"And I never died.

"And I inhale bleach every single day of my life. And I never died.

"Every traveller on this app will same the same what I’m saying. And they all never died.

"So I don’t know to be honest.

"I think maybe we’re used to it now – we’re immune."

People were quick to take to the comments section to weigh in on Bridget's revelation, with one writing: "Girl I’m an American from North Carolina and bleach cleans almost everything in my house, I feel like that’s universal and they’re just silly."

"Me too, doesn’t feel clean to me if not," another added.

"Do you just throw the bleach in the drawer when you're putting it in with your towels?
