“Allow the iron to heat, and rub the paracetamol in circles, the burn marks just wipe away!!

“Who would have guessed paracetamol could be used to clean an iron??!!”

People couldn’t believe the results, as one person exclaimed: “That’s amazing!!!”

The post comes after Mrs Hinch fans also shared simple cleaning hacks which make sure bins don’t smell in another Facebook post.

The suggestions came after one member shared a photo of their bin, writing: “My bin constantly stinks, I have to change it 3 times a week, even if it’s empty it smells and we’ve given it a shower. Any recommendations on how to make it smell nicer, thanks.”

People rushed to help the man out, as one suggested: “I use bin buddy my bin never smells when I use that inside the black bags.”

While another wrote: “Zoflora disinfectant wash out and thoroughly dried.”

A third chimed in: “Change my bin liner every day food is separate bags.”

While a fourth said: “Let the bin dry before putting in new bag.”
