Mum's bizarre shower screen cleaning hack goes viral

Forget magic sponges, try a plastic bag!

An Aussie mum has gone viral with her unusual shower screen cleaning hack. She claims it can completely transform the glass panels with no scrubbing!

In place of traditional shower cleaners, or even a Magic Sponge, she uses a simple squirt of Jif Cream Cleaner directly on to the shower screen. To wipe it, she forgoes all usual methods and uses a plastic bag, slipped over her hand to wipe away dirt and grime.

The hack was posted to the Mums Who Clean Facebook group, where it garnered a lot of attention and praise.
