Posting on Mrs Hinch Cleaning Tips, a public group with a staggering 336,600 members, one woman asked for advice on how to remove mould and condensation.

Denise Dos Santos shared a picture of her window, which had black mould on the frames, and asked: “Getting condensation in conservatory and house windows.

“Black mould is starting to appear at places and I wonder what the best thing to clean this with is to keep it away for as long as possible?”

She also added: “Also any tips on reducing condensation appreciated. Tried having windows open a crack and it doesn’t help any.”

Cat litter

At the same time, many suggested a hack that you might find strange – using cat litter – to keep surfaces mould and condensation free.

One cleaning enthusiast explained: “I read cheap Asda cat litter in old socks and put on window sills. Soaks up moisture and change it weekly.” 

Someone else chimed in: “I've heard cat litter in socks works. [I’ve] not tried it yet though.”

£1 spray

As well as this, many cleaning fans raved about the Astonish Mould and Mildew spray, which you can buy for as little as £1.

One Mrs Hinch fan expressed: “Mould and Mildew spray by Astonish from £1 shop, B&M, Home Bargains. Brilliant stuff, use it all the time for all sorts of things.. including any marks on white washing …”

As another advised: “Cleaning with Mould and Mildew [spray] every week.”

Good old bleach

Finally, if you’ve tried all of the above and none are working, other cleaning fans advised a simple 55p trick – bleach.

One recommended: “Wipe down with bleach. Have done this round my windows for years. Bleach kills mould spores.”
