£1 bathroom staple removes urine smells from toilets in 15 minutes

Unfortunately, urine smells in bathrooms are common and are often caused by urine splashing on and around the toilet.

Luckily, fans of cleaning sensation Mrs Hinch, whose full name is Sophie Hinchliffe, have shared their simple solution for banishing unpleasant urine smells from bathrooms.

The cleaning and lifestyle influencer has more than 4.7 million followers on Instagram and has authored several books.

Fans of hers have taken to social media in recent years to share their own methods for solving common household issues.

On one such group, an anonymous Facebook user asked: “Can anyone please help? How can I get the smell of urine out of my bathroom?”

The post was inundated with almost 80 comments from fellow cleaning enthusiasts and the most common solution was to use men’s shaving foam.

Melissa Jordan said: “Men’s shaving foam. I use it on the toilet and the floor around the toilet.

Karla Taylor agreed and wrote: “I do this too it’s the only thing that works!”

Caroline Coe commented: “Spray shaving foam all around the toilet and floor then scrub. Gets rid of odours.”

Yvette Askwith posted: “It’s from the floor around the toilet. Get some shaving foam and scrub it around the area, leave for around 30 minutes then wipe and mop. Thank me later.”

Em Ahern-Kenny suggested: “Shaving cream rubbed all over and then after 15 minutes mop with boiling water.”

Jan Walsh agreed and said: “I tried the shaving foam one this week, it’s an absolute game changer.”

Melody Barboza Soares opined: “If you put shaving cream around the toilet it will get rid of the smell. I just did it and it worked.”

Shaving foam can be bought online, from local supermarkets and from various beauty stores.

Boots shaving foam costs £1, Asda’s shaving foam costs £1.10 and Superdrug Men’s Moisturising Shave Foam costs £1.99.

Other suggestions from Mrs Hinch fans included using an onion, biological soap powder, Zoflora and mouthwash.

Patricia Egan commented: “Get an onion and cut it in two and leave it in the bathroom and it will absorb the smell.”

Geraldine Baines replied: “Biological soap powder. You need the enzymes to break the urine down.”

Jackie Ewing said: “Try hot water and a few capfuls of Zoflora. Mop or wipe with a microfibre cloth.”

Laura Gleeson O’Brien suggested: “Spray the area heavily around the toilet, floor and any walls nearby with Listerine original mouthwash leave for at least 24 hours then damp wipe.

“Got rid of urine smells in the bathroom that had been a problem for years for previous owners.”
