Cleaning fanatic gets grim rusty radiator sparkling new in seconds using KETCHUP


YOU never know when a takeaway is going to call for a healthy dollop of ketchup - which is why we always have a spare bottle (or five) cluttering up our kitchen cupboards.

But not only does tomato sauce liven up some fish and chips, it also works a treat at removing rust... hear us out.

Posting on the Facebook group Mrs Hinch Cleaning Tips, one savvy woman explained how she used the condiment to get her grim bathroom radiator looking sparkling new.

Sharing incredible before-and-after photos, she wrote: "Wow! Ketchup and scrunched up foil removed the rust!"

It may sound bonkers but the acetic acid in ketchup is known to tackle rust while its high viscosity is ideal for polishing tarnished silverwear, according to LifeHacker.

Meanwhile, the science blog Slippery Rock Gazette claims that tin foil "dissolves the rust chemically so you don’t need to rub nearly as hard" as you would have to with steel wool.

The post racked up over 3,000 "likes" in the group and people were desperate to try it themselves.

"OMG," one replied. "That’s amazing!!!"

Another added: "Unreal, looks brand new!"

"Whattttt, pass me the ketchup," a third said. "Looks great!
