However others warned against unscrewing the plug, writing: 'Unscrewing the plughole like that will loosen the plumbing underneath. You may well end up needing a plumber to put everything back in place again. 

'Also use one product or the other, not two together unless they say on the packaging that they are compatible with each other and meant to be used together.' 

Another follower commented: 'I did my washing machine filter thing the other day and the water smelt like rotten egg'.

Another wrote: 'OMG dishwasher tablets for the range hoods!!! I used boiling water.. bicarb and vinegar and a grout brush and scrubbed them clean… came up good but a lot of effort! Will definitely try this next time!!'.

And some admitted feeling overwhelmed, with one writing: 'OK... I give up on adulting'.
