Simply scoop the oil out with a microfibre cloth and use the natural remedy to scrub on any surface.

Then to get rid of any grease left on the wall, wipe it down with a clean cloth to reveal the sparkling results.

Elsewhere in the video, equal parts of coconut oil and baking soda were used to get rid of water marks from glass shower panels.

Another use was removing built up grime from cookware and also stopping tupperware from discolouring.

The versatile product - which can be bought from Asda for just £1.75 - could also be used to shine shoes and polish door handles.

Commenting on the post, one cleaning fanatic suggested: "I used coconut oil to 'stain' the doors in my home. Went over it a couple of times to get the colour I wanted."

While another revealed: " I make a body scrub using coconut oil, unused coffee grounds and sugar. I put it in my coffee and also in my dogs food - Does wonders for dogs, immune system, joints, coat, etc."

And a third added: "My toothpaste mix is coconut oil, baking soda, bentonite clay, calcium and magnesium powder and peppermint essential oil".

This comes after another savvy woman revealed how she uses a squeegee to keep her floor sparkling clean.

Taking to the Mrs Hinch Cleaning Tips Facebook page, she posted a photo of her carpets, writing: “Window cleaner (squeedgy) really works to lift stubborn dog hairs from stairs! Thank you to whoever shared this tip.”

Another woman then added her own post praising the tip, as she added: “OH MY GOD, IT REALLY WORKS!
