A woman has shared a handy hack to ridding vacuum cleaners of hair and leaving them looking clean and good as new.
A blogger has shared a hack to ridding your vacuum cleaner of hair - and it will only cost 59p.
Anyone with long hair will know the struggle of the roller part of the cleaner getting clogged up, which has a detrimental affect on the efficiency of the cleaner.
But there's a very simple remedy to combat this, and it was shared by a cleaning Instagram account Mrs D's Cleaning Reviews (real name Kelly).
She says that, while there are a number of products on the market specifically aimed at ridding cleaners of hair, these can often be expensive.
Kelly adds that she uses a stitch picker - a product designed for tailors - that she bought from Home Bargains for just 59p.
Sharing a series of videos of the hacks, Kelly wrote: "The stitch picker glides through the tangled hair so easy, and it’s the only thing I will use to remove the hair from my vacuum roller."
The post has racked up a number of comments and likes from her 28,000 followers, with one writing: "This is genius. I have so many of these little tools in my sewing kit and long hair is the bain of my life."
Another added: "Such a clever tip. Would never have thought of this."
