    Genius washing up sink hack

    Annoyed by constantly having to keep a bottle of washing up liquid by the sink, Mrs D, from Chorley, cleverly found a use for the kitchen sink circle.

    Explaining the sink hack on Instagram, Mrs D removes the circle and inserts a soap dispenser into it. Not only does it fit in neatly alongside her taps, but it also removes the need to have a soap bottle next to the sink always.

    The Instagram cleaner took to social media to show us all how it can be done.

    Say goodbye to the sink circle

    In her video on the Mrs D’s Cleaning Tips Instagram account, Mrs D firstly explains why the circle is there on the sink in the first place.

    ‘If you’ve ever wondered what this little circle is on your sink, It’s actually where your tap would go if your sink was the other way round. And this disc can actually be removed very easy,’ explains Mrs D.

    The cleaning fanatic then removes the disc from her sink and replaces it with a pump dispenser she bought from Amazon. Mrs D fits the pump dispenser into her sink, then fills it up with her favourite washing up soap.
