In the viral clip, Mum Amanda walks her followers through her cleaning process step-by-step.

She says this is what she does when her bathroom smells like “boy pee” because her boys have “terrible aim”. 

She begins with an unusual product for cleaning.

“Shaving cream helps get rid of that odour, especially in the grout”, she says.

She goes on: “Pour some cleaner into the toilet bowl scrubber and then put it back in the corner of the bathroom.

“A few drops of essential oils on cotton balls and stick those back in the toilet paper roll.

“Tape a car air freshener to the inside of the trash can and put that bad boy back.”

However, commenters began to see a real issue with the video when Amanda advised putting fabric softener in the toilet cistern. 

“Add a little detergent or fabric softener to the back of the toilet.”

The video has racked up seven million views, and many viewers were concerned about Amanda’s use of products – particularly because they think it could ruin her plumbing.

“DO NOT ADD S*** TO YOUR WATER TANKS IT CAUSES EXCESSIVE STRESS ON GASKETS AND PIPING”, said one outraged viewer.

A second said: “My grandpa was a plumber before he died. He stressed if it wasn’t made for a toilet (or even just plumbing) DON’T PUT IT IN YOUR TOILET!!!”

Others said the different smells would be overwhelming.

“Your guests will leave with raging headaches from scent overload”, said one, while a second wrote: “I have a headache just thinking about all the smells that would come at me.”

Some, however, came to Amanda’s defence.

“I personally think these tips are great”, wrote one supportive commenter, and another added: “I love these tips! Sorry about the comments.”
