Bella said: “Limescale can be a real irritant, especially around taps and other metal fixtures in the bathroom – don’t get me started on the kettle.

“If you live in a hard water area like me (Norfolk is gorgeous but suffers from very hard water), your bathroom will be especially susceptible.”

Bella recommends using six tablespoons of bicarbonate of soda and four tablespoons of water for this hack.

She explained: “Simply combine these two ingredients in a bowl until you have a nice thick paste.

“If it’s a little too stiff, add water to loosen. Similarly, add more bicarb if it’s a little loose.

“Apply to problem areas and scrub (use a wet copper wire pad for a scratch-free scrubbing power on metal). Rinse with clean water and buff with a cloth.”

You can use this hack to get rid of the unsightly brown marks in the toilet, and it will do a much better job than bleach.

Pop four generous tablespoons of bicarbonate of soda into the toilet bowl and scrub it with a toilet brush.

Bella said: “Use all the elbow grease you can muster and leave it overnight. Repeat if necessary.

“If it needs an extra boost add 200ml of white vinegar and viola brown marks disappeared!”
