An Aussie mum has come up with a unique way to banish the smell of urine from her bathroom – by covering it in shaving foam!

Posting on the Mums Who Clean Facebook page, one woman waxed lyrical about the bizarre cleaning method.

"I'd just like to say a huge thank you to the beautiful mum who said to use shaving cream in the toilet to get rid of urine smell. I sprayed it everywhere and rubbed it in went back a few hours later to wipe down and the smell has gone.

"It worked for me and yes I only paid a couple bucks for the stuff best tip ever! Thank you once again."

“Anyone who has a house full of young boys will understand why it's spread far and wide and to all of the grout and corners,” wrote another member.

Mums say it works better than commercial cleaning products, because the chemicals in the shaving foam destroy the urine rather than just covering the smell.

Cleaning and organising hacks are a popular topic currently, with another mum coming up with a nifty way to clean an oven door – by using a dishwashing tablet on it.

The hack requires simply dipping the tablet into a pot of warm water, and then using it to gently rub off all the stains on the door.

“After years of using strong chemicals and a tonne of elbow grease to clean my oven I am amazed that all it takes is a dishwasher tablet, warm water and a light scrub,” she wrote in the Mums Who Clean Facebook group.
