If you love the idea of trying one of the popular spin mops, but aren't sure about the dirty water going right back into the bucket, then this trick using a bargain buy is for you.

Danielle, who shares cleaning hacks on TikTok under @momthatlovestoclean, shared a trick she had learned when using the popular Vileda Easy Wring & Clean Turbo Mop.

In the clip, the mum shows how she uses a cheap bucket - like the $1 ones that can also be picked up at Bunnings - to fit into the opening of the Vileda bucket, so the clean water stays separate from the dirty water.

"I just bought an extra bucket that fits right into my (Vileda)," she said, thanking one of her followers for the hack which they posted in her comments section.

"And then I’m able to dunk it into water."


"Omg you're a genius, I never thought of this," one person commented on the video, which has been viewed over 40K times.

The hack also quickly made its way onto Facebook, where impressing shoppers praised the simple trick.

"I tried this with a Bunnings bucket and worked a treat," one person raved.

"Why didn’t I think of that?" another asked.

You can also grab the popular spin mop at Woolworths - where it's currently on special for $45 - to try the trick at home yourself.

Another shopper recently showed off their stunning stove top makeover using another popular Bunnings and Woolworths buy.

The woman shared her incredible stovetop transformation hack online explaining that she used Ajax wipes and Bar Keepers Friend from Woolworths for the stainless steel.

She then used Hillmark ShineOn Solid Hotplate Protector from Bunnings for the hotplates and she bought new covers from Ebay for $20.

People online were seriously impressed with the transformation, with one person exclaiming: “What kind of witchcraft is this?”
