Mrs Hinch fans go crazy over a 27p hack to get rid of slugs in home – and it's already sitting in your kitchen cupboard


WITH the weather warming up, it feels as if your home becomes the go-to meeting place for countless pesky critters, slugs included.

Although they're not inherently harmful, finding a slippery trail on your new carpet or flooring is certainly not the best sight to wake up to.

Luckily, fans of the cleanfluencer, Mrs Hinch, have taken it to social media to share a cheap trick, The Express reported.

Mrs Hinch, whose real name is Sophie Hinchliffe, 32, has long been a favourite amongst fellow cleaning enthusiasts, with close to 4.5 million followers on Instagram.

The star rose to fame a few years ago with various home hacks and now her fans have even started dedicated cleaning pages on social media.

“I’ve noticed trails on the floor in the morning and found the occasional one in a bottom cupboard so have to wash pans prior to using them. 

“Any advice on deterrent please, seeking out where they're coming from.”

Another vouched for the inexpensive trick too: '“Scatter salt at night, it’ll definitely kill them.”

“They crawl up the pipe from outside and out through the plughole.

Sandra Slack advised: “Salt, put it down every night, that will get rid of them besides your doors and air bricks.
