But it was only after reading about the wonders of Scalex that she found the miracle cure - and was able to remove the build-up, which shared an uncanny resemblance to a taco.

“What can I say except thank you. I saw the Scalex posts and gave it a crack,” Ellie said

“I can’t believe what has happened. I have been trying to get this gone for 2 years!

“I was even attacking it with a screwdriver and mallet!

“Obviously it’s quite disgusting but so satisfying ha ha.”

Scalex - a heavy-duty home descaler by Hillmark - is available for around $11 from the hardware superstore.

Fans of the cleaning hack say it’s the only thing to solve the common cleaning product - all you have to do is pour it into the toilet bowl, leave overnight, give a quick clean with a toilet brush and then flush. You’re left with a sparkling white toilet, with no effort at all!

The popular Facebook group has been filled with before and afters from members, who swear by the technique.

“So I promised to report back on “operation toilet clean”. As an experiment, I tried most of the suggestions,” said Sam.

“Here are the results. Coca-Cola- Zero result; dishwasher tab - zero, Polident - zero, citric acid - about 20%. ( mostly just lightened it” )

“And then I used the Scalex - OMG - Brilliant!”

“SCALEX Look at the comparison,” said member Louise.

“Before anyone judges me no I am not a filthy person. No, my toilet does not look like that because I did not clean.

“I rent the property and the first pic is how the toilet was when I moved in I had tried everything.”
