The $4 Bunnings hack that will leave your carpet spotless in seconds

Cleaning aficionados have come up with the perfect hack for a spotless carpet – and it involves an item that you most likely already have at home.

Started by the queen of clean Sophie Hinchliffe, otherwise known as Mrs Hinch, she revealed that an ordinary $4 squeegee from Bunnings is the best way to remove dirt and debris from your carpet.

With over 1.8 million followers on Instagram, Mrs Hinch shared a video showing how she gently scrapes her dry carpet with the squeegee to lift away hair, dust and lint.

And it definitely worked, as towards the end of the clip, Mrs Hinch picked up a ball of dust that the squeegee had accumulated.
