Rubber seals are often put on shower doors to stop leaking through the shower door where the two panes of glass meet. However, due to the amount of humidity and moisture in bathrooms and shower rooms, the seals can often turn yellow, mouldy or discoloured.
Luckily, fans of cleaning sensation Mrs Hinch, whose full name is Sophie Hinchliffe, have shared their simple solution for cleaning rubber seals on shower doors.
The cleaning and lifestyle influencer has more than 4.5 million followers on Instagram and often shares her garden and home tips online.
Fans of hers have taken to social media in recent years to share their own hacks for solving common household problems.
Isabel Ross asked: “Any idea on how to get rid of the yellowing of the shower rubber? It should be see-through. Thank you!”

The post was inundated with responses but the most suggested solution was to use bleach.
Emma Boocock said: “Strong bleach soaked in for an hour or two.” Jade Thompson agreed and wrote: “I take mine off and soak in bleach. Comes up like new!”
Jennie Cherry suggested: “You can slide it off then clean with a cotton bud or toothbrush with some bleach.”
Donna Bee replied: “Remove it and soak in bleach and water.” Owen John Davies said: “If you can remove it, try bleach and a pipe/straw cleaner. But you may be better just buying another!”
Maria Lee commented: “Slide the seal off and soak in whatever you have. Bleach etc.”

Dawn ‘Dottie’ Tobin agreed and replied: “Cillit Bang with bleach. Just slide off and spray then use an old metal coat hanger (unravel) push cleaning wipe down strip channels. Bit of effort but does the job.”
Lubey Lou said: “Take it off, rinse off loose dirt then soak in sterilising fluid or bleach for an hour or two.
“Use an old toothbrush to scrub in all the crevices then rinse off and reattach.”
Most households own bleach, but for those who don’t, it can be bought online or from local supermarkets.
