Stickers and sellotape can often leave unsightly sticky marks on UPVC window frames, doors and plastic toys. Even the best cleaning products can struggle to remove the stubborn residue. Fans of cleaning sensation Mrs Hinch, whose full name is Sophie Hinchliffe, have shared a simple 99p solution.

Mrs Hinch rose to fame after sharing her cleaning tips and recommendations on social media and TV.

The cleaning enthusiast has managed to gain over 4.1 million followers on Instagram.

Now, fans of hers have created their own social media groups dedicated to cleaning tips and hacks.

On one group, a social media user asked how she can remove sticky residue from her front door.

She said: “Hubby has tried bleach and jet wash on this gluey mark but can’t get it off.

“The Pink Stuff paste says not for plastic. Any ideas to get the marks off?”

She posted a photo of her front door which appears to have a yellow sticker mark on it.

The post garnered over 1,500 comments and 66 likes from Mrs Hinch fans.

The most common suggestion was to use nail polish remover which can be bought from Superdrug for just 99p.
