“It takes about an hour to do properly and you most likely already have the items you need in your home,” she said in her Instagram video.

All you’ll need is a vacuum cleaner, a dishwashing tablet, a microfibre cloth and a pot lid.

“I have tried and tested so many cleaning hacks over the years and this is by far the most impressive one,” she said.

First off, remove all your cushions and vacuum the couch to remove loose dirt, dust and hair.

“I like to get into all the crevices, I do the top, I do the armrest and I do the whole thing,” Anita said.

Next, place a dishwashing tablet in a glass bowl, then pour over boiling water to dissolve it.

“Pop in your microfibre cloth and let it cool down,” she explained.

“Be careful, this might be hot. Once it’s cooled down, ring it out and wrap it around a pot lid.”

Using the microfibre wrapped lid, scrub the couch frame, then rinse the cloth and repeat the process.

“Lay out your cloth, wrap it around the pot lid and go for gold,” she said.

“You’re going to wipe down your couch starting from the top, work your way down to the bottom and the armrest. You’re going to be surprised and shocked at how gross this is.

“Repeat the process on your couch cushions, leave everything to dry and voila. Couch is clean.”

The founder of The Mise en Place said she was disgusted to see the water turn into a murky brown colour.

“I was shocked at what I saw come out of my couch,” she said.

“I like to give it a really good clean once a year but jeez, this was crazy.

“It’s the best cleaning hack of 2023.”

Her video has been viewed more than 285,000 times — with many confirming the method works.

“Wow! Trying this one,” one said.

Another suggested: “Great tip! I needed this desperately.”

One added: “Brilliant.”
