If you've been avoiding those chores at home, here's a simple cleaning hack for you.

We all know how annoying it can be trying to clean the washing machine filter – but it doesn't have to be hard.

Now one woman, who is a Mrs Hinch fan, has revealed the ultimate trick that'll blow your mind.

And all you need is just a nappy to be able to pull of this irritating task.

Posting in the Mrs Hinch Made Me Do It group on Facebook, the woman explained how she places a towel in front of the appliance.

Then she puts a nappy on top of it which soaks the "manky water" before you can throw it all away in the bin.

The woman wrote: "If anyone is going to clean their filter in the washing machine, then put a nappy underneath when opening.

"It soaks up all the manky water and can go straight in the bin. Thank me later!"

People are recommended to clean their filter every three to four months – even if it is a self-cleaning washing machine.

And since the woman posted the "genius" nappy trick, the post secured 1,300 likes.

One wrote: "Genius. I never would have though of it though."

Another added: "I used to always grab nappies for spillages. Perfect on mopping up carpet spills too."

While a third Facebook user commented: "This is a good idea.

"I always clean my filter out before I do a towel wash, so I use the dirty towels to catch the water then wash them."
