I tested the viral 55p hack to help prevent condensation in your home this winter – the results really surprised me | The Sun

HOMEOWNERS can experience problems with condensation and mould in the winter months.

Along with causing health issues, it can also be a very pricey problem to resolve.

Many people have been seeking quick and cheap solutions – and one woman named Sunny decided to put one of them to the test.

The mum-to-be took to TikTok and explained how she'd noticed condensation on the window in her little one's nursery, so she decided to give the 55p Fairy liquid hack a go, which is meant to either reduce or stop condensation altogether.

In the clip, she begins: "As you can see, I'm using a microfibre cloth and kitchen roll to make sure it's all dry, then I went in with Elbow Grease washing up liquid and a dry microfibre cloth.

She adds: "You just need a small amount and you want to smear it all over the window."

She continues: "So the washing up liquid is meant to form a barrier to stop the water from sticking to the window.
