Other group members advised against using bleach because it can be harmful towards animals if not completely removed first.
Chloe Dingwall added: “It’s so bad for the environment. Use soda crystals in hot water and use a scrubbing brush.”

They can help soften water, dissolve grease and tackle dirt and stains.
Soda crystals can also be used to clean paths and wooden decking, which often collects algae and moss.
