A WOMANwhose partner scratched up her flooring while moving furniture was desperate to find a way to repair the damage without having to replace the flooring altogether.
Feeling at a loss, she sought out advice from fellow Facebook users where many claimed a humble walnut would do the trick.
She first posted in the Mums Who Clean Facebook group, asking advice after her partner accidentally left the trail of destruction when moving their fridge.
Cleaning fans suggested a range of useful supplies – including olive oil and a crayon -but an overwhelming amount suggested rubbing a walnut over the area.
While it seems an unlikely solution, the cleaning fan thought to give it a go, and to her surprise the scratch marks had completely vanished – and people can't believe how well it works.
Impressed by the results, she later shared snaps of her flooring to the same group which showed off her new and improved floors.
In her post she revealed: "The scratch is gone! Thanks to the ladies who recommended a walnut. It certainly did the trick and didn’t take long at all."
She explained that she used the the soft, inner part of the walnut and rubbed it over the area.
She then waited 10-20 minutes and rubbed it again with her finger to blend it a little more.
Next, she said: " I used an almost dry cloth to buff it. I didn’t want to use a completely dry cloth as it may have unsettled it. Works a treat!"
According to Lifehacker,wood, vinyl or laminate flooring absorbs the oil from the nut which helps conceal the scratches – or eliminate them altogether.
People were amazed to see how the humble walnut could help in repairing scratched up floors.
"Holy that’s amazing!!" one person wrote, "I’m about to move out of a house with timber floors guess who’s going walnut shopping tomorrow."
And another said: "This is such a good tip. I am going to try it. Thanks
Meanwhile, one person even described the hack as "magic".
Previously on the same page, another cleaning fan shared a video of her demonstrating the hack which very clearly shows the marks vanishing under the flesh of the walnut.
