the unlikely 5 supermarket buy that will leave your bathroom smelling amazing all year round

An unlikely supermarket product is being praised by shoppers online for its ability to leave bathrooms smelling fresh no matter what.

Australian mother, Belinda, shared images to the Mums Who Clean Facebook and revealed she uses the No Vac Sanitiser and Deodoriser on the tiles around her toilet.

‘When the toilet is smelling bad, just use No Vac,’ she said, adding: ‘No sticky floors or walls.’

The product’s intended purpose is to deodorise fabric material, including rugs, carpets, mats, pet beds and curtains.

Belinda said she applies the sanitiser after vacuuming, leaves it on for half an hour then mops the floor with hot water and leaves it to dry.

The No Vac product can be bought at leading supermarkets and is priced at $4.90 at Woolworths.

Another woman who saw the social media post tried the trick for herself and said it worked amazingly well on her laundry floor.

‘Whoever posted about using [No Vac] around the toilet, thank you!’ Mel said.

‘I used it in my laundry this morning. I have two fur babies who sleep in there of a night, and my eldest who is 13 very occasionally has an accident.

‘I’ve tried numerous things to try and combat the dog smell, and this has done it! Lifesaver!’

The Facebook post received more than 500 ‘likes’ and others who have tried the No Vac item agreed it works very well.

‘This stuff is so underrated, 10/10 for me especially for carpets and curtains,’ one woman said.

‘I use this for the car seats too, good one,’ another said.

A third added: ‘This is all I do, keeps the smell away.’

What can No Vac deodorise?

Bathrooms

Laundries 

Fabric materials 

Car seats

Carpets, rugs and mats

Locals said they heard a loud bang before a series of police sirens sounded down the main street.

‘There was one single loud bang, like a gunshot, before the police came from all over. It felt like we had the whole of the Central Coast police force here,’ one woman, told The Daily Telegraph.

‘I was at home [on Gosford Ave] and I heard the police helicopter. There was a megaphone or something being used, the police kept saying “put it down, put it down”.’ 

She added that the shot was possibly fired near Liquorland, by The Entrance Public School.

The publication reported that the school is in lockdown. 

The woman’s sister said she saw a helicopter take off from a park nearby. 

Officers said they are not searching for anyone else in relation to the incident.

NSW Police said roads have been closed in the area and urged residents to stay away from the area.

Sam Burgess is still fighting for access to an statement about his partying and domestic violence

sam burgess is still fighting for access to an statement about his partying and domestic violence

Sam Burgess’ ex-wife Phoebe took as sly dig at Sam as she shared a picture of herself to Instagram as the footy star’s lawyer appeared in court to fight his intimidation allegations. 

The rugby league star is still fighting for access to an explosive statement his ex-wife made to police containing allegations of excessive partying and domestic violence.

Contents of the statement were published in a newspaper earlier this month but the full document has never been seen by Burgess or tendered in a court. 

The 50-page statement contained untested claims about Burgess’s lifestyle and accusations about his conduct towards his ex-wife.

Burgess has been trying to get police to release the full statement to his lawyers but they have so far refused.

Solicitor Bryan Wrench, for Burgess, told Moss Vale Local Court on Wednesday the publication of Phoebe’s statement was part of an attempt to ‘ambush’ his client.

The court hearing came at the same time Phoebe shared a picture of her wearing a baseball cap with the words Good Times emblazoned on it. 

She was all smiles in the snap that was posted with the caption ‘optimistic’.

Burgess has hired top Sydney barrister Phillip Boulten to fight his claims, who also represented Jarryd Hayne. 

Burgess is defending a charge of intimidating Phoebe’s father Mitchell Hooke, who is the subject of an interim apprehended violence order protecting him from the retired South Sydney captain.

Mr Wrench has accused Phoebe or her father of leaking the unrelated allegations about Burgess which were published in The Australian on October 2.

He is seeking access to Phoebe’s statement and objects to it having appeared in the media without being tendered in court.

‘The circumstances of the release of that statement confirm the animosity towards my client,’ Mr Wrench said.

‘They’ve tried to ambush us.’

Mr Wrench said police had confirmed to him that Phoebe made the statement late last month, just days before its contents were published.

‘A statement was made on a certain date and that statement was given to The Australian,’ Mr Wrench told the court.

‘The police at no point released that statement to The Australian.’

Mr Wrench has suggested the document was deliberately leaked to the media ahead of the intimidation charge being heard.

‘There’s been nothing done about the investigation of why the statement was released,’ he said.

A police prosecutor said Phoebe’s statement did not form part of the intimidation case or AVO application against Burgess.

Instead it formed part of a separate investigation into the 2014 NRL premiership winner’s behaviour.

Mr Wrench will instruct leading Sydney barrister Phillip Boulten, SC, to run the matter when it goes to hearing.

Mr Boulten, a former president of the NSW Bar Association and formidable courtroom advocate, is one of the state’s most in-demand criminal law practitioners.

He has represented ex-NRL player Jarryd Hayne on rape charges and will defend former footballer Chris Dawson when he faces trial accused of murdering his wife Lynette in 1982.

Mr Wrench has previously suggested Phoebe Burgess or her father Mr Hooke might have committed contempt of court by co-operating with the media.

The lawyer first raised his concerns about the father and daughter’s conduct during an earlier mention of the intimidation charge and AVO on October 7.

Mr Hooke is pictured driving a ride-on wheelbarrow around his Southern Highlands property, where Sam and Phoebe married in 2015

Mr Wrench said Phoebe’s police statement had never been filed in court or provided to Burgess but was quoted at length by The Australian in what he described as ‘orchestrated propaganda’.

‘To be quite blunt, it appears that this is born out of either malice or retaliation,’ Mr Wrench told the court. 

He said his client ‘categorically denied’ the allegations of domestic violence made in the statement.

Burgess has not been required to appear in court for any of the mentions of the charge or AVO and neither has his father-in-law or ex-wife. 

On Monday Burgess posed happily holding hands with his two children, Poppy, three, and Billy, one, in a photo shared to Instagram. 

Phoebe returned to Instagram on October 11 after a ten-day absence, posting a picture of herself with Poppy and another with a black cat.

‘Simply because I was silent doesn’t mean I didn’t hear you, thank you for your kindness,’ she wrote. ‘Means the world to us.’

Burgess was hit with an apprehended violence order taken out by police on behalf of Mr Hooke after an alleged confrontation between the pair in October last year. 

He has pleaded not guilty to intimidating his 63-year-old father-in-law, who he is banned from approaching or contacting.

Mr Wrench told the same court last year Mr Hooke had made false allegations against his client, and there had been ‘no violence, no intimidation, no threats’.

Covid-19: Dan Andrews announces plans for outdoor dining but refuses to relax Melbourne restrictions

covid 19 dan andrews announces plans for outdoor dining but refuses to relax melbourne restrictions

Daniel Andrews used his daily press conference on Wednesday to spruik his plans for more outdoor dining – but refused to end Melbourne‘s crippling restrictions.

The Victorian government has removed the need for pubs and restaurants to get planning permits to put tables on footpaths and roads once they’re allowed to re-open.

But the premier refused to ease restrictions before next week even though the state only recorded three new coronavirus cases on Wednesday, its ninth consecutive day of single-digit figures.

Melbourne residents can socialise outside but are still not allowed to visit family and friends’ houses. Funerals are limited to 10 people and thousands of business are being kept shut.

Asked why he was waiting until Sunday to announce rule changes, the premier said: ‘We have to wait for case numbers each day. I cannot predict what the number will be tomorrow. 

‘I cannot predict what the number will be on Friday. I cannot predict what the number will be on Saturday and therefore we are waiting until Sunday and I don’t think that’s unreasonable.’ 

Mr Andrews was also questioned over his government’s extraordinary back-flip after Racing Minister Martin Pakula announced people could attend the Cox Plate horse race before reversing the decision last night following public outrage.  

The plan would have seen 1,250 people over two days attend the Moonee Valley for Friday night’s Manikato Stakes and Saturday’s Cox Plate.

Mr Andrews, who has previously insisted his decisions are based on science, admitted the plan had been approved by health officials but was scrapped only due to public unpopularity. 

‘It was cancelled because clearly it did not meet the expectations of the Victorian community,’ he said. 

‘It was the wrong call, it has been changed, it will not be happening. Let’s focus not on what’s happening on Saturday, but on what may be able to happen on Sunday, that is further easing of these rules,’ he said.  

One Victorian wrote on Twitter: ‘It has taken a horse race and public outcry to show how unscientific and nonsensical so many of our heartless and cruel restrictions are.’

Also in the press conference, Mr Andrews said an inquiry into the state’s flawed hotel quarantine program had asked him to answer some questions.

‘I would say it is an exercise for completeness’ sake if you like; I’m not changing my evidence,’ he said.

Chief Health Officer Brett Sutton has been asked to provide a new statement to the inquiry after emails emerged contradicting his earlier testimony about when he knew the program was using private security contractors.

Mr Andrews also confirmed Tuesday’s sole coronavirus case is now being treated as a reinfection, rather than a shedding of the virus from a long-past infection.

An expert panel had made the call, after the man originally tested positive in July and recently re-tested as positive for the virus.

‘The case is being managed very cautiously,’ the premier said.

Melbourne’s daily case average dropped to 6.2 and the mystery cases from 5-18 October also fell to 10.

The corresponding figures for regional Victoria remain steady at 0.4 and none.

The state’s death toll remains at 817 and the national figure is 905. Victoria has had only one death in the past week.

All the new cases are in Melbourne, with two related to the northern community outbreak and the other under investigation.

The Victorian government has backflipped over its controversial call to allow a select group of spectators on course for the 100th running of the Cox Plate (racegoers pictured last year)

There are 109 active cases in Victoria and the three regional positives remain the greater Shepparton outbreak from last week.

Meanwhile, Mr Andrews says the state is well placed to bring forward a further easing of virus restrictions slated for November 2, including the reopening of retail and hospitality industries in Melbourne.

‘It’s very important that we see this thing off properly, so Sunday will be a day where we can have more to say,’ he said.

On Tuesday, the leaders of seven major businesses, including Wesfarmers, Commonwealth Bank, BHP, Orica, Incitec Pivot, Newcrest and Coca-Cola Amatil sent a joint letter to Mr Andrews pleading for him to allow businesses to reopen.

‘We urge you now, in light of the excellent recent progress, to permit the careful and staged return to the workplace of office workers and the small businesses that provide services to them,’ they said in the letter.
