Tanya cleaned the oven racks over a sink filled with soapy water while wearing rubber gloves.

After constantly swiping the steel, the frozen cubes seemed to turn into a ‘mushy’ jelly-like consistency and the racks were left sparkling clean.

In a second video she added two frozen detergent cubes into the barrel of the washing machine to lift the stains from her white laundry.

Previously others have recommended added a couple of dishwasher tablets into the home appliance to achieve a similar outcome.

Collectively both videos have received more than 160,000 views from TikTok users worldwide who couldn’t believe the unlikely cleaning hack worked.

‘I just want to know how you discovered this,’ one person wrote.

‘Omg I can save so much on laundry pods!’ another said, a third deemed the hack to be ‘life changing’.

Woman disgusts TikTok viewers by revealing she grates a hard-boiled EGG over her spaghetti Bolognese

Woman disgusts TikTok viewers by revealing she grates a hard-boiled EGG over her spaghetti Bolognese – as critics say the bizarre combo ‘should be illegal’

  • Nurse Emma revealed the unusual item she likes to grate over her spaghetti
  • The British TikTok user admitted that she always has a hard-boiled egg on top 
  • But the bizarre topping left TikTok viewers bewildered, and others disgusted 

A woman has shocked TikTok viewers after revealing the rather bizarre topping she likes to grate over her spaghetti Bolognese – admitting she always has a hard-boiled egg on top. 

The British NHS nurse, known only as Nurse Emma on her popular social media account, has gone viral after sharing a video of her unusual food combination.

She shows viewers how she grates a hard-boiled egg over her pasta dish, before also adding cheese on top.

But the bizarre topping left TikTok viewers bewildered, and others disgusted, with one writing: ‘I’m sure this is illegal… if it’s not it should be.’

A British NHS nurse, known only as Nurse Emma on her popular social media account, has gone viral after sharing a video of her unusual food combination. Pictured, Emma grating a hard-boiled egg over her spaghetti Bolognese 

Speaking in her video, which was posted four days ago, Emma said: ‘Right, so this is something that people tell me is weird…

‘But I wanted to come on here and do this to see if anyone else does it. I grate egg on top of my spaghetti bolognese.

‘I haven’t seen anyone else do this, so I thought I would finally get an answer and see if anyone else does it. Does anyone think this is strange or is this normal? Please let me know.’

More than 88,000 people have since watched the clip, with it receiving more than 3,000 likes and hundreds of comments.

But the bizarre topping left TikTok viewers bewildered, and others disgusted, with one writing: 'I'm sure this is illegal... if it's not it should be.'

Several people were quick to label the combination ‘illegal’, while another wrote: ‘What?? No… I grate cheese on top of my spag bol.’

A second added: ‘I think I can safely say, no you’re on your own with this,’ while a third penned: ‘I think there’s probably a reason you haven’t seen anyone else do it. But if it works for you, keep on grating.’

However, others weren’t totally against the idea, as some even confessed they plan on trying the unusual topping.

One follower asked Emma to share how the concoction came about, so in a follow-up clip, she explained that it was a family tradition.

‘Basically my dad brought me up with this, so this was normal,’ she said. ‘His mum did it and it’s been passed down the generations, so until I had done this video I hadn’t realised it wasn’t normal.

‘It was completely the done thing in our family. Have you tried it?’ she asked. ‘And also I don’t just put the egg on my spaghetti, I also have some cheese.

‘ It’s such a good combination and I could never imagine eating spaghetti bolognese without it,’ the nurse concluded.

NHS worker is mortified when neighbour leaves note after hearing him crying while listening to Adele

An NHS worker was left crying tears of embarrassment when his next door neighbour dropped off a note – after hearing a particularly sorrowful karaoke session.

Harry Joe, 25, from Leeds but based in Aberdeen, had spent the prior evening crying in his bath while listening to Adele. 

The next day, his compassionate neighbours left him a note asking if he wanted company, which tipped Harry off that they might have heard him cry and sing to Adele’s music the night before.  

He shared his story on Twitter and it quickly went viral, with many saying the NHS worker’s neighbours sounded like lovely people. 

Harry Joe, 25, pictured, from Leeds but based in Aberdeen, had spent the prior evening crying in his bath while listening to Adele when he received a note from his neighbour, whom he didn’t know very well, asking if he needed company

Harry shared the sweet note online, which read: ''Hey, I hope this doesn't come across weird but if you ever want to hang out, give me a knock. It would be nice to know someone in the building and I think it would be good for my dog to meet new people too'

Harry shared the sweet note online, which read: ”Hey, I hope this doesn’t come across weird but if you ever want to hang out, give me a knock. It would be nice to know someone in the building and I think it would be good for my dog to meet new people too’

Harry, who shared the note on Twitter, wrote: ‘Do you think my neighbour heard me crying to Adele in the bath? Yes or Yes?’

The note read: ‘Hey, I hope this doesn’t come across weird but if you ever want to hang out, give me a knock.

‘It would be nice to know someone in the building and I think it would be good for my dog to meet new people too,’ it went on. 

Harry, who is currently based in Aberdeen working as a student operating department practitioner with the NHS, added: ‘How sweet is that?’

Harry shared the sweet note online from his neighbour and said that they have since started texting each other and plan to go for coffee

Explaining more about his bath time performance, the 25-year-old revealed he was having a soak in the tub on the evening of Monday 3 May when he heard the letter box.

Harry said: ‘I thought it was going to be a noise complaint at first! But once I read it I was a bit embarrassed.

‘But also thought how nice it was, people don’t usually interact in that way anymore, especially in their early 20s.

‘Crying to Adele was a semi-joke. I often have a bath with a bottle of wine and a mopey Spotify playlist – but I do love Adele and I’m ready for the new album.’

Up until this point, Harry, who has lived in his flat for a year, said he and his neighbour had only exchanged polite greetings after he moved in around a month ago.

The NHS worker broke the news to his neighbour, with whom he was now exchanging texts, that his tweet about the note had gone viral

The student ODP responded to the message the following morning by sharing his phone number and the sweet exchange has led to a blossoming friendship.

Harry said: ‘We’ve never stopped for an actual chat so I think he genuinely wanted to meet his new neighbours.

And he’s revealed the note has opened the door for a sweet friendship between the two neighbours.  

‘We’re going for a coffee and a walk into town today, we’ve messaged a fair bit,’ he said. 

The neighbour, who has now been revealed to be Bradly, 24, saw Harry’s post go viral and found the whole thing funny.

People loved the story and said Harry's neighbour sounded lovely and did a very nice thing for him

Harry said: ‘I had to break it to him that the tweet went viral but he found it funny and said his friends had already seen it but didn’t realise it was him.

‘I thought my follower base would find it entertaining but I didn’t think it would go viral – let’s hope the queen of pop Adele sees it!’

The lovely story has received a positive response from Twitter, with nearly everyone saying what a nice thing it was to do and the rest asking to see photos of the dog.

‘I think that is a lovely gesture… we call people neighbours but often they are just people we nod at and smile .. this person is reaching out which is what actual neighbours do rather than being “someone I live in close proximity to” could be a friendship waiting to start,’ one follower tweeted.

‘Awh this is really cute!!’ one said. 

‘Awfully sweet indeed!,’ agreed a third person.

‘They have a dog. I’d be there in a flash,’ one joked. 

‘Fast forward two years to the cuddles on the couch and the dog quite at home by your side,’ one said. 

Birmingham NHS worker blasts ‘bizarre’ extension on neighbour’s home

An investigation has been launched into an extension that has left a property just inches away from a neighbouring home.

NHS worker Stuart Smith can no longer access the side of his house in Kings Norton, Birmingham, after a ‘bizarre’ extension of the property next door left only eight inches between the two homes.

The new guttering of his neighbour’s home is actually touching Mr Smith’s. The 42-year-old claims that the extension did not follow plans.

He alleged that builders were not able to properly fit the roof of his neighbours home, so instead built a wall beneath the roof, Birmingham Live reported. 

Mr Smith told the outlet that the ‘overlapping’ guttering has left him worried about drainage and damp seeping into his property.

The extension, which was intended to add two bedrooms to the previously three-bed home, is now under investigation by Birmingham City Council.

Mr Smith said his neighbours sought planning permission in 2018 for a two storey extension at the front of their home and one storey at the back.

The extension has doubled the size of the property, which now has a bigger kitchen, garage and utility room as well as the additional bedrooms and a loft conversion. 

The Birmingham and Solihull Mental Health Foundation Trust IT worker, said construction began at the end of January 2021.

But it was not until March that Mr Smith and his wife Sallyanne, a nursery teacher, could see how close the top of the building was to their own home.

Mr Smith told Birmingham Live that he had raised concerns with the neighbour, who said they would 'sort it out,' but the problem was never resolved by the builders

‘It looked very close, but you couldn’t see it properly as it was obscured a bit [by the scaffolding],’ he told Birmingham Live.

He described the construction work as having been ‘like a catalogue of errors right the way across.’

‘It’s come over the boundary on the same land – effectively you have two buildings occupying the same space,’ he said, adding that it will now be difficult to maintain his own property.  

‘We can never remove the gutters now, we can’t unfix the felt roof, or the fascias or render the side of the house. It’s like that permanently now and any problems we’ll have to live with.’

Mr Smith told Birmingham Live that he had raised concerns with the neighbour, who said they would ‘sort it out,’ but the problem was never resolved by the builders. 

‘They [the builders] didn’t actually realise their mistake until they started building underneath my eaves. It was only when they got so far up they realised my roof was in the way of them putting their own roof on. 

‘[The builders] didn’t fix it, they just worked around it, bodged it, recessed it in, built a little flat roof and built the roof to the side – Bizarre. 

Work on the neighbouring property is yet to be completed,  so Mr Smith is hopeful that the problem will be resolved before it continues

The unexpected predicament has left Mr Smith, who moved into his home in 2017, feeling stressed and struggling to sleep, he said.

‘I feel absolutely awful over this. I try to push it to the back of my mind trying to forget about it – but then I don’t make any progress. 

‘So then I have to concentrate on it and it just winds me up. I have difficulty sleeping. It’s just very stressful. It’s a lot of worry. We bought the house as the house we wanted to live in forever. 

‘It’s just tainted this a bit now.’ 

Work on the neighbouring property is yet to be completed, Mr Smith told Birmingham Live, so he is hopeful that the problem will be resolved before it continues.   

‘It’s just going to save people money in the long run. The side wall needs rebuilding and moving and the roof needs taking off and putting on properly.

‘He’s going to have all sorts of problems with damp in the future and leaks.

‘I’m speaking to a solicitor, but it’s very slow going as we’re going through the building insurers.’  

Boris Johnson ‘will spend billions of pounds to save the Union’

Boris Johnson ‘will spend billions of pounds improving road and rail links to Scotland to save the Union’ and see off threat of independence referendum as Nicola Sturgeon’s hopes of winning a majority are on a knife edge

  • Boris Johnson plans to spend billions of pounds on infrastructure to save Union
  • PM expected to implement plans in the wake of Thursday’s Holyrood elections
  • Poll shows SNP heading for victory but winning majority could be on knife edge
  • Fear an SNP majority will see Nicola Sturgeon immediately demand IndyRef2 

Billions of pounds will be spent on improving road and rail links to Scotland under plans being put forward by Boris Johnson to strengthen the Union, it was claimed today. 

The Prime Minister is said to be preparing to splash the cash on better infrastructure in a desperate bid to see off the threat of Scottish independence. 

The Government is also looking at treating Scottish NHS patients on beds in England to deal with an operations backlog while UK diplomats in foreign capitals will be told to stress the case against independence. 

The plans could also see a student exchange programme set up between the UK nations.  

News of the PM’s plans, first reported in The Sunday Telegraph, came amid fears of a an SNP landslide victory at Thursday’s Holyrood election. 

However, a new poll suggests that while Nicola Sturgeon’s party is on course for victory, her chances of winning a crucial majority appear to be on a knife edge.

Winning a majority is seen as key because Ms Sturgeon believes it would give her a mandate to hold a second independence referendum. 

Falling short of the benchmark would strengthen Mr Johnson’s hand and bolster his position of refusing to grant permission for a re-run of the 2014 vote. 

Mr Johnson is due to chair a meeting attended by Chancellor Rishi Sunak and Minister for the Cabinet Office Michael Gove, as well as the secretary of states for Northern Ireland, Wales and Scotland, when his Union plans will be finalised. 

The proposals are then expected to be rolled out in the aftermath of the ‘Super Thursday’ elections. 

There are concerns in Westminster that Ms Sturgeon will immediately demand an independence referendum should she secure a majority.    

One senior Government source told The Sunday Telegraph that the result is likely to be ‘bloody awful’ in Scotland and ‘we are in a bare knuckle fight’. 

There are hopes in Whitehall that Ms Sturgeon will fall short of a majority, potentially torpedoing her demands for a second border poll. 

One minister told the newspaper: ‘If you have a combined Lib-Lab-Con vote of over 50 per cent, then that is very significant.’ 

A highly-anticipated ‘Union connectivity review’ conducted by former Network Rail boss Sir Peter Hendy is due to report by July. 

The work will include a feasibility study on establishing a permanent tunnel or bridge connecting Scotland and Northern Ireland.    

It came as a Panelbase survey for The Sunday Times suggested Mrs Sturgeon is on course for victory on Thursday but that whether she wins a majority could be tight. 

The poll, conducted between April 28 and April 30 suggested the SNP could gain two seats on their 2016 tally, giving them an outright majority of just one.  

Sir John Curtice, professor of politics at Strathclyde University, said the polling numbers suggested the SNP could end up with 65 seats, the Tories down three with 28, Labour down six with 18, the Lib Dems up one with six, the Greens up three with nine and the Alba Party with three.
