TikTok user @kingoftheclean, who is known for sharing cleaning tips and tricks online, revealed that the top and sides of your radiator can actually be easily taken apart.

Doing so allows you to get right into the grates where dirt and dust builds up, meaning your radiators can be given the TLC they’re probably in desperate need of.

Using a screw driver he prises one side off the radiator, before lifting off the top section to reveal just how much dust and grime was hiding underneath.

To clean, he swears by Flash Traditional Multi-Purpose Cleaner with Bicarbonate of Soda (£3, Wilko) which he sprays all over the grates before scrubbing at the dirt with a sponge.
