Although some experts say you should use a "swivel" or "fan" method when squeegeeing, this one used long downwards motions in her demonstration.

She also said: "Use lids to prevent condensation when cooking.

"Keep the room well-ventilated when drying clothes indoors.

"Make sure you open windows to release any humid air.

"You can also use a dehumidifier or humidity reader."

Not everyone on TikTok was convinced by her advice.

Ab said: "Imagine having your house on a consistent temperature.

"How do people afford that?"

Talha said: "Opening a window in a country like the UK will only bring in more moisture."

One user said: "Do I have this much time to spare each day? No."

Another said: "I won't be able to turn my heating on this winter due to the cost of living crisis… so no 18-21 for me."

Many people said that installing a positive input ventilation system is a much easier way to ward off mould.

One commenter said: "Include plants in your house as well.

"They soak up any steam and water droplets – since having them in my bathroom, I haven't got any more mould."
