A grandmother from Ohio has gone viral with a cleaning hack that’s perfect for anyone with a murky pool.
Lisa Pack loves to see her 4 and 17-year-old grandchildren playing in her backyard pool, but keeping it clear has been difficult lately.
“Family time means the most to me,” she told CBS 8 News. “They just have so much fun and spending time with them is definitely what counts for me.”
Each week Pack spends about 45 minutes vacuuming and cleaning her pool, but even with the appropriate chemicals her water would quickly turn green again.
“My pool’s never been clear, it just doesn’t stay clear for some reason,” she explained. “I do live around a lot of trees […] just by mowing your grass, it’s always going to get a bit dirty here and there.”
Her daughter suggested she try placing a Mr. Clean Magic Eraser insid the skimmer basket. Pack was skeptical, but willing to try anything. She couldn’t believe it when the pool was sparkling blue after just 24 hours.
“There’s nothing,” Pack exclaimed. “There’s no green, there’s no slime on the bottom. There was no green in sight — it was amazing!”
Pack shared her story online where it quickly went viral. Viewers around the country commented on her post to share stories about how the trick had worked for them as well.
“People think I’m probably crazy for trying this, but it works,” Pack says. Watch the video below to learn more!
