A CREATIVE home decorator has changed his fence with a £5 product, but not everyone believes in its effectiveness.
Alex Alvey shared the hack, which involved him dipping a microfiber dusting glove in fence paint, on TikTok.
The result, he said, is that it’s possible to coat the fence with paint in a short amount of time.
“Wish I had tried this sooner,” he wrote.
“All you need is a laundry glove, a microfiber duster, and paint your fence.
“Managed to finish 5 sheets in half an hour and it covers as good as a paintbrush.”
The product in question is the Wilko 2-in-1 Microfiber Car Wash Glove which retails for just £5.
However, critics say this unusual method is a quick way to cut off a splint or two.
“Wasted amount of paint and you’ll literally end up with a serious crumb,” one user wrote.
“All I can feel are crumbs in my hand,” another added.
Alex said he avoided this by wearing a rubber glove underneath the glove.
Others are quick to point out that sprayers can be “much faster and easier”.
They wrote: “You will be shocked to realize there are such things as aerosols.
Creative gardening isn’t the only one as another man shares how to plant new plants into the soil when they are at their weakest.
