The best cleaning tips and tricks inspired by Mrs Hinch

The coronavirus pandemic is upon us, and many of us are having to work from home or, at the very least, spend a a lot more time behind closed doors. If there is one positive that can be drawn from the lockdown it is that it has come at a time that it is traditionally associated with spring cleaning.

Yep, that’s right the ‘keep calm and carry on’ mentality of British folk will mean the upcoming weeks will still be a time when the marigolds go on, the elbow grease comes out and we all do our best to make our homes sparkle.

One such woman who has been using the time to clean is Mrs Hinch, AKA Sophie Hinchliffe. The famous cleaning sensation often posts tips and tricks on how to keep a tidy home to her Instagram account which has 3.3 million followers.

However it seems that her social media presence has inspired many people to also get online with their cleaning hacks, with several Facebook groups serving as forums for fans to share what they have learned. Here are three of the best.

£1 hack for removing hair and dust from your carpet

One woman on the Facebook group Mrs Hinch Cleaning Tips shared an amazing hack on how to remove hair and dust from your carpet.

Posting on the group, the woman wrote: “Amazing hack I just have to share with you all! I do this once a week and the build up is shocking.

“I have a dog so for me it gets all the dust and hair the Hoover can’t! Just the usual shower/window screen squeegee- can get from Wilko, Poundland!”

She then attached a clip of herself dragging a window squeegee across the carpet and pulling up the pet hair that was imbedded into it.

So simple yet clearly so effective, as the after shot of her completely immaculate-looking carpet showcased!

A trick to make your bathroom tiles look brand new

One woman posted her tip on how to tackle the bathroom tiles and transform your floor to the Facebook group, Mrs Hinch Cleaning Tips. She wrote: “Before and after on our bathroom! This took nearly 3 grout pens but looks a lot better.”

Grout Pens do not actually clean the dirt away, but rather they conceal it. Using ink they cover up stains using including the everyday mould or dirt that builds up on the grout in between your tiles.

On Amazon they are currently priced at £3.81 with free delivery, so to use three to cover a whole bathroom would cost just over a tenner; worth it considering the results!

How to clean your sink using fairy liquid and tin foil

You will be pleased to know that one woman came up with a fabulous hack for cleaning your sink and it, rather surprisingly, involves just tinfoil, soap and water.

A member of the Facebook group Hinch Army Cleaning Tips, shared that a great way to leave your sink sparkling clean is to scrunch up the tinfoil into a ball and then use it to scrub away muck from the draining board.

The tip, which she learnt from her dad years ago, is useful especially because if you are crumpling up the tinfoil yourself you can shape it any which way you see fit.

She explained: “Just thought I’d post this little trick my dad told me about a while ago.

"Hot water, Fairy liquid and tin foil! Tear a bit off and scrunch it up and scrub, it gets everything off and won’t scratch!
