Online cleaning influencer Mrs Hinch has taken social media by storm over the past year.

The housework pro has amassed over three million followers with her innovative tips and tricks on keeping the home sparkling and squeaky clean.

And with the nation in lockdown, we have more time than ever to pull on our rubber gloves and do a thorough spring clean.

In fact, a recent poll by YouGov found that 49% more of us are cleaning and tidying our way through the pandemic.

So it’s also no surprise that Google searches for Mrs Hinch’s favourite cleaning accessory, the Minky cloth, have soared by 160% in the past seven days.

Now loyal fans of the Instagram star, whose real name Sophie Hinchliffe, have voted on what they reckon her most ingenious cleaning hack is.
