‘Completely gone’: Mrs Hinch fans share tips for removing black mould – ‘works a treat’


Mrs Hinch, real name Sophie Hinchliffe, rose to fame on social media after she started sharing unusual cleaning tips and tricks. With more than four million followers, fans of the cleaning guru often share their own hacks, including how to remove black mould.

Posting on the Mrs Hinch Cleaning Tips Facebook page, one group member asked for some advice when it came to black mould.

The group member wrote: “Does anyone have any advice? My bedroom has started growing black mould and my landlord said it is because it is in the coldest part of the house with no insulation in the attic.

“It’s getting worse and the paint is peeling off, any advice would be so grateful.”

Black mould is often caused by condensation and is found in the corners of walls, ceilings or on cold surfaces.

“I find my dehumidifier works a treat. I had a mould problem years ago and since using a dehumidifier, it’s completely gone and never returned.”

Opening windows regularly to help circulate the air can also help to prevent mould from growing.

One other Mrs Hinch fan asked for some advice for removing black mould growing in the bathroom.

This is very common due to the room often being warm and damp.

Fans recommended leaving the window open, investing in a bathroom fan and making sure to air the room out properly afterwards.

Drying towels away from the bathroom can also help to remove any present moisture.
