‘Keeps dust at bay for longer’: Mrs Hinch fans share £1 hack for removing dust


Cleaning fans have shared their hack for “dust problems” in the home. Mrs Hinch, whose full name is Sophie Hinchliffe, is a cleaning and lifestyle influencer with more than 4.5 million followers on Instagram. Fans of hers are so enamoured by her cleaning and tidying tips, they have set up their own social media groups in her name.

In these groups, social media users share their own cleaning methods for tasks around the home.

On one such group, Facebook user Ally Saxon asked Mrs Hinch fans: “I have a huge dust problem in my house I don’t know why it’s so bad.

“I do have a tumble dryer but I was just wondering what the best way is to clean it.

“A duster is just moving it into the air to settle again.

Other suggestions from Mrs Hinch fans included using dry shampoo, fabric softener and cleaning wipes.

Keeps dust off surfaces longer.”

Michelle Fudge wrote: “Damp dust, use one cloth that to remove dust then buff with a dry cloth.

“I find terry towelling is best like an old tea towel.”
