Mrs Hinch fans share trick for removing dirt hidden behind radiators in seconds
Mrs Hinch gained popularity after sharing her cleaning tips on social media and on TV – and now her army of 4.1 million fans have created their own social media groups to spread more tips and tricks amongst themselves.
One question recently asked by a member of a Facebook group of Mrs Hinch fans centred around cleaning radiators, especially the build-up of dust and dirt that collects between the radiator and the wall.
A woman wrote: "Can anybody help me with tips for cleaning my radiators? The top doesn't come off.”
And while some suggested she splash the cash on a special radiator brush to reach the crevices behind the heating device, others told her not to bother with spending money – because there’s a unique hack that uses an item you probably already have in your house.

Several commenters told her to blow the dirt out from the radiator using a hairdryer, so that it’s easy to vacuum or sweep up the mess afterwards, as reports The Sun.
And the simple trick will likely take you no longer than one minute to accomplish.
One person replied: "I blow the hairdryer down mine to blast the dust out and then hoover up what comes out!"
While another agreed, adding: "Blast with a hairdryer. It will blow the dust out of the bottom."
Someone else took a DIY approach to the radiator brush and suggested simply fashioning your own brush using other common household items.
They wrote: "I attach a cloth to a feather duster that works.”
Previously, other fans of cleaning superstar Sophie Hinchcliffe also dished out tips for keeping the rubber seal around a washing machine door clean.
After a user on another Facebook group asked of help, over 130 people responded with tricks including leaving the door open and opting for washing powder over liquid.
One comment read: “Leave the door ajar between washes.
"Regularly do a 60C wash for towels. For example, with washing powder and oxygen bleach and no conditioner, which doubles as a machine clean wash."
While another posted: “Don’t use liquid use powder.
“There are no enzymes in liquid like in powder.
“Powder enzymes keep the mould and black in the drawer away.”
If you do find your machine door seal getting mouldy, one poster suggested using white vinegar to clean the rubber.
They posted: "Clean with white vinegar."
Other suggestions from cleaning enthusiasts include using salt, Dettol, dishwasher tablets, Zoflora and soda crystals.
