Cleaning star Mrs Hinch, whose real name is Sophie Hinchliffe, garnered popularity after sharing her cleaning tips and recommendations on social media and TV. The cleaning enthusiast has managed to gain over 4.2 million followers on Instagram. Now, fans of hers have created their own social media groups dedicated to cleaning and tidying tips.
Facebook Kimmi Bee asked one such group: “Help?! Moved house a month ago and just noticed at the side of my make-up drawers a mark so moved them and greeted by this [mould].
“The drawers have only been sat there four weeks maximum.
“I’ve informed my land lady as I wasn’t sure what the best way is to clean and prevent it.
“I need to make sure it’s gone and stays gone as my partner suffers from asthma.
“I’d rather stay away from harsh chemicals like bleach as the fumes of bleach knock me out. This [wall] is linked to an outside wall and next door.”
Kimmi’s post was inundated with responses from Mrs Hinch fans.
The most popular response was to use Astonish Mould and Mildew spray.
