Condensation appears when water vapour condenses and droplets land on cold surfaces like windows and walls. Condensation on windows is more common during the winter months when the weather is more damp and cool and there is less ventilation inside the home. When there’s a lot of condensation, mould can develop especially around windows, on window frames or on window sills.

Luckily, fans of cleaning sensation Mrs Hinch, whose full name is Sophie Hinchliffe, have shared how they remove mould from around windows.

The cleaning and lifestyle influencer has more than 4.5 million followers on Instagram and often shares her garden and home tips online.

Fans of hers have taken to social media in recent years to share their own hacks for solving common household problems.

On one such group, Facebook user Hayley Marie posted: “Bought our house in July and have discovered that the condensation upstairs is shocking due to how well-insulated it is.

“I bought a Karcher window cleaner and getting a dehumidifier so the problem there will be fixed.

“My issue is there is now mould in my teen children’s windows where they have left them wet. How can I get it off?”

The post was inundated with responses but the most popular suggestion was to use a mould and mildew spray, whether it’s a supermarket-branded product or a mould-cleaning brand like Astonish, Mr Muscle, HG or Cillit Bang.

Jackie Butler said: “Mould and mildew spray. Find the best one. Not a cheap one worked for me.”

Carolann Bennetts replied: “Mould and mildew spray. You can get it from Poundland.”

Karen Simpson simply responded to the post: “Astonish Mould and Mildew spray.”

Janette Haig commented: “Astonish Mould and Mildew spray works great.”

Wendy Vickers suggested: “Mr Muscle mould and mildew killer. Spray and leave to soak for five minutes then wipe off.”

Judy Clarke wrote: “Cillit Bang mould remover is brilliant.”

Yvonne Hilton said: “Clean with mould and mildew by Cillit Bang.” Geraldine Baines posted: “HG Mould and Mildew spray.”

Carlyne McHugh replied: “Don’t use on wood especially that is just varnished but I think it works with all other surfaces.

“Open windows wide, ventilating the room then use HG Mould Remover Spray. It’s very effective and easy.

“No scrubbing which can spread mould spores. Just spray, walk away for 30 minutes, rinse and then dry with an old towel etc.

“Also good for grout, sealant etc in showers and mould on ceilings although wear a mask and a head covering when spraying as it’s strong stuff. Original cleaner spray used by professional cleaners and always works.”

Other suggestions from Mrs Hinch fans included using neat bleach, cleaning alcohol, a steamer and white vinegar.

Stephanie Henderson commented: “Diluted bleach and a tooth brush. Leave the windows on the latch.”

Lynne WeeBarra replied: “Buy cleaning alcohol. It’s brilliant for mould and cleaning in general.”

Anita Parker wrote: “Neat bleach on a cotton bud.” Terry Whitworth said: “Steamer, with the windows open.”
