Mrs Hinch

Mrs Hinch's kitchen is utterly immaculate.

From the spotless work tops, to the gleaming floor and the sparkling sink - every surface is shined to perfection.

So, how does she get it in such tip top shape?

First, she starts with the sink.

Mrs Hinch uses soda crystals in her plugs. She pours some down and then follows it with white vinegar.

Once it's fizzed she makes the whole room smell amazing by pouring a capful of her favourite Zoflora and leaves for five minutes.

Next, she pours a kettle full of boiling water down the sink to get rid of the soda crystals.

To achieve the amazing sparkle on her sink Mrs Hinch uses her go-to favourite, Pink Stuff, wiping it all over the sink and then wiping it away.

She then uses a pine disinfectant and wipes the whole sink with her Minky - a must-have for any member of the Hinch Army.

Next, she tackles the floor. Using her trusty Vera (the Vileda spray mop), she uses diluted Zoflora mix to mop floors.

This works on laminate or on tiles and the instructions of how to make up the diluted mix are on the box.

For a deep clean, Mrs Hinch mops with Trace (the Vileda Turbo Microfibre Mop and Bucket).

She vacuums up all the crumbs on her work tops, getting right into the corners, and makes sure she shakes her toaster to remove all the bits of bread.

Mrs Hinch uses a Zoflora mix, which she puts in a spray and works across her surface tops, using a cloth to clean away any mess.
