Mrs Hinch - otherwise known as Sophie Hinchcliffe - is well-known and beloved for sharing cleaning tips and tricks.

So much so, she's inspired a whole community including a Facebook group called Mrs Hinch Cleaning Tips where like-minded users ask and answer questions on everything from stubborn stains to useful products.

We've also recently shared some of the best household hacks on how to keep your fridge fresh, the best way to clean your toilet and how to clean your windows without leaving streaks among others.

One of the most recent dilemmas involves the best way to wash blinds. 

A member of the community group asked fellow cleaning fanatics: "Morning everyone, we have bought a house with these blinds, any tips on how to wash/ clean them."

Users took to the comments to share some of their top tips and preferred methods.

Some members suggested putting the blinds in a pillowcase, soft laundry bag or thick towel and putting them in the washing machine.

One person suggested: "Roll them up into a pillowcase and secure with ribbon then either hang on the line or maidens to dry don't understand conditioner just a bit of clothes wash".

Another user chimed in: "Low heat in machine in a pillow case iron them when you take them out straight away and hang them damp with weights put in a whitener with soap power no conditioner all good as new do mine all the time."

A third wrote: "Double check but ones I had I put in a zipped laundry bag and on a delicate wash in the machine and hang them back up to dry.."

However, there were some members who opt for a different method - taking them down and washing them in the bath.

One member recommended: "Soak them in bath with washing powder."

A second person commented: "Wash in bath and hang on line."

While another posted: "In Bath with washing powder. Then rinse. Wee bit if lenor to make them smell good, then hang them back up damp."
