Mrs Hinch – real name Sophie Hinchliffe – has become a social media sensation in recent years, sharing her cleaning and organisational tricks online. More than four million people follow the guru and regularly share their own hacks online.

It is recommended that they are cleaned often to help prevent dust buildup. 

The buildup of dust can not only make allergies worse, but can make the rest of the home dirty.

Asking for advice on the Mrs Hinch Cleaning Tips Facebook page, Alvin Paris asked for some blind cleaning advice.

The cleaning fan wrote: “Any ideas on a faster way to clean my blinds? I can’t take them off the window to clean them.”

Dust as well as pet hair floating in the air can rest on blinds, making them extremely dusty.

This is especially true for those with slatted horizontal blinds and those in the kitchen.

Cleaning them can be time consuming but Mrs Hinch fans took to the comments to share their own methods.

Suzanne Nangle commented: “Use an inside out sock on your hand and then use a tumble dryer sheet to stop dust sticking.”

Tumble dryer sheets help to reduce static, which means the dust will easily stick to them.

Various different brands can be picked up from the supermarket for as little as £1.

Mrs Hinch even recommends wiping them with some Zoflora to not only disinfect, but to leave a gorgeous smell behind.

Frances Brooks said: “A tumble dryer sheet will attract the dust.”

Justine Rowe added: “Tumble dryer sheets, absolute game changer.”

Using tumble dryer sheets will also not damage window blinds but can only be used on aluminium Venetian blinds or wood.

Michelle Cairns said: “I put wipes around my fingers, spray with cleaner and wipe…really easy.”

Others suggested using a damp microfibre cloth to help the dust stick.

Lucy Matcham wrote: “I leave mine hung up as normal. Close them completely and then run a hot soapy microfibre cloth over the blind side-to-side before turning it the other way and doing the same, comes up great.”

Other’s recommended trying to take them down and placing them in the bath.

Dori Mclovr said: “Just soak in the tub and rinse off.”

Janet Morton wrote: “If you can take them down fully closed, and have a bath, lay them in the bath with warm water and a bit of washing liquid.

“Open them slightly and dunk up and down, you will see the muck coming off, then rinse well with warm water.

“Then I would hang them over a line or drier outside until fully dry.”
