Online cleaning sensation Mrs Hinch has revealed her insider tips to making your bed look perfect each morning...

Online cleaning queen Sophie Hinchliffe - or Mrs Hinch to her followers - has revealed her bed-making secrets on her Instagram page.

But this post from the social media sensation has a bit of a twist, because for the first time she has got her husband, Jamie Hinchliffe, lending a hand.

Jamie has shown the nation that it’s not just his wife who is a dab hand at homemaking, but that he has also got the knack to making a showroom-worthy bed. But let’s face it, he has learnt from the best.

Mrs Hinch’s husband has sent her followers into a frenzy with his bed-making technique with everyone commenting on what a good job he made. Apparently the technique is easy - it is all in the straight lines and cushion chopping!

In the video he tells Mrs Hinch’s followers, affectionately known as ‘Hinchers’, how it is done: 'One of the most important parts is the tucking in. The duvet must be tucked into the bed frame.

'Once the pillows are plumped they must be in a straight line, and the throw needs to be an inch from the floor, and also in a straight line.'

But the technique doesn’t end there. There is then a second throw that goes on the end of the bed, this time a soft, grey, furry one. He then ‘chops’ the pillows in the middle to make them into a ‘v’ shape at the top, before lining everything up at right angles.

Mrs Hinch’s handy tips don’t end at bed-making. She has also revealed that if you want to get your kitchen sink gleaming then all you need is some fabric softener.

According to the cleaning guru, by adding a capful of fabric softener to the sink while the plug is in, then pouring a kettle-full of boiling water on top you’re well on your way to a shiny sink.

Just leave for four hours while topping up with freshly boiled water occasionally, and by the time you let the water out, your sink will be sparkling.
