In the last two months, the online world has become obsessed with one Instagram account – @mrshinchhome.
Over the course of two weeks, the cleaning account has amassed over a million followers. The Essex native Sophie Hinchcliffe, who regularly names her cleaning products and gives them an accompanying song, is known for her fresh take on cleaning your home and regularly calls herself ‘cleaning mad’.
