Mrs Hinch rose to fame after sharing clever cleaning tips and product recommendations online and on TV. The cleaning influencer now has over 4.5 million followers on Instagram and has authored several books. Inspired by the cleaning guru, fans of hers now regularly take to Facebook pages dedicated to sharing cleaning tips and hacks with one another. One of these hacks includes a 29p method of achieving “softer than ever” towels.

Posting on Mrs Hinch Cleaning Tips Facebook page, one woman asked for advice on how to “soften up” her towels.

Loretta Harper wrote: “Can anyone share how to soften up towels when washing them please?”

Eventually even the best towels can become stiff, scratchy and not very absorbent.

Towels can become hard after washing them if they build up soapy residue and are over-dried.

In this case, you may have to rely on a second wash with white vinegar.

This acidic ingredient can be picked up from supermarkets such as Asda and Tesco for 29p.

To dry towels, Mrs Hinch fans suggest drying them outside, then adding to the tumble dryer to finish.

Anne Ambler said: “I hang mine out until nearly dry then pop them in the drier. It always makes them lovely and soft.”

Carol Barber commented: “Dry on the line then finish in the tumble dryer with two ice cubes. Works every time.”
