Mrs Hinch, get dancing! Spotify reveals the best songs to clean to

These are the biggest housework hits of all time

With the help of Mrs Hinch and Marie Kondo, cleaning has become less of a chore, more of a hobby. Perhaps for the idea that we’re not alone (@mrshinchhome now has over 3m Instagram followers, and there’s almost 200k posts tagged #MrsHinchHome by people showing their own homes after using her hacks), or for the fact that our new knowledge makes the process both easier and more effective (recent hacks include storing clothes side-by-side as opposed to on top of one another, and brushing carpets with a shower squeegee), it’s safe to say that we are no longer entirely opposed to cleaning. Another thing that has been helping us get the job done is a good playlist.
