Mrs Hinch urges her 'Hinch army' to donate spare cleaning products following coronavirus outbreak

Hinchers, get on board!

Mrs Hinch is here for all our cleaning needs throughout the coronavirus pandemic, whether it's keeping us entertained with her Instagram Stories or helping provide crucial supplies. By now, we've all likely had the surreal experience of walking into a supermarket and finding staple home supplies such as toilet paper and hand soap are entirely sold out. With fears over the virus increasing and people panic-buying certain items, many are having trouble getting their hands on cleaning products, which are more important than ever.

Mrs Hinch is committed to helping those in need during the coronavirus outbreak

The Instagram cleaning sensation - whose real name is Sophie Hinchliffe - has announced she is helping those in need by giving away not one, not even two, but four bags of cleaning products in just one day. And now she is urging her Hinch army to get on board and donate their spare cleaning products, too.

"So Hinchers lets be honest...if anyone has spare cleaning products...its gonna be us! So any spares you have please continue to bag them up and give them to those that need them," Mrs Hinch wrote next to a picture of bags stuffed with Fairy washing up liquid, Zoflora odour remover and disinfectant and Astonish germ clear disinfectant. "This is one of 4 bags I have given away today. Love you guys! And I just wanted to say I'm so proud of you all," she continued. The 30-year-old revealed she plans to share the picture on social media "every day for as long as it's needed" and asked her 3.2 million followers to "please share if you can."

With many concerned about the effects that social distancing may have on people's mental health, perhaps we should be taking a leaf out of Mrs Hinch's book (quite literally) and pull on our rubber gloves. The Essex-born beauty has developed a mass following by sharing regular updates on her tips and tricks to create a sparkling home, and her book Hinch Yourself Happy suggests cleaning eases anxiety. In the book, which has already sold 160k copies, Sophie proposes that following familiar rituals such as hoovering and polishing brings about a sense of control and accomplishment, as well as taking your mind off daily stressors.
