Who would have thought that the biggest trend for A/W18 would be cleaning the house and sharing tips all over Instagram? The social media style of Mrs Hinch has captured our hearts and inspired the nation to ensure they spruce up their homes in time for everyone’s favourite holiday – Christmas.
Taking inspiration from the “Hinching” trend, Kobold shares its favourite fast cleaning hacks to help customers ensure that Christmas goes without, well... a Hinch!
Don’t skip out on your skirting boards
A house can be completely spotless, with plush, freshly vacuumed carpets and primly plumped cushions, but dusty doorways and skirting boards can certainly dull down the shine. Warm soapy water and a cloth often does the trick, but can leave unwanted fluff and streaks if the soap sets too quickly. Before washing down skirting boards, give them a quick Kobold vacuum, or a tickle with a feather duster.
Everything including the kitchen sink
The Hinch Army loves a clean sink, it must be germ-free and the star of the kitchen. Zoflora disinfectant has been flying off the shelves this year thanks to its fresh lemon scent, and Sonic Scrubbers has seen a huge uplift in sales as the UK tackle stubborn grime nestled around taps and plugs.
Deep clean for a dreamy sleep
For those who have guests staying over for the holidays, ensuring that the spare bed is germ-free is key – particularly if there are pets around who like to claim it as their own! Mattresses should be treated just as importantly as carpets, as they build up a collection of dust, dead skin and bugs in the same way a carpet might! Vacuuming your mattress with the Kobold VK200’s mattress cleaning kit regularly can ensure dirt build up doesn’t happen, but it’s a good idea to dry clean your mattress before guests come to stay.
An oldie... but a goldie!
The Hinch Army’s commitment to spending 30 minutes cleaning per day is one to take note of. When cleaning gets left at the bottom of a to-do list for too long, it becomes an overwhelming task which requires maximum effort. Clean as you go is the go-to golden rule, preventing a build up of dust, dirt and grime and ensuring that your home truly sparkles this season. Or for an easy alternative, grab yourself a Kobold VR300 and let the robot do all the work for you!
More life, less work
Sticking to the golden 30-minute rule is simple when you have a helping hand. Rope partners or children into running around the house with a feather duster, or putting away clothes whilst you focus on the nitty gritty. Ensuring you’re surrounded by the right type of kit, whether that’s disinfectant, sponges or tech, Kobold’s 130 years of expertise is here to help you.
