I’m one of those people who enjoy cleaning. I find it really therapeutic and love nothing more than getting the Zoflora out! Well, other than reading, that is. I didn’t even know about Mrs Hinch until a few months ago, but since I found out about her, I’ve loved keeping an eye on her insta!

Now, before reading this, I was far from being a major hincher. But I still loved trying out her tips around the house.

When I saw this book was coming out, I knew I wanted it, but it wasn’t a ‘omg I NEED it’, it was more of a ‘well that could be good’. So I didn’t preorder it and I also didn’t buy it as soon as it hit the shelves. Instead, I spotted it half price while I was at Sainsbury’s one Sunday, and decided to take the plunge.

I read the whole book on that same day.

Honestly, I loved it! There’s a lot in there about Mrs Hinch herself as well as plenty of cleaning tips! I didn’t even realise that I was halfway through until I put the book down for some food!

Now, a few weeks after reading the book, I’m going to admit it – I’m addicted to Hinching! Fair enough, I used to clean a lot before this book came into my life, but now I spend almost every day off work cleaning, and I love it.

The lists in Hinch Yourself Happy are so useful, and I’ve bought so many things she has recommended and fallen in love with them. I love that in the book, there’s recommendations on what to use, sorted by room and task. It turns the book into an easy reference point for anything cleaning related, and I’ve already gone back to it quite a few times to double check what I should be using.

I’d definitely recommend this book to anyone – whether you’re a clean freak like me, or if you tend to shy away from cleaning. There’s plenty in here to learn from, for anyone.

  1. I am torn between enjoying Mrs Hinch’s content – I do totally see why people love her – and being worried by how many chemicals she uses! I think in a time when a lot of us are trying to use more eco-friendly and cruelty free cleaning products, the popularity of Mrs Hinch has put us back a step.

    1. To be honest, I’ve been thinking about this a lot lately! Where I can, I tend to use things with less chemicals – such as bicarbonate of soda, but I would like to find more alternatives for other cleaning products. The main thing that worries me rather than the chemicals is the amount of plastic waste! So many containers!
