The star rose to fame a few years ago with various home hacks and now her fans have even started dedicated cleaning pages on social media.

In one such group, Mrs Hinch Cleaning tips and tricks on Facebook, a member sought advice: “Hi can anyone help how I get this rust off the stainless steel. Thanks.”

Fortunately to the author – and fellow homeowners who struggle with rust ruining appliances and surfaces – the post was soon inundated with responses.
