FANS of the cleanfluencer Mrs Hinch have taken it to social media to share their tips on getting patio tiles sparkling like new.
With the UK expecting a dazzling 26C heatwave this week, most will be looking to bask in the sun and enjoy the lovely weather with a few drinks and a barbeque.
But before keen summer lovers head out to soak up the sun with their friends and family, it's time to spruce up your patio which might be looking a bit tired after the cold winter months.
If you're amongst those whose patio could do with a bit of love and care, Mrs Hinch fans have revealed their top suggestions to getting the tiles clean, The Express reported.
Mrs Hinch, whose real name is Sophie Hinchliffe, 32, has long been a favourite amongst fellow cleaning enthusiasts, with close to 4.5 million followers on Instagram.
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.
