Cleaning: Lynsey Crombie Queen of Clean 's two must have products – 'cheap as chips'

Lynsey Crombie gives her cleaning hacks on Instagram, where she boasts a whopping 246k followers. She recently advised Britons exactly what they should be buying from the supermarket when speaking with Express.co.uk.

The cleaning aisle can be bamboozling, a fact the cleaning expert recognises.

She said: “If you go to any supermarket, you go down the aisle and there’s everything.

“There’s pink bottles, blue bottles, green bottles. And you know what?

“The consumer gets sucked into this and feels that they need to buy four disinfectants because there are four different colours. You don’t need to do that.

So which products do you really need to keep your house clean and tidy?

“Besides vinegar, washing up liquid is the strongest disinfectant and antibacterial in one, and it’s as cheap as chips,” Lynsey said.

The cleaning expert recently visited NHS Property Services cleaners in a touching moment for the former cleaner and former NHS employee. 

The NHS Property Services (NHSPS) is a provider of over 3,000 non-clinical frontline staff, including cleaners, porters, receptionists, and caterers, all essential parts of the National Health Service.

She described the experience to Express.co.uk and said: “I spoke to six people, one gentleman, and five ladies. One was so lovely to me, she said ‘I use all your lemon tricks.’ She had so much passion for her job.

“It was just lovely to see that they actually really care about the role that they’ve got in the NHS.

“The people who are working in the NHS as cleaners, they enjoy it. They want to be doing it.”

The expert is well known for her cleaning expertise and her books.

Lynsey has written The Easy Life, How to Clean Your Houe and Tidy Up Your Life, The 15-Minute Clean: The quickest way to a sparkling home, and How to Clean Your House at Christmas.

Another pair of influencers have been detailing their travel hacks.

Emma and Alex of Travel Beans told Express.co.uk they find the most beautiful camping sites.

Nature and wildlife lovers, the 33-year-olds converted a campervan last year to enable more travelling as the world deals with the COVID-19 pandemic.

Emma said: “A lot of it’s like word of mouth but you can find views using certain apps and websites that tell you where to go.”

Alex detailed one particular app the couple use to find places to stay overnight.
