The Mrs Hinch fan accompanied her text with a picture of a radiator with dust inside it.

Interestingly, one tip stood out from the others.

Many Mrs Hinch fans recommended using a product many families already have in their house: a hairdryer.

Louise Brown added: “Hairdryer.”

Racheal Owen said: “Blow it out with a hairdryer, works great.”

Other Mrs Hinch fans explained it’s possible to lift the top of the radiator, making it easier to the clean the inside.

Shelley Jones said: “I’ve got same radiator, at side of radiator there should be like a panel lift it up on both sides and the top comes off (some side panels have screws you need unscrew first and some don’t).”(sic)

Kirsty Charlton wrote: “There is clips that you pull off either side then it all comes off.”(sic)

Martina Beehan warned: “Might be a bit stiff first couple of times you remove it.”

Ken Robinson recommended: “Try pressing down at one end.”

Toria Wilkins explained: “Lift the side panel up and out, then this comes off.”

Helena Watson wrote: “Top grill comes off. I’ve recently found this out. These plastic bits on each side come off if you get your nail underneath, on mine anyway, then take the side panel off by sliding it upwards.”

Other Mrs Hinch fans advised buying long, thin feather dusters to reach the dirt and dust inside the radiator.

Sam Smart wrote: “I bought a long wand which fits down the holes as I couldn’t figure out how to get the top off. That, with the hairdryer trick, works a treat.”

Heidi Raabe’s tip was interesting. She said: “Towel down on floor, and a container under the radiator, then pour hot water mixed with zoflora down the radiator, and cleans it out a treat.

“Plus leaves a lovely smell when heating on.”
