Meet the 16-year-old ‘Mrs Hinch’ who loves spending five hours a DAY cleaning – and even spends her pocket money on products.
Hannah Rhodes started helping her mum clean their home two years ago – and it became a ‘hobby’ when she quickly realised she loved doing it.
Now she likes nothing more than polishing the bath taps and scrubbing the kitchen floor, and even spends her pocket money on cleaning products.
Hard working Hannah spends up to five hours a day scrubbing, mopping and wiping.
She’s a huge fan of Mrs Hinch – an influencer from Essex whose passion for cleaning has gained her millions of social media followers.
Hannah has even launched her own social media account where she talks about cleaning, and already has 4,000 followers who tune in for her daily tips and videos.
The teenager from Middlesbrough, North Yorkshire, who dreams of running her own cleaning business, said: “I just love the satisfaction at the end when everything is shiny and all tiny.
“I prefer to spend my pocket money wisely on new products from B&M and Home Bargains that I then post about on my Instagram account.
“I Iove how cleaning keeps my mental health stable as I clean to take my mind off of things.
“I love that cleaning can keep me from being bored and it passes the time.”
Hannah first got into cleaning when she was 14 years old, helping her mum around the house tidying and cleaning.
She used to spend around £10 a week on products but now she has a good collection it’s around £6.
She had always wanted to create her own Instagram account inspired by Mrs Hinch but didn’t want to be distracted from completing her GCSEs.
After her school was closed in March 2020 and her exams were cancelled due to Covid-19, Hannah decided it was time to share her love of cleaning with Instagram.
She said: “I wanted to be productive and bring something positive out of lockdown and do something I had been wanting to do for ages.
“I decided to make my own cleaning account on Instagram and work on it through lockdown and keep our home even cleaner with coronavirus being around.
“Within one month, I had 2,000 followers – it just grew so fast!”
Hannah posts about cleaning products she has bought with her pocket money and dreams of reaching the heights of Mrs Hinch’s success.
After making a video with other cleaning fans voicing their support for Mrs Hinch, Hannah has even become friends with the famous Instagram mum.
Hannah said: “Mrs Hinch has massively inspired me and she’s been so nice and supportive of my Instagram account.
“My older sister Katie told me about Mrs Hinch and I think when I began to follow her, my love for cleaning got really strong and I spent my free time cleaning.
“I have some friends I’ve made through cleaning and we put a video together for her to help her as she gets a lot of trolls and she saw it and asked to be added to our group chat to thank us all!
“Mrs Hinch always says how proud she is of us and no matter how tough things get to keep on going because she can see potential in everyone.
“She tells us just to be ourselves and no one else, and she also comments on my photos sometimes too!”
After lockdown, Hannah plans to study childcare at Middlesbrough College in September but hopes to turn her passion for cleaning into a business in the future.
She said: “I would definitely hope to have my own cleaning business in the future!
“I would love for my love of cleaning to turn into a job and hopefully a successful business one day!
“I really do have a passion and want to turn it into a business so hopefully I can!
“I have a goal to try get 10,000 followers by my one year on instagram, that is my dream.”
