Mrs Hinch shares simple way to clean Shark vacuum and is excited as results make it look ‘brand new’
Mrs Hinch loves her Shark vacuum just like the rest of her Hinch Army, but even she confessed she hasn't had time to give it a service.
The millionaire influencer, who has 3.4m followers on Instagram that dutifully soak up her tips on household cleaning, took them through a detailed step-by-step cleaning process of how to get rid of the dust and dirt build-up.
Revealing the results after the cleaning session, Sophie, 30, was so impressed she hugged her vacuum and said it felt like having a "brand new hoover" again.

Mrs Hinch, whose real name is Sophie Hinchliffe, explained that she had been gifted the Shark DuoClean vacuum last year, which retails from around £179, but wanted to show her followers how she takes care of her treasured appliance.
Which vacuum cleaner to get is one of the most asked questions on Mrs Hinch Facebook fan groups, with many hundreds and thousands urging others to pick up a Shark, so it's only fitting the influencer shared her tips on upkeep.
First up she advised Shark owners to empty the dust cup into the bin, sharing a look at her own Shark saying it needed a clean "inside and out" including the pre-motor filter.
The mum-of-one said the Shark pre-motor filter only needs cleaning once a month, before she carefully took it apart unclipping the plastic covering.
"Remove cover lid and slide off the foam filter. Rinse both with warm water. (Do not use soap, lukewarm water only. Allow filters to air dry completely before returning them into the vacuum)," she explained.
Mrs Hinch, who lives with her husband Jamie and son Ronnie, said that she then uses a slightly damp cloth to wipe the insides of the filter.
She shared an extra tip: "I even got my sonic scrubber out (I used it dry) to tackle the hard to reach places, I didn't want one bit of dust left in there."
Next up was the brush roll of the vacuum which was chocked full of hair and debris, which Mrs Hinch lifted off using the release buttons on either side of the base.
Using a pair of nail scissors, the cleaning expert then snipped away at tangled string that had wrapped itself around the plastic roller.

"Look at mine OOPS I've hardly had the time to hoover let alone clean my hoover, but it's more fun to clean I guess (silver linings)," she wrote in a caption with several crying-laughing emojis.
After removing the build-up Mrs Hinch then explained that you can wash the soft roller but only using water and it must be dry completely before reinserting.
Sophie then returned the brush cover and checked the vacuum wand for any blockages before gathering a bundle of dust and fluff that had come out of her vacuum.
"I'm so excited right now I feel like I have a brand new hoover hope this helped guys, it helped me," she added before showing off the results.
Sharing a picture with her favourite old lady Instagram filter covering her face, Sophie crouched down to hug the appliance writing: "100% realise my knees look like my boobs but who cares… I'm buzzing with my new hoover!"
