Now that we're heading into spring, it's probably about time to get your cleaning hat gloves on. Whether you turn to influencers or TikTok hacks for your tidying tips, there's a whole host of things we could be doing to give our bedrooms, bathrooms and kitchens a little spruce up.

Some involve household items, and others are all about making your home smell amazing. But before you get the bleach out from under the sink, cleaning expert Lynsey Crombie has revealed the biggest mistake you've probably been making.

While it can be tempting to buy the whole cleaning aisle of the supermarket and take a 'more is more' approach, Lynsey says using excess product could actually be tarnishing your cleaning abilities.

She explained the biggest cleaning mistake people make is "using far too much product. I get people who have layered their floor in so much product, but in reality it just makes it slippery and grimy," the expert said to Cosmopolitan UK at a Vileda and Marigold event.

"Always follow the instructions on the bottle - if it says use a cap full, use a cap full! Don't ever over use products. There's no need, often mibrofibre cloths with water are all you need."

Well that's us told. Less product and more elbow grease seems to be the secret to a shiny home.
