Fans of the blogger use the comments of her social media platforms to regularly discuss their own cleaning finds, with one fan sharing her discovery that costs her only 40p a night, reports The Express.
Posting on the Mrs Hinch Cleaning Tips Facebook page, Tina Hall looked to her peers for advice.
She posted: “Please tell me how to stop getting window condensation?
“We open the window but there is condensation every day. I now have damp moisture in each room.”
Group members commented on the post, sharing their advice with Tina.
Victoria Tyrell said: “We bought a dehumidifier for our house because of awful condensation creating mould around the windows.
“It wasn’t cheap but it’s amazing!
“We don’t have the problem at all anymore, I was amazed at how it was sorted from the first night. Would 100 percent recommend.”
Catherine Lee added: “I have left windows open all year, made no difference. I purchased two dehumidifiers that cost over £200, they help.
“Costs 40p a night to run.”
Sharon Graham said: “Get vents fitted, it’ll keep the condensation away but not make the room really cold.
“Also buy a dehumidifier and let it run to clear condensation.”
Dehumidifiers help to remove water from the air, which can settle on windows, as well as help remove musty odours.
Whilst other fans recommended keeping the heating down and ventilating the room more, dehumidifiers can reduce the risk of mould and mildew building up.
They can be purchased from various different retailers, including Amazon.
