Mrs Hinch rose to fame on social media several years ago when she started sharing cleaning tips and tricks with her followers. The influencer now shares more of her day-to-day life with her four million followers, who often share their own advice on dedicated Facebook pages.
Posting on the Mrs Hinch Cleaning Tips Facebook page, Jen Telfer wrote: “Can anyone recommend how to wash fluffy blankets and keep their fluffiness?”
Using high heat on soft fabrics can cause blankets to turn dry and rough.
Too much detergent can also make fabric stiff, while too little detergent can also be a problem.
Cleaning enthusiasts took to the comments to share their top tips with Jen.

Alicia Davis wrote: “I add a capful of white vinegar to my wash, I don’t have a dryer either and my towels are super fluffy. It’s so cheap and versatile to use on everything, can even help to clean the washing machine itself.”
Lorna Taylor commented: “I still use fabric softener but add some white vinegar into the drum itself, it works wonders. Also make sure they are on a hot wash but not too hot as this can make them go dry.”
The acetic acid in the vinegar helps to break down excess detergent and build-up in the towel fibres.
This tends to reduce the absorbency of towels initially and will help them stay nice and fluffy.
