Lynsey Crombie, Victoria Retail Park’s spokesperson, who is well-known for her appearance on Channel 4’s Obsessive Compulsive Cleaners and her Instagram hints and tips, said: “The survey showed that nationally 38.6 million UK adults do a spring clean, which works out as four in five people and that Brits as a whole spend more than 21 days a year cleaning and decluttering their homes.
“With the survey results, it is clear the East Midlands region has been hit by the home organisation craze and with real benefits to people and their mental health. With more than a third of people finding cleaning and decluttering therapeutic and a method of relieving stress the trend is definitely set to grow even further across the region”, said Lynsey
