HQ cleans up with Insta-star Crombie's tidying guide

HQ will publish Instagram star Lynsey Crombie's household cleaning guide.

How to Clean Your House… And Tidy Up Your Life by Lynsey Crombie will be published in hardback, e-book and audio on 21st March 2019.

Crombie was a regular cast member on Channel 4’s “Obsessive Compulsive Cleaners” and now runs a successful business and blog, as well as sharing her quick and easy cleaning tips with her 100k Instagram followers. She receives hundreds of messages per day looking for help with everyday cleaning questions, and this book will answer them all, according to the publisher.

“Featuring her make-at-home cleaning products, easy organisation methods and all her recommendations for toxic-free and eco-friendly products, this book is the ultimate guide to keeping on top of your house, and enjoying yourself while you do it,” HarperCollins said.

Celia Lomas, assistant editor at HarperCollins, negotiated the deal for HQ with Tim Bates and Tessa David at PFD.

Lomas said: “Lynsey is such a brilliant asset to the HQ list. Her energy, enthusiasm and encyclopaedic knowledge mean there is no one better placed to write this book. Never before has cleaning been so simple, stress-free and, I never thought I’d say it, but also fun.”

Crombie said: “I’m so excited to be releasing my first book with the fabulous HQ and HarperCollins teams. Writing a book about cleaning, which I am truly passionate about, is a dream come true for me. I just want to make cleaning fun and less of a chore. I also want to show my readers that when you’re feeling a little low, picking up that mop and whizzing around for five minutes can really help lift your mood and improve your day.”
