A tidying revolution has gripped the world.

After Tidying Up with Marie Kondo launched on Netflix this month, people around the world have been inspired to clean up and scale down on their possessions.

The trend was felt strongest by opshops, with many inundated with more donations than they could handle.

But while Marie Kondo has everyone talking, she isn't the only cleaning superstar. 

'Cleanfluencers' have become big on social media, with people racking up millions of followers as they show off their cleaning obsessions. 

The news had Andrew Dickens bemoaning about the real burden cleaning out can have on people, and many talkback callers were in agreement.
