It's spring, and as many of us contemplate tackling that horrible cluttered wardrobe, tidying our bookshelves, or finally hoovering behind the sofa, Lauren and guests reflect on cleaning and tidying. Writer and podcaster Emma Gannon is feeling good, having just sent 18 bags of unwanted stuff to the charity shop. Laura Humphreys - despite some initial regret over the paleo egg muffin she ate for breakfast - reflects on how Victorian ideas about cleaning still influence us today. Aggie MacKenzie - national cleaning icon for How Clean Is Your House - confesses to some serious lapses; and Aline Lau, organising consultant and European representative of Japanese tidying guru Marie Kondo, reveals how she only ever needs to spend ten minutes tidying up.
