Sometimes, a cultural phenomenon arrives at so apt a moment that it feels inevitable. In the case of Marie Kondo, this certainly seems to apply. As we approach the end of a decade in which buying stuff became as easy as the click of a mouse, we find ourselves overwhelmed by our possessions.

BBC Radio 4 - Woman's Hour

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, the first certified KonMari consultant in London reveals how she only ever needs to spend ten minutes tidying up.
