This post is all about cleaning hacks from TikTok.
I have always loved finding good cleaning hacks that make cleaning easier or give a good deep clean. And surprisingly, I have found so many good ones on TikTok. And even beyond the good ideas, it's reminded me about some good cleaning tips that I completely forgot about.
These the are cleaning hacks from TikTok that I use in my cleaning routine and do a really good job at making my space spotless.
I am showing you all the TikTok cleaning hacks that I actually use!
This post is all about Tik Tok cleaning hacks.
BEST TIKTOK CLEANING HACKS:
1. Strip Your Clothes In The Tub
(this was the after!!! gross)
Stripping your clothes is a new found hack that I'm kind of obsessed with. I've done it a few times now and it still amazes me! Stripping your clothes removes sunk-in smells, hard water build up and things that laundry just can't seem to get out.
What you'll need:
- Baking Soda
- Powdered Laundry Detergent
- Recently Laundered sheets, clothing, etc. (whatever you want to wash)
You just fill the tub with hot water, add 1/2 cup of detergent, 1/4 cup of baking soda and borox, and then stir that up. Then add your clothes and let them soak for a few hours.
For those wondering, I have done this with my Lululemon clothing and it's worked great and didn't ruin it!
2. Use Baking Soda & Vinegar To Clean Sink
Recreate this cleaning hack:
This cleaning hack will make your metal sink insanely clean and it uses super inexpensive ingredients.
What you'll need:
- Baking Soda
- Distilled White Vinegar
- Spray Bottle (optional)
All you need to do is sprinkle the baking soda around your sink. Then you'll take a damp sponge and rub it all around. The baking soda basically acts as an exfoliant for your sink so it's going to get all the gunk off. Don't be afraid to put a little muscle in to this step!
The next thing you'll do is spray the vinegar all over the sink. There's some sort of chemical reaction that happens with the baking soda and adds even more exfoliation. Finally, just rinse with water, and your sink should be sparkling clean!
3. You Can Take Off The Top Of Your Toilet!
Okay, how did I not know about this?! You can easily take off the top of your toilet!
All you do is turn the knobs at the top (it might say locked/unlocked, at least mine did!) and it easily pops off! This makes cleaning so much easier and lets you really get under there.
4. WD-40 For Stainless Steel Appliances
Recreate this hack:
I am super impressed by this one and will definitely be using. It eliminates fingerprints on your stainless steal appliances for up to 2 WEEKS.
All you need is WD-40 and a microfiber cloth. Just spray it on there and buffer it out and your stainless steel appliances will be spotless!
5. Take The Cap Off Your Swiffer Bottle
I've been a long time user of Swiffer but would always get frustrated that the cleaning bottle would be used up so quickly and the refills are so expensive.
SO I found this hack that allows you to open it up and refill it with whatever cleaning product you want! It saves so much money and eliminates the waste of getting a new one each time.
What you'll need to do is heat up some water in a mug or bowl, and place the bottle with the cap first and let it sit for 10-20 seconds. Then you should be able to get the cap off and be able to refill the bottle!
6. Clean Your Drain With Lemon + Ice
This TikTok cleaning hack is how to clean out your disposal while also sharpening the blades. To do this, add ice and a few slices of lemon (or lemon extract if you don't have fresh lemon on hand).
Don't turn your water on and then put the disposal on. The ice will clear any food down there while also sharpening the blades and the lemon will make it smell nice and fresh.
7. Add Lemon Extract To A Cotton Ball To Make Your Trash Smell Good
This is how I make my rooms smell extra good.. by making the trash smell good!
I add a few drops of essential oil to a cotton ball and throw it in my trash. This will instantly make your rooms smell better - I use this in my kitchen too!
That wraps up all the best cleaning hacks I've discovered on TikTok.
I really do use these in my cleaning routine and they have made my apartment look so clean and smell amazing. There's a lot of hacks on TikTok that are really cool but you'll probably never use them, BUT these are the ones I continue to use all of the time.
