TikTok has become a hub for creative cleaning hacks that can make your spring cleaning tasks easier and more efficient. Here are some popular TikTok cleaning hacks that have gained traction and can help you breeze through your cleaning routine:
Dusting Blinds with Socks
Attach a sock to each end of a pair of kitchen tongs and use them to dust your blinds. This method allows you to reach tight spaces and effectively remove dust from the blinds.
Dusting Baseboards and Trim with Dryer Sheets
Use dryer sheets to clean your baseboards. Not only will they remove dust, but the residue left behind can also help repel further dust buildup.
Use a hairdryer to heat up the adhesive on stickers and gently lift one corner with a knife or sharp object to peel them off without leaving residue or damaging the surface.
Removing Pet Hair with Rubber Gloves
Put on a rubber dish glove and run your hand over surfaces covered in pet hair. The hair will stick to the glove and can be easily removed.
Cleaning Stained Plastic Containers
Add warm water, dishwashing liquid, and a couple of pieces of paper towel to a stained plastic container. Screw on the lid and shake vigorously for a minute. The container should come out looking clean and fresh.
Extra Sudsy Floor Scrub
Vacuum the floor first, then pour a capful of cleaning product directly onto the floor. Scrub with a moist sponge and wipe away the excess soap with paper towels.
Steam Clean Your Microwave
Mix dishwashing detergent with water and microwave the mixture for four minutes. The steam will loosen dirt and food particles, making it easy to wipe them away with a towel.
Cleaning a Kitchen Sink Drain
Pour baking soda down the drain, followed by dish soap. Scrub with a toothbrush, then pour vinegar down the drain to create a foaming reaction. Finish by pouring hot water down the drain.
Fill your washing machine with clothes, add baking soda and vinegar, and run a hot water rinse cycle. Let the clothes sit in the machine for four hours before completing the wash cycle.
Removing Tarnish from Cutlery using Aluminum Foil
Place a ball of aluminum foil in the cutlery tray of your dishwasher and run a regular cycle. The reaction between the foil and dishwashing detergent will help remove tarnish from the silverware.
