Wipe Walls With Ease

@lifeonwillowcreek What’s your favorite cleaning hack? #cleaninghacks #lifehack #cleantok #house #SummerMashup ♬ original sound – Morgan | DIY & Home Renovation

Baseboards are often one of the most overlooked places to clean around your home, even if regularly sweep and mop your floors. One of our favourite baseboard cleaning hacks is to use a dryer sheet to remove any dust or scuff marks. Dusting with dryer sheets coats the baseboards in the sheets’ anti-static residue, making it harder for dust to cling to these surfaces.

Of all the TikTok cleaning hacks we’ve seen, this shower scrubbing trick is by far one of the most memorable. Cleaning your tub and shower walls can seem like a daunting process. This TikToker advises doing just a little each day. Easily keep your shower spotless by adding Dawn dish wash and cleaning vinegar to a soap dispensing dish brush. Leave this in your shower and take a couple minutes during your shower to clean the floor, door or wall. The cleaning pro behind this video suggests giving the area a quick scrub while you’re doing tasks that take time, like waiting for a hair mask to set in. You can also just give your shower a quick 5-minute scrub just before exiting.

Scrub Daddy is King 

@nottheworstcleaner Reply to @its_acm ⚠️ Warning ⚠️ @scrubdaddy is addictive, proceed with caution 😋 #scrubdaddy #cleantok #fypシ ♬ original sound – Nottheworstcleaner

Scrub Daddy’s aren’t regular cleaning sponges. Scrub Daddy’s don’t hold onto mildew odours, they last longer and they change texture based on your cleaning needs. Hot water makes the Scrub Daddy soft (perfect for washing dishes) while running it under cold water makes them stiff (ideal for scrubbing stuck-on stains).
