I tried this TikTok bathroom cleaning hack and it actually works


TikTok seems to be the go-to place for quick and easy cleaning hacks. Some are genius ideas while others are not so much. But one thing is for sure, bathroom cleaning tricks are gaining momentum, and many want their tubs and faucets to be squeaky clean without elbow grease.

If you’re spending way too much money on bathroom cleaning products that don’t do the job, this TikTok hack just might be your answer.

The TikTok video in question posted by Carolina McCauley shows us that you can easily deep clean your bathroom by following these four simple steps. Plus, it won’t even cost you anything.

How to deep clean your bathroom in four steps

1. Start by cleaning your faucets. To do this, soak a few towels or tea towels in white vinegar for a few minutes. Next, place rags over your bathroom faucets, wrapping them around to stay in place.

2. Pour a small cup full of baking soda down your drain followed by white vinegar. Together, this will sparkle and create a chemical reaction that works well to deodorize your drain and get rid of any clogs. (And be sure to check out our guide on how to unclog a drain without a piston).

3. Then it’s time to tackle the tub. Sprinkle baking soda all over the tub, making sure all surfaces are covered. Follow this by pouring dish soap over the baking soda in the tub. Then clean the tub with a soft sponge and lukewarm water from your tap. If you have a shower door, read our guide on how to clean a glass shower door to remove lime scale and stains.

4. Finally, rinse your bath completely so that there are no traces or soap residue. Now is a good time to remove those soaked towels from your faucets. You should now have a spotless tub and shiny faucets. Has your shower seen better days? Here’s how to clean a shower head.
