If you haven’t discovered #CleanTok yet, this viral hashtag is where you can find TikTokers sharing extremely satisfying deep-cleaning videos, clever cleaning hacks, and unique tools or products. The #CleanTok trend is bound to come in handy with flu and cold season around the corner. And while being in the age of the COVID-19 pandemic, users worldwide are acutely aware of the need for sanitization. As we continue to battle the virus, the cleaning side of TikTok provides entertainment and education for those looking to deep clean like they never have before. Whatever you need hacks for, #CleanTok has got you covered. There’s a reason why this viral hashtag has 17.6 billion views and counting!
Let’s take a look at the top cleaning trends and products emerging from #CleanTok.
Viral TikTok Cleaning Trends
If you’ve spent time on TikTok, you’ve probably seen the laundry stripping trend. This process involves soaking your dirty laundry in a mixture of products for a long period of time to remove dirt, stains, and product buildup. Many TikTokers swear by this tactic and say it works on towels, bedding, rugs, clothing, and even furniture fabric.
Cleaning The Washing Machine
Did you know that you are supposed to wash your washing machine? Well, it’s true. And the results are pretty shocking.
Not only are you supposed to clean the inside of the washer, but you are also supposed to clean out the filter to your washer. Yes, your washer has a filter that probably hasn’t been touched since you bought it or moved into your home, if you’re anything like me. If you didn’t know this, don’t feel bad. This trick was an unknown tip for millions of users.
Soaking Wooden Utensils
You know that wooden utensil that has been in your family for years that you usually give a basic cleaning? Well… it turns out that it’s probably filled with a bunch of gunk! One trend on TikTok was encouraging users to soak their wooden utensils in boiling water in order to draw out hidden gunk. What used to be a seemingly clean utensil usually leads to some pretty nasty water.
Since you now know how to properly clean a wooden utensil, you can invest in some new kitchen tools from brands on RangeMe such as BergHOFF or Regent Products. Or if you are looking for a cleaner one-time-use utensil option, you can invest in some disposable wooden utensils from Woodable.
“Clean With Me” Videos
If you love before and after videos, this trend is perfect for you! These TikToks invite viewers to watch every step of their cleaning process and admire the transformation of a space from dirty to pristine. These posts usually show clever cleaning hacks and great product recommendations as well. Plus, not only are these videos extremely satisfying, but they are also highly motivational!
Perhaps one of the most popular trends in the genre is cleaning toilets with as many products as possible. This fun and colorful trend involves stacking multiple cleaning products into your toilet bowl and mixing them together for the ultimate clean. While it may be fun to watch, I don’t recommend performing this at home since mixing random chemicals can create a gas that can be highly toxic!
Viral TikTok Cleaning Products
The Pink Stuff
A popular #CleanTok find is a little product called The Pink Stuff. This all-purpose cleaning paste originated in the U.K. and has been used by TikTokers worldwide to clean pretty much everything. White shoes, dirty sinks, outdoor furniture, grout, and so much more. This tutorial will teach you how to use the viral product on your kitchen sink drain.
The Scrub Daddy
An original Shark Tank product that blew up was the Scrub Daddy Sponge set. The CleanTok community is obsessed, and I am too. These smiley sponges can be used on multiple types of surfaces, and users love that the sponge stays firm in cold water and softens up in warm water. The life value of these sponges is much higher than most, with the ability to smell fresh for up to two months.
Bissel Little Green Machine
As mentioned in my last TikTok article, the Bissel Little Green Portable Carpet Cleaner is still taking over wallets and keeping Bissel’s stock empty. You may think that the wine spill from last weekend or that old pet stain might be permanent, but after watching some reviews, you’ll know anything is possible with this machine.
About 11.38 million Americans adopted pets during the pandemic, which of course, means a lot of shedding fur. The ChomChom roller can be used on any surface to pick up lint, hair, and dirt. Unlike a lint roller, it doesn’t use adhesives or sticky tape, so there’s nothing to be replaced. You simply empty it and admire that your couch, bed, carpet, or wherever you use it, is hair-free!
Bar Keeper’s Friend
If your pans, sinks, or dishes have some rusted stains of shame, Bar Keeper’s Friend is the perfect solution for you. For adamant, tough stains, #CleanTok is a huge fan of Bar Keeper’s Friend. It cleans a multitude of surfaces like stainless steel, china, brass, copper, tiles, grout, and chrome.
If there is one thing we have learned over the past year, it’s that you can never be too clean. Spring cleaning was, quite literally, so last season and all-year cleaning is so in. Once again, the power of TikTok shines, somehow turning our least favorite activity into one of the most captivating topics for billions of people.
