2. Drain clearing hack
There’s just one word to describe blocked drains — nasty! Hair, dirt and grime can lead to blockages and awful smells. In the moment, you may be tempted to use dangerous chemicals to clear the drain yourself… or if you’re more cautious to call a plumber.

3. Whiter clothes with white vinegar tip
It’s tricky keeping your clothes bright and white. But, TikTok user Liz (@LizLuxeHome) has an inexpensive, natural trick of using white vinegar instead of fabric softener. She says it helps whiten, soften and brighten your clothes. This hack also has the benefit of reducing odours. Win win!
Note: Some washing machine brands advise against using white vinegar in your machine.
4. Easy mattress cleaning tip
You may think cleaning your sheets every week may be enough, but mattresses absorb everything from your sweat to dead skin. Gross, we know! In addition to your weekly linen wash, it’s recommended to deep clean your mattress 1-2 times a year.
You’ll find plenty of videos online showing different methods of deep cleaning a mattress, some ranging from half an hour to 24 hours. But our fave is this one by TikToker Jessica Haizman’s (@jessicahaizman). Watch the quick video below to see her quick and natural deep clean process using only bi-carb and eucalyptus oil.
5. Minimise glass streaks hack
Streaks can be the bane of any clean, leaving messy lines all over your glass surfaces. Here, Chantel (@Mama_Mila_) shares her surprising hack to bring that shine to your glass, mirrors, and appliances. Using only two microfibre clothes and a pump of shaving cream, it’s a cleaning hack we’re keen to try.
6. Bring back your old bathtub with this hack
Whether your bath is where you go to wash off the day, or relax for half an hour twice a year, bathtubs can be a struggle to keep clean. Body oils and dirt can stain your bathtub. As a result, they can become hard to scrub clean. Below, TikToker Carolina (@carolina.mccauley) shares her bathtub cleaning routine that only needs vinegar, baking soda, and dish soap.
