As TikTok continues to rise in popularity, particularly throughout lockdown; we wanted to look at some of the top spring cleaning hacks featured on the app.
Spring is the perfect time to reorganise your home, declutter and also carry out a deep clean. Wondering where to start? Here are some top tips from some of the biggest TikTok ‘cleaning influencers’.
When it comes to keeping your bed sheets clean and germ-free, most people just remove their bedding and pop it into the washing machine, but not on TikTok!
One of the most viral cleaning hacks of this year is laundry stripping, which involves people leaving their bedding, clothing and any other soft-furnishing items in a bath-full of detergent to remove dirt and bacteria. The result is usually super clean sheets and a not so clean bath..
Try this hack with your towels, pillows and any other items you wish to give a deep clean!

Bed Making Hacks
Making your bed can require a lot of effort and energy, so we’re always open to anything that speeds up and simplifies this process. While TikTok is home to many cleaning hacks, it also provides some useful content to help you change your bed sheets in minimal time.
@_forthehome shared a TikTok that went viral showing how you can change your duvet cover in just a few minutes. Follow the below steps to try it for yourself.
Step one: Lay out your duvet cover inside out on top of your bed
Step two: Lay your duvet on top of the cover
Step three: Start from the closed end of the duvet cover and roll up your duvet and cover together into a ‘sausage’ shape until you reach the end of your bed
Step four: Hold either end of the ‘sausage’ and hold the duvet and side of the cover closest to it, flip the other side of the cover outwards and around the ‘sausage’. Your duvet cover should now be the right side out around the ‘sausage’.
Step five: Do up the buttons and unroll the ‘sausage’ and your bed is complete!
