TikToker @Neat.Caroline has amassed over 154,000 followers on TikTok because of her brilliant cleaning skills.

According to her bio, she’s a “pro organizer in NYC.”

She posted a helpful video to her followers filled with some cleaning hacks and tips that might potentially change the way you maintain a spotless home.

The first tip she shares is letting your toilet brush drip off and air dry into the bowl before putting it directly back into its holder right away.

If you immediately put the brush back into its holder after scrubbing the inside of the toilet bowl, it’s going to keep a bunch of unnecessary germs.

The second tip from Caroline is to clean each room from top to bottom. The reason why? Crumbs!

If you clean your furniture from top to bottom, you’ll likely be moving dust, debris, and crumbs straight to the floor.

This way, you can simply finish up your cleaning session by sweeping, vacuuming, and mopping.

The third tip Caroline shares with her followers is to use less laundry detergent per load.

The washing machine will become strained and ultimately leave residue behind on your clothing if too much detergent is added.

According to her, all you really need is a tablespoon. She advises that you double-check your detergent instructions first though.

Depending on the detergent brand you use, this advice might not work for everyone.

Her fourth cleaning tip is to spray cleaning solution directly onto whatever piece of furniture you’re trying to wipe down.

If you spray cleaning solution onto your paper towel or rag before a wipe-down, it could potentially lead to streaky surfaces.

Lastly, Caroline wants everyone to know that simply wiping down stains inside your microwave isn’t a sufficient cleaning job.

Instead, you should microwave a combination of half a cup of vinegar and half a cup of water for about two minutes.

Your microwave will be way easier to clean after doing that thanks to the steam released from the vinegar.

Most people in Caroline’s comment section are super grateful to learn about a handful of new hacks from the cleanliness guru.

One person wrote: “I agree with all except the laundry detergent. I need more than a tablespoon.”
