EVERYONE knows how frustrating it can be when there are places in the house that you want to clean but you can’t get to them properly.
Now, a cleaning expert has unveiled an ingenious and cheap hack that will completely transform your cleaning routine and make stubborn areas reachable once and for all.
Aesthetically In Home, a cleaning and home TikTok account with 13,200 followers and counting, shared a video showing how using two unlikely household items together is just the right thing.
It shows how a toothpick can be wrapped tightly in a sheet of kitchen roll and then used to clean undersides, such as the gap between a cooktop and a kitchen counter.
They explain: “Toothpicks and paper towels are the best combination for hard-to-clean areas.”
The clip, which has been liked more than 8,000 times, then demonstrates how the tip of the toothpick picks up previously untouchable dirt that rubs off on the kitchen roll.
Cleaning fans were quick to share their relief at being able to refresh parts of their kitchen and other rooms in their home that they had previously neglected.
One captioned the post: “Ahh thanks for this trick.” While a second added: “Omg thanks!”
Others said that they are a fan of the hack and that they also use different household items to achieve the same effect.
One social media user said, “I use expired credit cards.” Another suggested, “Butter knife and tea towel.”
Meanwhile, several other followers of the helpful account have shared the tips and tricks they’ve gleaned over the years.
Countless said they’ve used a toothbrush to clean spaces that ordinary cleaning tools can’t reach.
One said: “Cheap toothbrushes work so well around the faucet or in the fridge door.”
Another agreed, commenting, “I buy packs of toothbrushes from the dollar store to clean fiddly stuff.”
