Professional cleaners and organisers have already made our cleaning routines more efficient and effective with the handy tips and hacks they’ve shared on TikTok.
From dusting first to all the things we can clean with vinegar, #CleanTok has a wealth of information.
Now professional organiser Caroline Solomon has revealed six more secret tips you might not know about, and they’re sure to make your home look even more clean and tidy.

Caroline shared these tips in a recent TikTok video and claims her advice will make you cleaning “better, faster, stronger”.
The first tip is all about getting every single crumb and streak wiped off your kitchen counter. These bits can be hard to see while standing up but if you crouch down and look across the bench at eye-level you’ll be able to spot anything you missed.
Caroline’s second tip is for anyone who uses a microfibre cloth for cleaning.
“Wipe down surfaces with the rough side, then buff dry with the soft side,” she said before showing off her streak free bathroom mirror.
Next the New Yorker reminded us to dust the objects we’ve removed from counters and vanities before putting them back, instead of putting a dusty container on a clean surface.
“And when putting items back, line them up neatly against the wall to keep a streamlined look,” she added.

Caroline also suggested you start using a microfibre dust mop because they are brilliant for picking up dust and dirt. Regularly using a microfibre dust mop will also mean you don’t have to mop as often — and that’s something we’d all love to avoid where possible.
For her sixth and final tip Caroline warned her followers to be careful which scrub they use to clean surfaces. If you are cleaning a delicate surface, make sure you’re using a soft scrub as a rough one can cause damage.
Caroline’s followers loved the advice almost as much as they loved the cameos her cat made in the video.
They did raise some questions though, with one viewer unsure about the microfibre cloth tip because her cloth has the same texture on both sides.
“Not all have two textures,” Caroline responded to the comment. “But you can still use that technique with microfibers that have the same texture both sides.”

There was also interest in the dust mop, and a question about how often we need to give our floors a good old-fashioned mop.
“Once every one to two weeks depending on how dusty your space is and whether you wear shoes indoors,” Caroline said.
