There are moments when you find yourself mindlessly scrolling on TikTok looking at the videos of dogs doing tricks or playing with cats—or just plain looking adorable—only to look at the time and realize you’ve been watching videos for the last two hours. Oops! And then there are times that you see something actually useful on TikTok that is a total game-changer. The social media platform has showcased so many viral products that are genius hacks and tools for cooking, beauty… you name it. However, some of my favorite finds have to be the ones that can help me tidy up my place with little to no effort on my end (so I can spend more time on TikTok, of course). I’m talking about CleanTok, and if you’ve wandered over to this side of TikTok before, you know there are some truly incredible products that everyone should have in their household.
I mean, why do double the work when you can simply purchase a product that will get the job done quicker and probably more effectively than you would have on your own? Not only does CleanTok provide some truly satisfying cleaning videos, but once you go down the rabbit hole you’ll see that cleaning can actually be fun—when you have the right products, that is. Below, we’ve rounded up some of the incredibly useful TikTok cleaning products that will make cleaning your home so much easier.

The 360º rotatable design makes it easy to reach any tricky corner without you having to struggle, a dream!

ChomChom Pet Hair Remover
Sure, you might love to cuddle with your furry friend on your bed or on the couch; but the hair that is left is a whole other discussion—and one I’m sure you definitely don’t love as much. This clever roller makes the clean-up process a bit simpler than carefully extracting the locks. All you have to do is roll it over any surface to seamlessly pick up lint, hair and dirt. There are no adhesives or sticky tape used which means you can use it multiple times without having to stock up on a new roll.

Sundrops Miracle Pink Stuff
Of all the products on the platform, The Pink Stuff instantly became a must-have declared product among those on CleanTok, and it’s not hard to see why. The cleaning paste tackles even the most annoying of stains on sinks, counters, stoves, toilets and more. Although the mighty paste is effective, it’s not to an overwhelming degree that it will damage surfaces. Apply a generous amount of paste to your desired messy surface and scrub lightly to remove any stains or dirt.

Scrub Daddy Sponge Set
Yes, the smiley face on this one is an added bonus but that’s not the (only) reason why they are so loved by many. The cleaning tool is designed with a dual-textured side that will cut your clean-up time in half. One side can be used to scrub off debris and dirt while the other is made of foam and soaks up excess liquids. It also works to dry the surface once you’re finished. Many people on CleanTok recommend using the Scrub Mommy sponge in conjunction with the Pink Stuff for a dynamic cleaning duo.

Scotch-Brite Non-Scratch Wand
If you see this dish wand outside of CleanTok you might assume it is just another tool you can use for your dishes, you would be mistaken. While it can be used in that way, it also has been lauded by many for acting as a super helpful shower, tile, and bathtub cleaner. The scrubbing gadget can be filled with dish soap and white vinegar to clean off the grimiest of spaces. The best part is that you never have to put on gloves or touch anything while cleaning thanks to your helpful assistant
