·3-min read

Mrs Hinch walked so that Cleaning TikTok could run.

With over 7.3 billion views of videos tagged #cleaningtiktok, it's clear that watching people clean their grout, soak their toilet bowls in bleach or wash their sofas is scratching a very popular itch. It transcends gender roles, with people of all genders getting in on the grossly satisfying video action. And it has spawned a multitude of hacks and product recommendations that promise to give you those delicious, cleaning miracle before-and-afters that populate your For You Page.

So which of TikTok's viral products and buys are actually worth the hype? We rounded up our favourites (coincidentally, all under £15) which are hyped up with good reason. From smiling sponges to seriously good stain remover, consider this list your #CleaningTikTok starter pack.

Scrub Daddy

Scrub Daddy (and his pink wife Scrub Mommy) are the most ubiquitous sponges on TikTok. And with good reason. The sponge responds differently to different temperatures, meaning you can stiffen it for tough stains with cold water or go softer by soaking it in warm water, making it a much more versatile cleaning option. It's dishwasher-friendly, too, so it can be sanitised.
