Every year, from 2004 to present, Google Trends shows that searches for ‘spring cleaning tips’ peak in March. But our obsession with spring cleaning doesn’t stop there—on TikTok, #cleantok has a whopping 59.4 billion views, making it a huge trend on the platform. But among the sea of cleaning content, which videos are the most popular, or in other words, most satisfying?
Intrigued to find out, End Of Tenancy London analysed which cleaning videos on TikTok have the highest like-to-view ratio, highlighting the ones that leave viewers most inspired. Using its research as our shortlisting, we’ve selected 20 of #cleantok’s most enjoyable videos.
We’re not sure what this blue spray is made of exactly but it sounded even better than whipped cream being sprayed out of a can. It worked wonders on this sink too! Side note: just how cute is that grey smiley sponge?
Even though the WC looked clean in the first place, there’s something incredibly addicting about watching a toilet bowl receive five different layers of cleaning products. The foam/white powder combo is simply irresistible. Almost makes you want to taste it, right? Oh… Just us then?
Ideally, it is said that makeup enthusiasts should wash their beauty blenders after each use and replace them every three months. Let’s be honest though, not many of us actually do it, simply because it either takes too much time or because we’re not sure exactly how to clean them in the first place.
Well, fear no more because this video from Huda Beauty’s founder proves that it is, in fact, not as hard as we thought it would be—just use some hand soap and give them a nice little scrub in the bath.
User @ladytaphos, real name Alicia Williams, has been sharing videos of herself tidying up tombstones in Bedford, Virginia—and her followers just can’t get enough. One of her cleaning videos has topped 34.9 million views and 4.5 million likes. Cleaning gravestones isn’t Williams’ day job, but she’s dedicated to say the least.
Did you know that if, like us, watching cleaning videos is one of your guilty pleasures, it’s probably not because you’re a secret neat freak but more a sign that you’re overwhelmed in other areas of your life? Considering the amount of satisfaction we just gained from this dirty shower being scrubbed real good, we could definitely use a vacation.
Can we please first and foremost establish that this page is a safe space where we can share all of our darkest secrets? Cool, glad we can agree on that. Here we go: I’m pretty sure I’ve never cleaned my oven, like, ever. Why? Because it’s so damn hard! And it needs to be done with awful, toxic chemical cleaners. Thanks, but no thanks, I’ll just watch TikTok videos instead.
“Can someone do this to my brain?” commented one TikTok user and honestly, same.
The Pink Stuff is a miracle paste that hails from the UK and went viral on TikTok for its all-purpose cleaning abilities. You can find video after video of people wiping stain-mired cooktops spotless, scouring grease-scorched ovens and reviving dark, soiled grout. Like magic!
You’re telling me this device both vacuums and mops? Look at how shiny this floor is!
Another one from @sarahmcglory because this shower clean is too good to miss out on. Using one of these sharp cleaning tools is definitely proof of a level of dedication we’re yet to reach, sadly.
It goes without saying that this toothbrush needs to be binned as soon as you’re done clearing out all the goo stuck in your sink’s pipe. Disgustingly satisfying.
@Thepoolguyml, real name Miles, is—you guessed it—a pool cleaner who posts regular videos showing TikTok users how he cleans all kinds of pools, making his incredible pool transformations look easy. It’s no surprise users love his content. “Holla your boy for the pool work,” indeed.
Miles himself declared this pool “the worst smelling pool he’s ever seen.” That says a lot about the stench that must have been coming out of this pond. It’s during these moments that we feel lucky enough to witness such marvels only through a screen…
We swear this one’s the last pool-related cleaning video. We just couldn’t help ourselves with this moss-scrubbing content.
Most of us probably don’t realise, but that carpet you’ve had for over five years used to be white, not grey… After watching this video, we’re definitely booking an appointment at the nearest rug cleaning service—wherever that may be.
Okay, so this isn’t cleaning content so to speak, but it’s just as (if not more) addictive. Those clear plastic boxes make any food look ten times better than it normally does. We’re just slightly disappointed that the cheese shelf was left like this. What do you say, satisfying or not?
Again, some of you might consider this one cheating, but it was indeed at the very top of #cleantok. Please, don’t try this at home.
You know when you’re wearing makeup and answer the phone only to realise your screen has some on it too? Well, we’re pretty sure whatever this cloth is made of would work wonders on your phone’s screen too. Shut up and take my money!
We can’t stop watching this video but if it was us… It’s safe to say we would just throw this dirty tray in the bin and buy a couple of new ones. How shameful.
You know what they say, “Good soup.”
