Most of my friends and family already know I’m obsessed with TikTok for the funny videos and the clever hacks. Including hacks to help the one thing that never ends in our house: cleaning.
Now, I know that TikTok seems like more of an app for Gen Z, but it has so many great ideas to make cleaning and chores easier on the whole family. And as a mom of two boys who can make a mess if I leave them alone for just 30 seconds, I can vouch that learning new cleaning hacks from TikTok has helped our day-to-day (and even helped a stinky situation boy moms will understand—see #1 below).
1. Boy Mom Bathroom Hack to Save Your Nose by @heathermo0529
If you have young or older boys, this is a wonderful hack to get the urine smell out of the bathroom floor. Simply spray shaving cream all around the bottom, and the smell will disappear. I also recommend having younger kids learn to pee sitting down to help prevent future accidents.

3. Bathtime Cleaning Hack by @themoffers
I’m banging my head at how I never thought of cleaning the bathroom while my kids were splashing in the tub. It’s an efficient way to help get cleaning done even with a hectic schedule, simply by multitasking. Of course, never leave young children unattended while they’re in the water, but you can wipe down counters and pick up odds and ends while watching your tots playing in their bubbles.
