All you need is a squeegee, and she has purchased her’s from Ikea.
First filming her stylish bedroom, the star then panned the camera down to her grey carpet, and in the caption wrote: “Cleaning tip to deep clean and fluff up carpets wayyyy more than a hoover can”.
She then showcased her squeegee and directed viewers to “pull backwards” with the tool.
The end result meant that there was a “huuuuge difference in colour” and also lots of dust had come up.
The influencer finished by filming a big dust ball, captioning it: “Final result and all the dust that came up… try it and see how much is in your carpet.”
The video has been seen well over a million times, and like 163.9k times.
At the time of writing there are 540 comments, with many excited to try the hack.
One wrote: ”OMG thank you. I’m doing this right now. I have a little Yorkie and she sheds.”
“I legit have the same carpet and this helped so much thank you.”
TikTok is also awash with many brilliant cleaning hacks and recently a woman, known online as aligrams3, showcased how to clean a bathtub with just a grapefruit and some sugar.
All you have to do is cut a grapefruit and then “put sugar on the flesh side”.
She then showcased the piece of fruit after it has been dusted in sugar granules, no doubt to act as an exfoliant for bathroom grime.
Ali then began rubbing the bathtub with the fruit, instructing viewers to “start scrubbing” because “the acidity helps removes soap scum”. And it worked!
Who knew? Off to clean our bathtub and carpets, be right back…
