We’ve all gone down the #CleanTok rabbit hole, right? Before you know it, you’re watching endless hours of people scrubbing floors and flushing dirty mop water while ordering your own TikTok cleaning products.

It’s almost April, which means it’s the season of spring cleaning. And if you’re not someone who relishes the thought of scrubbing, mopping, vacuuming, dusting and sweeping—allow these viral TikTok cleaning products to change your whole perspective on the typical spring cleaning process.

As someone who grew up in endless clutter that progressed into an eventual hoarding situation, knowing how to clean and what to use doesn’t come naturally to me. When I became a mom, I knew I didn’t want my kids to have to live the way I did, and while I’m far from a Danny Tanner kind of parent, keeping things manageable is important to me. #CleanTok, TikTok’s cleaning community, has helped me learn more about cleaning than I ever thought I needed to know.

And with these tools and perfect spring cleaning products, you’ll be working smarter (not harder) in the cleaning department before you know it.

1. The Ocedar Spin Mop

Spin Mop and Bucket

This mop is a game-changer. No more squeezing the water out yourself, no more mess. Simply add your cleaning product and hot water into the bucket, use the foot pedal to get the mop it to the precise amount of dampness you prefer, and mop away. It’s easy to use, the mop head is a dream, and you’ll be ready to set your Swiffers on fire once you use this guy.

2. Scrub Daddy sponges

Scrub Daddy


Sponge Pack

You’ve probably never thought in-depth about your kitchen sponges before, but you sure will now! The Scrub Daddy sponge line is more than just a smiley-faced kitchen utensil. They can be used wet or dry, they’re guaranteed to not scratch your dishes, they change texture and pliability based on the temperature of the water, they make cleaning spoons a breeze, they don’t smell—the list goes on. There’s a reason these are the only sponges you ever see being used on CleanTok.

Unlike a regular sponge that just can be wet or dry, the Scrub Daddy changes texture based on the temperature of water you use. It becomes more pliable under warm water and stays more rigid under cold water, so you can use it to gently wipe ice cream out of a bowl just as easily as scrubbing dirt off of a floor.

3. Dawn Powerwash Spray

Powerwash Spray

What can’t Dawn Powerwash clean? It cuts through grease and hard, burned-on food remnants like nothing you’ve ever seen before. It also cleans bathrooms, faucets, counters, tables, and even car wheels! You can even use it on tough laundry stains. You’ll use it so much, you’ll need a refill before you know it—so yes, you need the refill packs. You won’t regret it.

4. The Pink Stuff

The Pink Stuff


Spray and Paste

The Pink Stuff Miracle Cleaning Paste is a product that 100% earned its name. It’s perfect for cleaning dirt, grime and stains on saucepans, cooker tops, sinks, grills, ceramic tiles, glass, showers, garden furniture, paintwork, boats, brass and rust… the list is endless. The Multipurpose Spray is tough on stains removing grease and grime and replacing it with a perfect shine. I’ll never use Easy Off (or choke on its fumes) ever again!

5. Folex Carpet Cleaner

Carpet & Stain Remover

This carpet stain remover reminds me of those ’90s infomercials where someone spills a glass of red wine, and whatever cleaner that was being shilled magically cleaned it up. Now I know that cleaner actually exists, and it’s named Folex. There is not one stain on earth it doesn’t immediately fix. It’s like if David Blaine were a stain remover—those stains disappear that fast.

6. Bissel Little Green Machine

Little Green Machine

If you scroll through the videos and the reviews for this little number, you’d be hard-pressed to find a parent or a pet owner who isn’t head-over-heels in love with it. It’ll have your carpets and upholstery looking brand new in no time! (Think of the possibilities of what this machine and Folex can do…whew.) Also? It’s so satisfying to watch the entire cleaning process go down.

7. Shark Navigator Lift-Away

Navigator Lift-Away

There’s a reason popular cleaners on TikTok call them “Shark Bite Lines” and it’s because Shark vacuums are the best. The swivel-steering and “lift-away” pod to clean lower surfaces make this vacuum top-of-the-line. And if your hair has a tendency to completely derail vacuum cleaners (mine sure does, I can’t even blame our pets), have no fear—the Shark Navigator Lift-Away won’t succumb to the coils of human hair like other vacuums.

8. Microfiber Squeeze Mop


I never thought another #mop could compare but this baby is amazing #easysqueezemop is giving the spin mop some competition

Microfiber Squeeze Mop

This self-wringing mop sure isn’t the same self-wringing mop of yesteryear! It’s easy to squeeze and it’s perfect for mopping floors, yes, but especially great for walls and tubs! No more leaning over the tub or shower with a scrub brush—this mop makes it so, so simple.
