A mum’s simple toilet cleaning video has gone viral – after she showed off her mesmerising ‘squirt and scrub’ regime on TikTok.

The Australian woman tries to make cleaning fun, and shows off her creative flair in the video by decorating the toilet bowl with two different coloured cleaners.

The mum squirts thick bands of purple and pink cleaner around the toilet bowl until it resembles something you might expect to see at a carnival or circus.

She then covers the brightly coloured artwork with some powder before scrubbing it all clean.

The video has been watched more than 180,000 times in just two days.

WHAT WERE 2020’s TOP FOUR BATHROOM CLEANING TRICKS?

Strip bathroom towels: 

Earlier this year, TikTok user Mrs Lauren Elms, from the US, shared a video and revealed she used Borax, Tide and Arm & Hammer Super Washing Sosa to strip her old towels in the bathtub.

In Australia, thousands swear by using one third of a cup of Bare Essentials Borax, one cup of Lectric Washing Soda and a generous amount of Napisan Vanish Oxi Action detergent.

The cleaning method involves mixing all three products together in a bathtub full of hot water, then adding in the towels. The towels should be left in the water and stirred occasionally for at least four hours. The end result leaves the towels looking brand new while the water was left filthy and brown with small particles floating at the bottom. 

 Clean shower curtains and mats:

While many may opt to throw out old shower curtains and bath mats, TikTok user Hannah revealed the bathroom product can simply be washed and reused.

In the video she used a non-chlorine bleach to soak the shower curtain in her bathtub filled with hot water for at least one hour. Alternatively other social media users have also used half a cup of laundry detergent and one cup of distilled white vinegar to leave the shower curtain looking brand new. 

 Kill the bacteria on toothbrushes:

In March, TikTok user Dr M revealed how to disinfect your toothbrush from bacteria and viruses.

‘Did you know your toothbrush harbours a ton of germs!! This is how to clean it and keep you healthy!’ he captioned the post.

In the video he begins by hand cleaning the toothbrush with soap and warm water then soaks the brush in antibacterial mouthwash overnight before rinsing again the next morning.

Cleaning the brush will ensure you don’t get sick from the bacteria lurking in between the bristles.

 Remove unwanted rust:

 Learning how to remove rust from the bathroom was another trend that went viral on TikTok in 2020.

Australian professional cleaner Kacie, from Melbourne, revealed she uses Bar Keepers Friend Cleaner Powder to banish rust in minutes.

‘I don’t know what they put in this stuff but it works like magic,’ she said in the video.

Almost instantly after applying the powder and scrubbing, the rust stains disappeared from the floor.

The Australian product used can be purchased for $8 from Coles and Woolworths.

And has pictures showing her sparkling bathroom and kitchen.

She isn’t the first person on social media to go viral for sharing cleaning videos.

Recently an Australian mum’s quick tips on how to clean grout using two affordable products from Bunnings Warehouse was very popular.

Posting images to a popular Facebook group, Kate said she used the DTA long handled grout scrubbing brush with the Long Life grout cleaner.

‘I have taken ownership of quite a filthy house; testing the Bunnings grout cleaner and long handled brush,’ she wrote.

The scrubbing broom is priced at $27.20 while the cleaning spray costs a mere $10.

The image Kate posted shows how well the two products work when used together, as the dirty grout was left looking brand new.

The scrubbing brush is specifically designed to clean old grout with ease without causing any damage, while the Long Life cleaner restores and revitalises the grout itself.
