TikToker Azure MacCannell (@livecomposed) shared some of the surprising objects around your home that might need to be cleaned.
MacCannell is a TikToker and mom who shares cleaning and organization tips. In a viral video that has racked up more than 7 million views, MacCannell shows that thoroughly cleaning your home requires more than simply sweeping floors and scrubbing windows. Hard-to-reach places like refrigerator coils and faucet screens need love, too!
The video begins with a shot of MacCannell’s refrigerator. “Here are some things that might need cleaning,” she writes in a caption. Then she shows off just how dusty the back of her refrigerator is. The coils on the refrigerator are coated in a thick layer of gray dust, which begins to disappear as she moves a vacuum cleaner back and forth across the coils.
Cleaning your refrigerator coils, she explains, won’t just get rid of dust. It will also “save you so much money” by prolonging the life of your refrigerator.
Next up, MacCannell shows how to clean the space under your toilet seat. She unscrews the lid from a toilet seat and removes it, showing where grime has built up around the seat’s hinges. Using a disinfecting wipe, she carefully scrubs the grime off of the hinges until the toilet is sparkling clean!
“Clean this and your bathroom will smell much better,” she writes in a caption.
Finally, MacCannell shows how to clean the screen on your sink’s faucet. She unscrews the screen, then drops it in a cup of cleaning fluid. Then she uses disinfecting wipes to wipe down the rest of the faucet.
“You’ll notice a difference in water pressure,” she claims, showing off her now-sparkling sink as the video ends.
“Too scared to look”
Viewers were surprised and horrified by the idea that their homes could be dirty without even realizing it.
“I want these things clean, but I’m too scared to look at how bad they are to actually clean them since I’ve never done it before,” one TikToker wrote.
“I already have so much that I need to clean. I don’t need extra,” another overwhelmed viewer commented.
“Me scrollin’ pretending I never saw this,” joked another TikToker.
Cleaning hard-to-reach places might seem overwhelming, but MacCannell also makes it look extremely satisfying.
