TikTok used to be solely for silly dancing videos, but lately it's become a place to find inspiring DIY, home decor and home hacks content. These 10 home hacks from TikTok are easy, and a must-try!
When TikTok (a music-driven short form video social app) arrived on the scene last year, I thought it was amusing, but didn't love it. My tweenager thinks it's the best thing since sliced bread, but there were too many Gen Zers on there for me! Recently, it's become more popular for over 30's, and there have been more videos for people like me who love DIY, home decor and home hacks.
I've found some pretty amazing home-related tips & tricks on TikTok, and I thought I'd share my absolute favourites here with you today. Watch my YouTube video below to see them all, and I'll list them and link to the original inspiration.
Watch all these 10 home hacks from TikTok in my YouTube video below:
Curtain hack: https://vm.tiktok.com/JRP4KeF/
Use cut toilet paper rolls in between your drape's tabs to make your curtains look more full.
Flower hack: https://vm.tiktok.com/JRPcp8R/
Create a grid with Scotch tape on the top of your vase to help your flowers have a more even look.
Fan hack: https://vm.tiktok.com/JRPgnUg/
Use a pillow case to dust fan blades so that the dust doesn't fall on your furniture or floor.
Candle hack: https://vm.tiktok.com/JRPKrwp/
Wrap some tinfoil around a candle that's tunneled, light it up, and the sides should melt away & even out.
Level hack: https://vm.tiktok.com/JRPThby/
Download a level app on your phone to make sure your DIYs are straigne & even on the go.
Microwave hack: https://vm.tiktok.com/JRPqB4D/
Have a gross & dirty microwave like this? Place a measuring cup full of water and dish detergent inside, put the microwave on for a couple of minutes, leave it closed for an additional minute, and easily wipe away any stuck-on grease and grime.
Colainder hack: https://vm.tiktok.com/JRPsPvM/
Instead of pouring your pasta into a colander in the sink, try placing the colander inside the pot firs and then pouring the liquid out that way.
Toilet paper hack: https://vm.tiktok.com/JRPpw91/
Make your toilet paper look extra fancy in your guest bathroom by folding its edges, stamping it with the bottom of your faucet, and stacking it on your shelf.
Towel hack: https://vm.tiktok.com/JRPgtC2/
Folding your towels this way looks better: fold them in half horizontally, then in half again, and then fold them into thirds before stacking.
Sticker removal hack: https://vm.tiktok.com/JRPCNtS/
Use eucalyptus essential oil to easily remove sticker residue on jars and bottles. Wash the jar with soap and water afterwards and it'll look like new!
I hope you enjoyed these easy home hacks I found on TikTok! Which one was your favourite?
