A CLEANING expert doesn't want you wasting money on cleaning products.
She gave five alternatives to household cleaners that will save you some cash at the store.
The guru, who refers to herself as Neat Caroline on TikTok, revealed her tips in a video shared with her 16,000 fans.
"The first is stainless steel cleaner.
"You can just use some handy-dandy multi-purpose cleaner or you can also just go in with a damp microfiber cloth," she explained.
Her second tip is to switch window cleaner with a spray bottle filled with one part vinegar and one part water.
"Third is grout cleaner," Caroline noted.
"Instead, I recommend using some hydrogen peroxide and [scrubbing] it away with a toothbrush."
She said Mr. Clean Magic Erasers also work well for cleaning grout.
Next, Caroline advised against buying disinfecting wipes.
"Disinfecting wipes are less effective than cleaner at getting rid of dirt on your surfaces so just use an all-purpose cleaner instead," she said.
Her fifth and final tip is a swap for washing machine cleaner.
"Instead, just pour two cups of vinegar into your washing machine tray [and] put half a cup of baking soda directly into the drum.
"Run that on the hottest cycle and that is how you clean your washing machine," she said.
The drum of the washing machine is not the only part of it that needs to be cleaned, though.
A TikToker previously discovered that her washing machine has a pump filter that she can access through a door on the front of her washer.
The instructions printed on the inside of the door advised her to clean it out once a month.
"I've had this for five to six years and I have never cleaned it," she admitted.
"Please take this as a public service announcement and go clean yours NOW," she warned after showing how dirty her filter was.
