If you’re sick of scrubbing your floors to try and get them looking perfect, then one woman’s innocent mistake could be your relief as you can save lots of time with this simple hack
If your tiled floors are looking a bit worse for wear but you simply just don’t have the time to dedicate to scrubbing and mopping all day, then a cleaning and organisation expert may have just the thing.
She has claimed that using one simple product will make your grout look clean again – and you won’t even have to get on your hands and knees and scrub.
In a video shared to TikTok, Asure MacCannel, from the US, explained how she discovered Healthier Home’s Degreaser could clean the floor – as well as leave her oven sparkling.
Posting under the name @livecomposed, she explained: “I accidentally spilled this degreaser on my floor and discovered that it cleans my grout without even scrubbing.”

Azure filmed herself demonstrating the cleaning tip, instructing people to simply pour the degreaser on the floor, let it sit for a minute, and then wipe it away with a mop.
She mentioned that you do need to dilute the product for other cleaning purposes.
Many of her followers were thrilled about her tip, with one stating that she won the cleaning side of TikTok.
Someone commented: “You know you’re getting old when get excited about stuff like this.”
“Fast food places add degreaser to their mops all the time. It works”, another added.
An additional user suggested using OxiClean to clean grout.
If you have a lot of grout to clean, another TikToker wants to make sure you use the best mopping technique possible.
The woman, named Tanya, revealed that she places a small garbage bin into her standard mop bucket.
She adds water to the mop bucket, and a mixture of detergent and boiling water to the smaller trash can inside.
She then rings the mop out into the mop bucket – but dips it back into the clean mixture of soap and water.
“This way you’re only using clean water to mop your floors,” Tanya noted.
“This method is a much better alternative as you are not dipping in the dirty water … you are dipping in clean water each time you mop.”
