TikTok is once again educating the world by sharing its clever cleaning tricks to make even the dirtiest nooks and crannies of our homes sparkle, and this particular one has people saying, “Wow!”
Jane Watson, a mother of five from the United States, shared it on her TikTok page, OrganizedAndSimplified4u, and it included several innovative ideas for getting rid of mold and grime.
However, it was one in particular that caught viewers off guard and they took to the comments section to share their amazement.
In the short clip, Jen pulls the rubber section of the door on her washing machine to show all the scum and grime that’s accumulated before advising adding baking soda and white wine vinegar.
Put about 2 tablespoons of the powder directly onto the mess, then pour it over the liquid so that the mixture immediately begins to boil.

In the video, a mixture of baking soda and white wine vinegar is added to the inside of the rubber door of the washing machine.
Quickly closing the door, Jen put the machine in the rinse and watched the cheap and easy solution work its magic.
Once it was done, mommy pulled the rubber liner to show that it was now spiky and stretchy and clean enough for all the delicate washings.
After watching the video, which has already amassed over 144,000 likes, viewers took to the comments section to cheer.
One person wrote: “Wow! Thanks for sharing these awesome hacks!!!
Thank you for this post, the inside of the washer drives me crazy and it looks like I’ve tried everything. What exactly do you use? another social media user asked.
While another person was enthused: “Hey man, Citizen do the washer, I got a $350 quote to go out and replace!” White vinegar and baking soda??
A fourth person agreed, saying: This is genius! Maintaining a clean and healthy home shouldn’t be toxic.
Clearly amazed, another declared: “Things you learn on TikTok!”
Several people have had to double check what Jen used to make the mixture because they were concerned that she was using white wine to clean the washing machine.
“Wine waste,” one viewer joked.
One TikToker user asked, “Was that wine?”
A third person laughed: “I’m thinking I don’t waste white wine in the washing machine.”
The result is a sparkling clean door and interior of your washing machine which means you can be sure to wash all your clothes hygienically from now on.
Other users were quick to share their cleaning hacks in the comments, with one advising: “Shampoo, is the best bathroom cleaner.” Hairspray quickly breaks down.
Another joked: “I only buy a new house every few months.”
After each use: Take out the washer soap tray and let it dry overnight. He also suggested leaving the washer door open to dry completely.
