We know that it’s particularly annoying when you’ve just brushed your teeth and the water refuses to drain, so it’s no wonder that drain cleaning videos have received over 197,600,00 views on TikTok. Ivan advises a two tier approach to tackling pesky drains, for a quick drain clean, put a dishwasher tablet over the top of the plug and run boiling water over the top of it so it dissolves. This should unblock some of the grime and leave it smelling fresh. And to keep it fresh, try to use drain unblocker regularly to get rid of any excess grime.”

Grout grime is a tricky one, especially so in the UAE where a large portion of our homes are cover in tiles. With over 62,100,000 views on TikTok, it seems we’re not the only ones struggling with those niggly cracks. Ivan suggests a homemade solution is your best bet, “by using baking soda, vinegar, and a small grout brush, you can get the dirt out quick. Simply brush baking soda on the grout and make sure it is completely covered. Then spray over the vinegar, brush away and the chemical reaction from the vinegar and baking soda has done the work for you.”

But Ivan has a hack to make it easier, ” try using your vacuum! This will get rid of any leftover charcoaled bits and crumbs before scrubbing the dirt away. Cleaning the racks in the bath will allow you more space than awkwardly in the sink. By simmering a pan with water, the juice of two lemons and their rinds, you will also be able to scrub away the dirt quickly, due to the steam that has been created.”

When approaching it this chore yourself, Ivan advises to, “remove all shelves and storage units and put the cold food in a cool box. Simply use a hot sponge and soap to clean off any gunk or stains of the shell of the fridge, paying particular attention to where the shelves lie. Then, spray with a multi-purpose cleaner and dry with a cloth. Remember to clean your condenser coils located at the back of the fridge as well. Turn off the fridge and hoover the coils to remove any dust.”
