A Gen Z housewife has revealed an unexpected product that can remove years of dirt from her bathroom floor.
The floor — which she said was so rough she almost vomited during the process — hadn’t been cleaned in years.
At the beginning of the video, the social network user said she used Scrub Daddy’s Power Paste the first time she tried to clean the floor but it didn’t work.
She was inspired to use an alternative method after seeing this popular hack go viral on TikTok.
TikTok users (@zoomerhomemaker) said she squeezed Lysol toilet cleaner onto the grout and let it sit for 15 to 20 minutes.
Then she scrubbed the floor with a brush and wiped off the suds with a microfiber towel.
“I know there’s a lot of information out there about it potentially damaging your grout, but this is a rental so I don’t really care,” the content creator wrote, adding that it was a rental from she.
The TikToker wore a pink rubber glove and used a cleaning brush to remove dirt.
“As you can see here, all the gunk is coming out,” she said as she scrubbed.
Finally, she used a microfiber towel to wipe the stain several times before it was cleaned.
The video, first published on July 10, has garnered 2.3 million views, nearly 90,000 likes and more than 400 comments.
One of the most common responses was from someone who said the project was great.
Another said the end result was amazing and a third wrote that the cleaning method was a game changer.
However, not everyone is so positive. Some people criticized the TikToker for saying she doesn’t care if she ruins the stucco because it’s rental money.
They said it was “the worst homeowner ever”.
Another reviewer claimed there was pink mold in the grout.
Others offered alternative cleaning suggestions.
One person said the creator was able to seal the grout so they no longer needed to deep clean it.
Another person suggested that a mixture of baking soda and peroxide could help remove dirt.
Try Pinesol, a magic eraser, or a handheld steamer are some other suggestions.
