Details on the TikTok Tupperware cleaning hack.

TikTok creator @ariganja explained that her friend's grandmother introduced her to the holy grail of TikTok cleaning hacks — how to actually remove stains from Tupperware.

So, how does it actually work? She walks viewers through it step by step. The first thing you need to do is rip up a few pieces of paper towels.

The second step is to fill the stained Tupperware in question about a quarter of the way full with water. Then, add a few dollops of dish soap. Throw in the paper towel pieces into the soapy, sudsy mixture, seal the Tupperware tightly, and then shake for a minute or so!

So, are there any other interesting TikTok cleaning hacks?

OK, so now that you've rinsed out all of your stained Tupperware (thanks TikTok) are there any other interesting TikTok cleaning hacks that you know, actually work?

YouTuber Mai Zimmy took one for the internet team and tested out several viral TikTok cleaning hacks, including a simple hack that was supposed to clean eyeshadow palettes. She demonstrates that the hack does in fact work by wrapping her setting powder container with a baby wipe and gently wiping the container across her eyeshadow palette.

Obviously, the concern would be eyeshadow colors spreading to other colors, but in Mai's video, it's clear that the hack collects the residue from around each eyeshadow circle without accidentally blending colors.

Another TikTok cleaning hack that works incredibly well, per Mai's own test, is the DIY wrinkle releaser, which is basically a one to four ratio of fabric softener to water.

Mai compares spraying store-bought wrinkle releaser spray with the DIY spray, and the DIY recipe ends up working just as well! She also finds success with the TikTok hack of keeping shoelaces in the dryer door in order to decrease the noise a dryer makes when attempting to dry off tennis shoes before wearing them again.
