Change Your Life With This Cleaning Hack

Let’s talk about everyone’s favorite topic – floors!


More specifically I want to talk about that struggle we all know and despise; trying to get the pile of dust, dog hair, and dirt that you just swept into the dustpan. 

Either the dirt and dust go under, fling over, or just completely miss the dustpan. It’s seemingly unavoidable…

Until now. And it’s all thanks to a TikTok user, @shimmyshim17.

Here’s what you’ll need:


  • Paper Towels
  • Water


First, double-check that you haven’t missed any spots and make sure you’ve combined all your piles. 

Take about three paper towels without separating them. Fold the bottom two together and run the bottom of paper towels under warm water. 

Place the wet part of the paper towel on the pile you’ve made. Pick up anything that’s too big to stick to the paper towel and wipe in a circular direction (with the grain if you have wood floors.)

Voila! You just picked up ALL of the dust pile in less than 30 seconds with no pain, no hassle, and no leftover mess.

I hope this helps you get the most out of cleaning. And most of all I hope it helps you live a healthier and happier life while saving you some time, too!
