In the world of cleaning hacks, TikTok sensation Mindy Hyer has struck gold with a simple homemade paste that effortlessly banishes grease stains from glass baking dishes.

Hyer shared her transformative cleaning process in a recent video that has since garnered widespread attention and praise.

“I’ve done some research, and they’re saying make a paste with Dawn dish soap and baking soda (bi-carb soda),” Mindy enthusiastically revealed in her video. The beauty of this hack is its simplicity, utilising common household items to achieve outstanding results.

Any washing-up detergent will work just as effectively as the key is in the combination of dish soap and baking soda, creating a powerful cleaning paste that works wonders on even the most stubborn grease stains.

In the video, Hyer demonstrates her method by applying the cleaning paste to the edges and handles of a grease-stained glass dish. After allowing the paste to sit for 30 minutes to an hour, she uses a small brush and some water to scrub away the grime.

Even during the scrubbing stage, Hyer expresses her satisfaction, exclaiming, “This may have worked!”

The video concludes with a jaw-dropping reveal – the glass baking dish is completely transformed, with only a small amount of baked-on grease remaining on the inside of the handle.

Fellow TikTok users have embraced Mindy’s cleaning revelation, with comments pouring in to applaud the effectiveness of the hack.

One user enthusiastically shared, “Yep, I made that paste and scrubbed all mine at the same time, and all mine looks great now.”

Others echoed the sentiment, declaring, “It works!” and “That’s how I clean mine. Works great!”

Hyer’s cleaning hack has become a sensation on TikTok, inspiring others to give their grimy dishes a new lease on life.

In addition to bringing back the luster of soiled glass dishes, another popular online hack has tackled the restoration of scratched and scuffed crockery with impressive success.

Professional organiser Anita Birges recently unveiled her quick and simple solution to restore crockery to its former glory. The secret ingredient? Baking soda, or as Birges calls it, “the quickest and best kitchen cleaning hack” she knows.

“It’s the secret to removing metal marks, scuffs, and stains from your crockery,” Birges exclaimed, sharing her expertise on how to bring your bowls, plates, and mugs back to life.

The magic trio for this kitchen resurrection includes nothing more than everyday items:

  • Bi-Carb Soda (Baking Soda)
  • A Microfibre Cloth
  • Water from your tap

Explaining the process, Birges said, “Dampen your cloth with water and dip into some bicarbonate soda so the soda sticks to the cloth. Give your crockery a good scrub, rinse off with water and leave to dry,” Birges explained.

“It really is that quick and simple!”

But that’s not all, Birges sweetened the deal by offering an “extra tip” to her followers.

“This cleaning hack also works a treat for cleaning out stains in your reusable coffee cups and travel mugs,” she revealed.
