A CREATIVE kitchen cleaning hack has the potential to transform a grimy stovetop into a glistening surface.
A self-proclaimed cleaning expert (@ellentheblogger) has headed on to TikTok to show her followers how to use a certain utensil to clean in the hard-to-reach spots.
Ellen realized that she could use a knife and a wet dish rag to wipe away loose food particles andthat get trapped in the cracks.
In a brief clip posted to TikTok, she displayed how she takes the rag and wraps it tightly around the knife.
“Use a wet cloth around the butter knife to clean it between your stove,” she said in the video.
She then showed how the knife slides perfectly in the small crack between the stove and the counter that may not be reachable with other cleaning devices.
One of her followers simply couldn’t believe how well the hack seemed to work.
“This is amazing,” the astounded TikToker wrote in the comments section.
In the caption, Ellen claimed to have other savvy ticks for staying clean in the kitchen.
“Follow me for more tips and tracks around the house,” she wrote.
Ellen previously posted a four-part series on spring cleaning hacks that received loads of praise from her supporters.
In addition to the knife and cloth hacks, she suggested using vacuum storage bags to store extra items around the house.
She also shared how she uses vinegar as an alternative to other disinfectants to clean kitchen faucets or shower heads.
