5 Best TikTok Laundry Hacks

Including how to fold towels like the fancy spas

If you’ve been paying attention, you’ve probably heard of TikTok. The music-driven, short video social app was quickly adopted by tweens, teens and young adults. More recently, it’s become popular for those over 30 – in large part due to the number of DIY and home décor videos being posted. These days, TikTok is a trove of cleaning videos, how-to clips and laundry tips.

Let’s jump into some of our favorite laundry hacks and folding tips from #cleantok:
