Woman’s genius hack gets rid of dirt not picked up by a dustpan

Everyone with a broom or brush knows the annoyance of trying to get that last bit in the dustpan.

Most of the time, the brush sweeps up the most of the dirt and dust, but you’re left with a line of grime that you have to chase around until it stays.

This hack, though, recently shared on TikTok, could change things up.

The video by @shimmyshim17 now has over 12 million views, with some calling it a ‘game-changer’.

All you need to do, according to shimmy, is get yourself a paper towel.

Wet the end of the towel by dipping it into your sink, then place it on the floor beside your dirt stripe.

Use your brush to sweep the debris onto the wet part of the kitchen roll, and you’ll see it sticks effortlessly.

From there, you simply wipe up the rest and your floor will be dust-free.

It seems simple, but it will take time off your sweeping routine, and prep your floor for a mop without dust.

Some of the 1.5 million people who’ve liked shimmy’s TikTok agree that it’s an essential cleaning trick.

One person commented: ‘I hope both sides of your pillow are cold for the rest of your life.’

Another said: ‘The people in the comments that are like “or just buy a dust pan” have OBVIOUSLY never swept before.’

‘I am so glad I saw this. I’m just about to clean my floors!’ said a third.

Vacuuming is generally the most effective way to pick up dust from the floor, but if you’re sweeping you could also try a rubber brush.

These are commonly used in hair salons as they pick up hair easily.

Coupled with this paper towel hack, your vinyl, wood, or laminate floors will be sparkling in no time.
