What are the best TikTok hacks using kitchen cupboard ingredients?

TikTok’s baking soda cleaning hack

TikTokker @myhealthydish uses just hot water and baking soda to scour tough stains on her stainless steel frying pan.

Soak for 20 minutes, give it a scrub, and your pan will look brand new.

TikTok’s rice water hack

Loads of users think that rice water is the key to long luscious hair, without forking out on expensive serums.

Whether it’s to make it stronger, thicker, shinier or actually grows it, as it happens rice water is extremely simple to make at home using – you guessed it – normal rice.

Simply spritz the rice water all over your hair and voila.

TikTok’s lemon juice squeezer hack

For this lemon-squeezing hack, all you need is a skewer or chop stick.

Of course, once you’ve squeezed out all the lemon juice fuss-free, you can use the juice for cooking or cleaning.

TikTok’s butter softening hack

We usually use our graters for cheese, but as this clever hack shows – you can also use it to grate blocks of butter or margarine.

Especially useful when you’re about to bake, and you suddenly realise the block’s been in the fridge too long – and it’s totally rock solid.

Total time saver.

TikTok’s whisk-to-head-massager hack

Maybe you’re not much of a baker and you’ve got a whisk lying around in your kitchen drawers?

If that’s the case, all you need is some scissors and a touch of glue to turn the utensil into a useful head massager.

A head massage is a great way to unwind after a long day of staring at a screen while working from home.

TikTok’s veggie-growing hack

Never-ending spring onions? Yes please.

Most kitchens have some veggie waste – and a little bit of water and some bowls can help bring it back to life.

@browsbeverlyhills_au calls it an ‘isolation garden with food scraps’.

This works for the following veggies:

  • Bok choy/pak choi
  • Cabbage
  • Celery
  • Green onions
  • Fennel
  • Kohlrabi
  • Leeks
  • Lemongrass
  • Lettuce

TikTik’s no-mess brownie baking hack

Baking brownies is fairly straight forward anyway, but there’s a way to make ’em with next to no washing up afterwards.

It’s annoyingly easily… just mix all the ingredients together in the baking tray.

Why didn’t we think of this before?

TikTok’s whipped coffee hack

Missing extravagant and luxurious coffee drinks while stuck at home? Perhaps you’d like to give it a go yourself.

This hack went viral about a year ago, and is still a favourite among the TikTok community.

A tbsp of instant coffee, sugar and hot water, and mix together for three minutes, maybe five. Once it’s all sticky, pour into a glass of your milk of choice.

TikTok’s shaving foam cleaner hack

Cleaning whizz @mama_mila_ says using shaving cream (not gel) helps remove carpet stains, dirty suede furniture and more.

She even uses the foam to clean jewellery, mirrors and windows. If the stain is bad enough… perhaps it’s worth a shot?
