Over the years we've come across a ton of "life hacks", and of course, we've paid special attention to the cleaning hacks. We've tested dozens of them with varying results—some fell flat, while others have become a regular part of our cleaning routine. In this video, we take a look at 6 of those hacks and tell you whether they're a bust or a winner.

We'd love to hear from you - say hello down below!
baking soda with a little hot water to remove burnt on food from pots & pans, put on shortly after cooking let sit 5-10 minutes, or add hot water after your done eating it will remove burnt on food - but must still be a hot paste consistency to work.
The Coke toilet cleaning hack was a bust for me too. As an aside, I soaked a microfiber cloth in vinegar, draped it over various parts of my calcium-mineral deposited porcelain sink for 20-30 minutes, and it removed all of them, leaving it looking like new. Still trying to figure out how to use this method deposits in the toilet! Any ideas, without having to throw the cloth out?
Yes, I'd love to see you test out and prove or disprove the hacks that are out there. Thumbs up on this video.
Hi Melissa just subscribed to your channel and binging all your videos jajajajaja I think they are great, fun, real and easy to follow 😁👍🏻
Well here is one, i’ve seen many hack videos about taking that brown/yellowish mold that gets in the toilet bowl because of the minerals that come in the water, I would like to know what do you recommend to get rid of that and make the toilet white again? See, I have a house in overseas where I go once or twice a year and because of the little use I guess that happens and I tried a whole bunch of products but haven’t been able to get rid of it, Thanks in advance 😊😊😊👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻🤗🤗
I like your vids, BUT....why ALL the dramatics, with your hand gestures, vocal and facial expressions? It reminds me of a 16 year old, plus It takes away from the impact of your cleaning tips. I don't mean to be rude, but it is rather annoying and I find myself following your hand gestures rather than listening to you. Truthfully, after five minutes, I turn it to other cleaning tips vids, where the person speaks like an adult, without all that teen-ager behavior. Please excuse me if I offended you.
Melisa can you pl try to clean greasy stove hood with coke.. I'm fed up of seeing that ad on face book. I hv a big bottle of it for quite some time but I'm not sure if this works can you try & suggest.
Like the hacks keep them up 👍
I remember helping my mom spring clean all the windows with newspaper especially since her and my Dad smoked like chimneys lol.
Hack that i tried that did not work was fresh coffee to remove cigarette smell from car. Bought a used car from dealer and had it smoke bomb twice at dealer but it still smelled like cigarette smoke so i tried everything i knew then read about coffee grounds now my truck smells like Tim Hortons when you could smoke in the shop. Do you know any?
I've used newspaper on windows several times, and hated it every time! I had nothing but streaks, and smears, and it was worse than when I started! Paper Towels work just fine for me, I just don't get the soft ''fuzzy'' kind because yeah those leave lint, but the more coarse paper towels work just fine.
I never understood why people use coke to clean with (or why they drink it) it's acidic and eats through stuff very quickly, the only thing I use it for is to clean the chalkboard I painted onto my wall for the grand kids - it's so far the only thing I have found that actually gets it clean! But after I use the coke and get it clean I go back over it with just plain water and a clean rag to wash the coke off of it.
I can say that I wet my dish rag with warm water and a little dawn, squeeze it on my WHITE cook top, shake a little baking soda on it leave it over night and I have a clean stove top in the morning. I put my baking soda in a parmesan cheese container. Shake Shake Shake. White cook top why were they created?
Getting newspaper is easy when there's any kind of a free, local paper being distributed. In my home city, it's the "Austin Chronicle,' which comes out every week. So I can still get my news online.
Also, one old favorite of mine: cleaning the toilet with a combination of baking soda and vinegar. It's worked well for years, but lately, I've had problems with inactive baking soda that doesn't "fizz" well on contact, so be careful to use fresh stuff.
i have tried out a hack that is FAIL : i created myself a sink cleaning "brush" from a plastic bottle (recycle, how honorable is that!). and if it did get some hairs out.. at some point the whole part of my "creation" just fell off and stayed in the sink. i was mortified (my beloved husband doesn't appreciate my recycling adventures... this failure could well become my last!!!)
Personnel note.. So glad that even though your pregnant you haven't slacked on your videos. A few people I followed have had pregnancy come along and faded away. And being a clean interested type of person I'm glad your still keeping up with your videos. Please don't fade away. Personally I know how hard it is to juggle a career and a kid
I've tried the newspaper thing and I don't like it, even though hubs thought it worked better than paper towels. But the Maker's glass cloth is LIFE. CHANGING. I can clean every mirror in my house with just one! I bought some more at the Black Friday sale.
Yes I enjoyed this video and learning about what hacks work and which don't. My epic fail hack is the ol' put the boiled egg in a container, shake it and it will peel itself....no....no it doesn't. And Melissa that color looks AMAZING on you and your hair looks perfect :) You're glowing!
I actually learned about the vinegar and shower head from your channel awhile ago. Love it!! Are you feeling stalked yet? lol My grandmother always used newspaper and wategar to clean windows! She also used wadded up foil to clean any type of chrome.
Thank you and I really like videos this. I wish I had seen these before I tried a hack for easy oven cleaner and ended up short circuiting my oven and blowing fuses in the house. My husband replaced the oven with a self cleaning oven and I am not allowed to try hacks any more :(
Instead of vinegar I use citric acid crystals, it's behind most descal8ng products at a fraction of the price. A half a teaspoon in water can clean so many things faster and better than vinegar. You can buy a kilo under 10$ CDN on Amazon or soap supply stores. Honestly coffee makers, shower heads, my dishwasher, washing machine, anything. Bonus for things like my dishwasher I add it to the cycle.
Yes, I love that you save me the false hope if crap hacks. One I tried myself was cleaning old dirty pennies (from the crusty change collector in a beater car) with coke. Granted the coke was flat, so maybe that caused the fail...but ....do you know the best way to clean crusty old pennies?
Yes, I did enjoy your input on hacks around the house. Please do more:)
One, hack I have--after working in the yard, my hands are dirty and I don't know if I have any small cuts. I sprinkle generously salt, couple or 3 drops of Tea Tree Oil, and couple drops of dish soap. Massage gently and rinse. This works with anytime you have your hands extra dirty!!
I have seen the video on how to clean a glass stove top. What do you use if the stove top just needs wiped down? Like it is not real dirty. I have used the water from washing dishes, but the stove top comes out dull, and not shiney.
Newspapers and windows... well Iam from Czech republic and not sure if we do use a different type of “ink...” for printing but Melissa - this tip works in my country for more than 101% whole my family ladies cas swear ... thank you and take care! Veronika
If u really want to clean your toilet! This 1000% works ! Just take a bowl put baking soda , vinegar and some salt mixing with a bit of water and then pour it around the whole (I mean inside!) The toilet, Then see the results! Pls Put my comment in your video and try it!
I do this same thing with my oven racks but I use easy off fume free oven cleaner. Just spray them good outside and put in large bag and let sit overnight. Rinse off outside are very little elbow grease.
Hi Melissa love your Clean my space channel I have learned a lot. I was wondering if you could do a segment on tips when hiring a cleaning company and how long they should be in your home cleaning. Thanks
I worked through a temp agency for a maid service, the gal managing should not have been in my opinion. She wanted us to clean bathrooms first and use the same cloths in the kitchen (yuk) the cleaner was not a disinfectant although she said it was, I read the label. I would NOT like them in my house cross-contaminating. I don't know how you can out. I am sure Melissa wouldn't think much of that. Honestly, can they provide more supplies? I refused to work for them anymore.
Hi Melissa. I love everything that you do. However, regarding the video above, whilst I wouldn't personally pour Cola down a toilet, I don't necessarily agree that a sugary environment attracts bacteria....... I was taught by my mother, I think correctly, that bacteria generally don't like high sugar content environment. Other than that, Iwill continue to subscribe to your fantastic site.
Really enjoyed this. So many ‘life hacks’ either don’t work or are more trouble than they’re worth. I really appreciate how well you research your topics. I especially love having a Canadian source. It’s always disappointing to see a video featuring great products that aren’t available in Canada.
Hi Melissa....my son burned one of my good pots and I tried scrubbing and soaking and nothing was working and then I heard if you put one of those dryer sheets in pot with hot water the burned stuff would come right off...NOPE didn't work. Take care oxoxox and you are looking great future mama.

Not everyone has a smart phone. I just have a -I want to make a phone call phone-. Some people like to actually pick up a newspaper. Thanks I would like to know your take on the miracle bathroom cleaner- equal parts of dawn and vinegar.
Yes this video was really useful and you should do more of them! Lot of info out there claims to be miraculous and magical while 60% turn out untrue and make us lose our trust in the remaining ones too!
- do you know any product or way to clean the burnt stains on non stick packing sheets ?
- I used a toilet cleaner product to clean my bath tub once and it left white streaks all over like it cleaned only the spots that it was applied to .. I tried every baking soda hacks to clean and whiten it but didn't work. I think the material of the bath tub is fiberglass or plastic I'm not sure. do you know any way to clean it.
Alaa Hariri - I struggled to get my aluminum sheets / pans clean too. Finally found a metal cleaner along with steel wool works well. Be sure the metal cleaner lists aluminum as one of the metals it will clean. The one I use is Mr. Metal by Northern Labs.
P.s. this cleaner is for shiney aluminum.
Hey Melissa... love your videos.. is there anything you can recommend to clean pen ink from branded hand bags.. i’ve Tried rubbing alcohol n hair spray.. both didn’t work, rather it made the stain worse.. do advise.. thanks a
@CleanMySpace I absolutely love love love your channel and videos! Thank you for sharing your awesome tips and tricks! This is a series I would absolutely love to see keep going! I love It! Do you have any suggestions on how to get diesel out of clothing/Jackets? My husband has a diesel truck and every time he works on it he manages to get diesel on at least one article of clothing. I absolutely hate the smell of diesel, but it's such a waste to keep throwing away his clothing. Yes I'm sure it'd be easier to just have a set wardrobe for working on vehicles, but at some point those things will have to be laundered as well! PLEASE HELP!!!
