10 TikTok Hacks that Will Change Your Adulting Life


TikTok hacksI am the laziest when it comes to daily adulting duties like cleaning, organizing, and maintaining our home. I’ve seen tons of memes and videos of wives making fun of their husbands for leaving cabinet doors open, putting their slightly dirty clothes next to the laundry hamper, or not packing the dishwasher efficiently. My husband and I chuckle because that is so me, and definitely not him. Justin is not super particular and will point out my flaws in a comical way (he has them too, so don’t worry). When it comes to house duties we split them up and tackle them in our own ways. My number one rule is: I refuse to do the vacuuming. It is the most frustrating experience. I get hot and flustered, smack the machine into walls and doors, get caught in the cord, and so on. Basically, I’m dramatic. 

I do not aim to have a spotless kitchen (unless we have visitors), I frequently forget to put the washed clothes in the dryer, and I forget my own lunch box in my backpack over the weekend. Although these are my daily battles I have spent a lot of my downtime, during the pandemic, just scrolling through TikTok. I laugh, I cry, and I learn a lot. And all of this scrolling has not been time-wasted! Instead, I have gathered my top 10 TikTok adulting hacks that you should definitely get excited about!

  1. Chicken Tendon removal

All you need is a fork, a paper towel, and some raw chicken breasts! It is so satisfying!

2. Easy Weeding Hack

The tool works and is super addicting! 

3. Dusting a Ceiling Fan

No more ignoring the massive dust bunnies on our ceiling fans with this hack! Now I will actually consider cleaning my fans.

4. Prevent Crying over Onions

So smart!

5. Grocery Hack

This is eco friendly and efficient! It makes carrying in groceries so much easier.

6. Ctrl+D

This is so minor but is a game changer. Skip the extra steps and live your best life!

7. Shower Cleaning Hack

This is perfect for the person who likes to multitask.

8. Wrapping Paper Hack

Such a simple and brilliant idea! Unraveling wrapping paper rolls is so annoying!

9. Efficient use of Tomato Paste

Again, simple and so efficient!

10. Cleaning Stained Tupperware

The only time I am self conscious about my Tupperware is if I am giving it to someone else, but this is still a useful and interesting hack!

Ok, what hacks do you use and swear by?! I will continue to scroll on TikTok looking for more ways to be a lazy–but efficient–adult.
