TikToker reveals ‘life-changing’ hack for keeping your shower clean

TikTok’s latest cleaning hack features a surprising — but for some, “life-changing” — use for Rain-X.

The trick, which uses the windshield-wiper treatment to help with dirty showers, is just the most recent home hack to go viral on the app. In the past few months, users have also shared their hacks for “reviving” stale bread, making a homemade spice rack and even cleaning cars with slime.

This latest hack comes from user Vanesa Amaro (@vaneamaro91). The TikToker has all sorts of cleaning tips and tricks on her page, but her idea for keeping water marks off of shower doors seemed to really strike a chord.

“This is definitely a housekeeper secret,” Amaro said in her clip. “And I just thought I’d share it with you guys because it’s life-changing.”

The video begins with Amaro holding a bottle of Rain-X, a sprayable substance that keeps water from collecting on car windshields. She then proceeds to spray the Rain-X onto a glass shower door before wiping it down with a microfiber cloth.

In theory, the substance prevents water from accumulating on the door and leaving marks that can eventually stain your shower. Amaro used her hack on a glass door, but other TikTokers chimed in to say that the spray is also effective in sinks and on other bathroom surfaces.

Overall, commenters praised the hack, with many calling it “genius.”

“My mind is blown,” one user wrote.

“You’re my hero,” another added.

Others chimed in to warn that Rain-X can be dangerous if inhaled and suggested that users be sure to wear a mask or air out the room after trying this hack. Thankfully, there’s also a version of Rain-X made specifically for showers, which seemed to be the version Amaro uses.
