KEEPING a house clean can be the bane of some people’s existence – but it doesn’t have to be. 

A cleaning guru shared her simple method for tidying a room in just five minutes and the results are noticeable.

The expert, known as Neat Caroline on TikTok, showed a time-lapse video of herself cleaning a living room area as she discussed the exact steps she takes to get the job done quickly.

First, she recommended setting a timer for five minutes “so you know you have a hard stop.”

“I’m going in and getting rid of anything that does not belong, so that’s food, sweaters, books, chargers from the night before,” she explained next. 

Then, she fluffed her pillows and folded a blanket.

“This is a very easy way to make your home look instantly neat and tidy,” she noted. 

Afterward, she took her handy multi-purpose spray of half vinegar and half water and wiped down any surface with smudges, stains, or “anything that’s glaringly obvious” with a rag.

“I’m not doing a thorough clean here because it’s just five minutes – so anything that stands out to you, clean it,” she added.

She then dusted the television with a microfiber cloth and tossed her cat’s toys into a bin.

She noted that she had the cloth in her cleaning caddy, which is full of items that she uses to clean her house. 

It’s not to be confused with her organizing caddy, which has the goal of helping Caroline organize her home without any fuss.

Finally, she gave the open areas of the room a “quick vacuum”; however, she said the vacuuming part doesn’t need to be done unless you “have the time and energy.”

Caroline ended her video showing that she had two seconds to spare.

Caroline’s followers were instantly impressed with her trick, as one claimed it “couldn’t have come at a better time!”

They added: “My ‘22 reso[lution] is to clean my home frequently.”

“That’s perfect,” another follower stated, adding that the same process can be used for a kitchen and dining room.

And for those who are curious about how to efficiently clean their bathroom, Caroline has an easy method for that, too.

She previously revealed how to quickly clean a bathroom in under 10 minutes with simple products.
