You’re making your bed wrong – the right way uses a super cheap solution to get the wrinkles out

WE’VE all been told that making our bed in the morning leads to a more productive day.

Not only does a smooth and fluffed bed give our room a cleaner appearance, but it can also bring us calmness and a small sense of accomplishment.

Sometimes, however, no matter how much you pull and tuck your duvet, it just doesn’t look pristine - the wrinkles refuse to disappear.

Rather than take the time to remove and iron your sheets, one woman on TikTok said she has a quick solution: a jug of water mixed with equal parts rubbing alcohol and equal parts fabric softener.

The cleaning pro, who goes by @Carolina.McCauley online, transferred this mixture into an empty spray bottle and began spraying her linen duvet cover.

According to Carolina, the potion serves as both a wrinkle-reducer and a deodorizer for beds and couches.

It also works in the kitchen. “Use it to clean and polish your stainless steel,” she said while buffing a coffee maker and a refrigerator.

If you’re looking for more furniture cleaning tips, a TikToker named Stephanie Padilla knows the trick to odor-free upholstery.

She began: “I add a couple of essential oil drops to a clean, damp sponge and I go over my freshly vacuumed furniture and accent chairs.”

She filmed herself passing the sponge over the back of her couch and chairs.  

For the rugs, she turned to a paper towel: “I also like to grab a sheet of paper, drop essential oil, rip it up, and vacuum over it.”

She scattered the torn-up pieces of paper towel onto her fabric carpet; and as she vacuumed them, the scent spread across the floor.

Although some viewers were appreciative of the hack, others warned that it could be dangerous on rugs if you have pets around.
