Home decor, kitchen or cleaning products all went viral on TikTok. Here are some the things we added to our cart when checking out new items for our home.

If anyone is on cleaning TikTok then you already know about the pink stuff. The simple and easy cleaning paste, just slab it on a surface and let it sit. Wipe if off and your surface looks brand new.
