I’m a mum-of-three and I swear by the 'saucepan technique' to keep my carpets spotless – it’s so easy

A MUM-OF-THREE has shared her incredibly easy hack to getting her rugs and carpets spotless.

While there are hundreds of carpet cleaning products on the market, she actually uses a saucepan lid to really get all the dirt off the floor.


In a video shared on the Home Motivation TikTok account, she could be seen dissolving a dishwasher tablet in a bowl of hot water.

She then uses a microfibre cloth which she places over the underneath of the lid, and uses the handle and her hand to keep it in place.

The mum can then be seen using the lid to vigorously scrub the carpet.

And once she's finished, the rug can be seen looking completely spotless with neat lines where she'd scrubbed it with the lid.
