Woman shares genius trick to stop dust from settling on your surfaces

Dusting is no one’s favourite job to do, but this hack will at least make it quick and easy.

A cleaning fanatic has shared a simple trick to keeping your surfaces sparkly and free from dust – and all you need is baby oil.

Manjeet often posts cleaning tips and tricks on her TikTok, where she goes by the name of @mrsjohalshome like how to keep your washing machine free of mould, and how to get rid of stinky bathroom odours.

In a recent video, Manjeet listed all of the different ways she uses baby oil, like dusting her sides and giving her leather jacket a nice shine.

Filming a video of her demonstrating its uses, she writes “Use on your fridge freezer, follow the natural grain.”

In the second clip, she is polishing her tabletop and candle holders, and writes: ”Use on chrome surfaces to give it an extra shine.”

While in her third demonstration, she wrote: “Buff into leather for a shine.”

Baby oil also is a great cleaner for stainless steel as it can help to make it shiny, if it’s buffed into the surface in circular motions.

To ensure that the surface isn’t sticky, remove excess oil by going back over it with a microfibre cloth or kitchen towel.

What’s more, you can pick up the baby oil in most high street retailers from £1.50.

Since being posted, the video has racked up almost 2,000 likes and dozens of comments from divided viewers. While some were impressed by the hack, others had a few questions.

One person said: “Never thought to use baby oil. You have a beautiful home by the way.”

Another asked whether you could use the oil to clean windows as well, but Manjeet recommended not to as it would smear. Instead, she suggested using Fairy washing up liquid and water.

A third wrote: “It’s all fine and dandy doing this but doesn’t it make your surface greasy?” to which Manjeet replied, saying: “No hun not at all I use the smallest drop.”

“I use it on my bathroom radiator, gives it a lovely shine,” revealed someone else.
