One of his most notable tips involves cleaning cheap stovetops that seem to always be dirty.

He explained that, at least for him, these stovetops seem to get “destroyed every time you use a drop of oil.”

“Try to cook some red sauce it looks like a murder scene,” he joked.

Commenters were obsessed with the tip from Larsen who makes tons of great videos on “adulting” tips.
This comes as another expert cleaner revealed how she cuts her kitchen cleaning time in half by using eight products.
Kathryn is the star behind the YouTube account Do It On A Dime.
She is a dedicated Dollar Tree customer and an expert on budget-friendly tips for organizing, cleaning, and decorating your home.
Kathryn posted a video revealing her eight secrets that helped cut her kitchen cleaning time in half.
“These are cleaning tips your mom didn’t teach you. Today we are going through the kitchen giving it a great deep clean,” she says.
Kathryn understands the frustration and lack of motivation when cleaning, especially in the kitchen.
Her goal in the video is to make it easier and less dreadful.
“It doesn’t matter how it got that way. The reason we are here today is to fix it together,” she says.
First, Kathryn explains that an easy way to clean the underneath of your sink is to put down Floor Pops Peel and Stick Tiles.
These tiles are about $2 for every square foot.
Not only are these tiles renter-friendly, but they also make cleaning the area effortless.
You can easily remove them, and they protect the surface underneath from scratches and gunk.
All you have to do is measure the space, cut the tiles to fit with an Exacto knife, peel the back, and stick them on.
Next, Kathryn says you need the $3.98 Murphy Oil Soap.
“This cleans cabinets whether they’re painted or they’re just wood or laminate,” she explains.
Kathryn encourages viewers to put a little squirt of the soap in a Dollar Tree bucket with water.
She says the Dollar Tree bucket will help separate the clean water from dirty water.
Her third tip is to use the $38.99 O-Cedar Mop.
You can use this safely on your cabinets, walls, or top of doors.
To dry the cabinets or any other surfaces, Kathryn suggests putting a rag on the end of your Swiffer.
“You do want to make sure to thoroughly dry your cabinets, so you don’t have any water stains,” she says.
A microfiber cloth works well too.
Kathryn was able to mop her entire kitchen in about 15 minutes.
“Let’s talk about those horrible smells in the kitchen,” Kathryn continues.
The best way to get rid of those smells is to clean the oven and the trashcan.
But don’t just clean the top of the oven; Kathryn says you have to pull the whole thing out and use a $36.04 Bissell SteamShot Hard Surface Steam Cleaner to clean the entire thing.
“The SteamShot does really well with sticky residue,” Kathryn proclaims.
The $1.25 LA’s Totally Awesome Oxygen Stain Remover should be used to clean your rangehood filters.

“Take one scoop and put it in about a gallon of water and then stick these right inside to soak for about 30 minutes,” she says.
