TIKTOK has single-handedly changed the way we clean and organise our homes with new tips and tricks being added almost daily.

A hotel housekeeper shared her bed-making secrets and now we can effortlessly change the duvet cover in minutes - yes, really

Posting on her page, For The Home, Christine revealed that the ‘sausage roll’ hack is a must-know and it's pretty easy to do.

Simply lay out your duvet cover inside out on top of your bed and place your duvet on top.

Starting from the closed end, roll up your duvet and cover together into a 'sausage’ shape until you reach the end of your bed.

Then, holding either side, flip it over to reveal the other side (perhaps watch the clip for this step) and do up the buttons before rolling it out - ta da!

Some people fold them while others just shove them in the cupboard (definition of evil if you ask us), but TikTok user Vanesa Amaro (and others) roll them - and they look so luxe.

With spas and hotels still currently closed and holidays abroad not looking likely for a while, creating your own spa-style towel set up could just be the answer

Start by laying your towel out flat, sideways. Then fold the top right corner down so it lines up with the bottom edge.

Then fold the top half of the towel down so it also meets the bottom edge before flipping the whole thing over.

From the straight edge, tightly roll the entire length of the towel until you get to the folded edge which you will wrap around before tucking in the edge.

Housekeeper Vanesa also shared another genius tip which will have your shower screen sparkling in no time.

She showed how to use a washing-up sponge filled with vinegar and washing up liquid on the glass which instantly removes limescale and soap scum.

Others have started doing this too and it's a sure way to keep your shower clean - just leave it in the shower and give it a wipe over while you're in there.

What if we told you that you could ditch the hoover and STILL have clean, fluffy carpets in an instant.

Cleaning fanatics have been using a squeegee, or window scraper, to collect dust while fluffing up their carpet for a fuller, softer finish.

Forget standard laundry washing, the cleaning obsessed have been soaking sheets in a bathtub for effortlessly clean bedding.

Using the strip-wash method, just let them soak in detergent in the tub and literally watch the dirt melt away for extra clean, crisp bedding. 

While strip washing isn't a new phenomenon it seems to have become mainstream again thanks to TikTok with users like MrsLaurenElms trying it.

I’m a tax expert – how your side hustle could land you with a massive IRS bill

SIDE HUSTLES have been in hot demand this year – but you could be in for a hefty tax bill from the Internal Revenue Service (IRS).

In 2022, more than 90 percent of working Americans have a side hustle, according to Insuranks.

1Here's how you can prepare for a surprise tax billCredit: Getty

Average pay is $483 per month or $6,000 per year, the survey found.

People have been looking to make a little extra money as  inflation remains high, with the latest rate pegged at 8.3 percent.

While it's money earned on the side, you need to be aware that it’s in fact taxable and it could come as a big surprise if you aren’t prepared.

Who’s eligible?

Many taxpayers through self-employment need to file an income tax return and pay estimated tax each quarter.

“Unfortunately, having a side hustle, such as freelancing and gig jobs, can attract certain tax complications,” Mark Stewart, a certified public accountant for Step By Step Business told The Sun.

“Most people forget that aside from the taxes they pay on their main earnings, they also have to personally file and pay taxes on their side hustle.”

Anyone who earns $400 or more from self-employment needs to report it to the IRS, according to the agency.

Self-employment applies to those conducting business for themselves including if it’s part-time.

Also, individuals running or partnering with a trade or a business are also affected.  

What can I do to prepare for a tax bill? 

A large tax bill can come as a surprise so it’s important to prepare for it.

One thing you can do is estimate your tax bill.

You can do this by figuring out your adjusted gross income, taxable earnings, as well as deductions for the year.

Once you have that, you can use form 1040-ES to help calculate the estimated tax, according to the IRS.

For money earned through side hustles, financial consultant firm Ramsey Solutions recommends storing 20-35 percent of it in a separate bank account and saving it for taxes.

Also, Mr Stewart advised doing another thing depending on the circumstance.  

“Depending on the scale of your side hustle, you may have to hire a personal accountant or bookkeeper to help you file your taxes accurately,” he said.

A deduction your side hustle might be eligible for 

Meanwhile, certain side hustles may qualify for a deduction.

These are items that you can subtract from your taxable income.

Those who conduct work from home might be eligible for the home office deduction.

The deduction is available to renters, homeowners and also applies to all types of homes.  

To qualify, the IRS said: "You must regularly use part of your home exclusively for conducting business.

“For example, if you use an extra room to run your business, you can take a home office deduction for that extra room.”
