A woman enjoys cleaning so much that she quit her job and now travels the globe helping ladies in need by scrubbing their homes for free.
In the summer of 2021, Auri Katariina quit her job as a service manager at a cleaning firm in Finland to pursue her distinct passion.
The 29-year-old who has become something of a social media star by sharing her cleaning skills stated, “My aim is to clean for free all over the world and help others while doing something I absolutely enjoy.”
“I’ve always enjoyed cleaning, and two years ago I began putting videos online of me cleaning the homes of relatives and friends.
“Then, one day, a woman requested for my assistance since she was in such dire straits and her home was so disorganized. She had three children and her husband had recently committed suicide, so life was really difficult for her.
Auri, who claims to be “in heaven” whenever she cleans, was overjoyed to assist; in fact, she was “eager” to assist.
“Over the weekend, I cleaned her residence for two days. At the conclusion, she was crying and her children were thanking me with hugs. It was the greatest feeling ever to observe the alteration of their home and their happiness.
The young woman from Tampere has traveled as far as the United States and the United Kingdom to assist those in dire need of decluttering and cleaning.
Now, as a result of her 7.8 million TikTok followers and 2.1 million Instagram followers who watch her popular videos with cleaning tips and before-and-after photographs, a corporate sponsor has offered to cover her expenditures.
She determines where to clean based on online requests, choosing only the filthiest, grimiest homes of the most in need individuals.
“I clean solely for free. My services are not for sale, and I will never charge someone to clean their home.
During the first six months, she was responsible for all travel and product expenses, or approximately 300 euros every visit. The cleaning sponge brand Scrub Daddy then became a sponsor.
Auri now cleans the houses of strangers once a week for two days and develops material for her social media accounts, including lists of her best suggestions, some of which have garnered 24 million views.
“When I enter, I always begin by removing all the trash and decluttering the surfaces. From there, I normally clean the halls first so that I can walk through them, but it doesn’t really matter where you begin—just begin!”
Some of her widespread housekeeping advice
Her most effective method for cleaning ovens and stoves is to use cling film. It is completely magical.
Put oven cleanser and cling film on a dirty stove, wait overnight, and the stains will go; the same is true for the interior of your oven.
“Most of the time, it’s not about the product you use, but rather the time and the tools. If you have limescale in your bathroom, many people inquire about the best product to use, but the most crucial thing is a scraper and metal scouring pad.
The majority of the recommended cleaning products are basic and natural.
“I use only dish soap to clean my toilet and shower; it’s the best stuff ever. It removes grease, and since you have grease on your body in the shower, it can remove all of that.
Auri suggests that for your home office, less is more. “To clean dust, all you need is a microfiber cloth and water; it removes 99 percent of everything, so you don’t need any product.”
Her tool kit consists of only a few basic items: vinegar, dish soap, oven cleaner, power paste from Scrub Daddy, a scourer, a scraper, a dish brush (or old tooth brush)—which is excellent for cleaning tiny crevices—a duster, microfibre cloth, and a Scrub Daddy Sponge, which is appropriately shaped like a smiley face.
She says, “Companies will want to sell you a different cleaner for each space in your home, but this is unnecessary.”
She stated that some jobs require more time than the standard two days. “One house took four days to clean since the female had lived there for six years but was too depressed to clean.
“She was such a beautiful girl, but she was so miserable that she shaved her head to avoid taking a shower. Her bathroom was completely dark, but after a whole day of cleaning, it was so much better.
“The people I assist are frequently in dire straits, but they want to change, so I assist them in taking the next step. Many individuals send me notes after six months or a year to show me their clean homes, which is wonderful.
Auri feels strongly that cleaning should be an enjoyable pastime, not a chore. Observe her perform some enchantment in this video of a disgusting toilet shambles:
