About Melissa Maker

melissa maker

Melissa Maker is the internet’s favorite accidental cleaning expert! They say it takes 10,000 hours to become an expert at something, and Melissa has way more than 10,000 hours of experience cleaning and organizing and teaching others to be proficient cleaners, too – whether they love or hate the job. 

While Melissa has spent the last fifteen years (and counting) cleaning and talking about cleaning, she is not a cleaning lover. Instead, it’s her goal to help herself and others clean quickly and well, so everyone can spend more time doing what they love and less time cleaning. 

In 2006, Melissa launched a cleaning service called Clean My Space in her hometown of Toronto, Canada spurred by the desire to help people with the thing she hated most (and knew others did, too); cleaning. Five years later, in 2011, Melissa made her first how-to YouTube video to help promote her cleaning service. That video blew up, and Melissa realized she loved teaching others how to clean. So, she decided to start creating digital content in tandem with her other business. 

Since 2011, Melissa has grown the Clean My Space YouTube channel to 1.87 million subscribers. And Melissa’s ever-growing fan base, spread across 165 countries, tunes in to her personal Instagram, the Clean My Space Instagram page, the Clean My Space Facebook page, the Clean My Space website, the email newsletter The Dirty Dish, and (the newest addition) the Clean My Space TikTok to learn all things cleaning. This includes everything from developing a daily cleaning routine to how to deep clean to cleaning hacks and secrets for decluttering and organizing your space.  

In 2016, Melissa even founded a microfiber cleaning tools company called Maker’s Clean to deliver the best possible cleaning tools to her growing audience. Several Maker’s Clean products have won awards with Good Housekeeping! And in 2017, her book, Clean My Space: The Secret to Cleaning Better, Faster and Loving Your Home Every Day, hit shelves and became an instant bestseller. Now, Melissa’s job is to teach others how to clean like a pro. Melissa is all about cleaning smarter, not harder. That’s why she shares her favorite cleaning tips, hacks, products and tools, and so much more so you can get the most out of your cleaning routine.

Over the years, Melissa has been a guest on the Today Show,, The Tamron Hall Show, The Marilyn Dennis Show, The Social, and Rachael Ray and has been featured in magazines including Real Simple, In Style, Family Circle, Chatelaine, Women’s Health, and more to talk about, you guessed it, cleaning! Plus, Melissa has done so many collaborations with her favorite cleaning brands, including Dyson, Scotch-Brite, and Tide.
