Viral Toilet Seat Hack

Another day, another peculiar TikTok hack we didn't know we needed to see. This time, it's related to the handiest appliance in the kitchen - the one and only dishwasher. While we may be used to checking our dishes for that trusty dishwasher-safe sign, we're less likely to search for it on our toilet seat. Thankfully, TikTok influencer Alison Koroly took one for the team and tested what happens when the toilet seat spends time in the dishwasher. Check out the hilarious results below.

The twelve-second clip uploaded to the video-sharing platform shows Koroly's husband taking the seat off the toilet bowl and loading it into the cleaning appliance. "I never knew people did this," she wrote in the video's overlay text. Before anyone could wait and see what happened next, the comments section became filled with disgusted fans who could not believe what the couple had done. 1.9 million views later, they had achieved viral fame if not for anything else.

For all those fans who stuck the video out till the end, they would have been relieved to find out that this was just a joke and that no toilet seats ended up being cleaned in this way. "Our goal is to create entertaining content that people would laugh at and find fun and funny, and lighthearted," Koroly told The Post about their extensive collection of comedic TikTok and Facebook videos. Despite not seeing the prank through, users still felt the need to spread the video far and wide, commenting on the sickening concept it involved. "You can't eat at everybody's house …" one user jokingly commented. "Thanks, I'm now tasting my breakfast for the second time today," laughed another.

Other users seemed to think Korloy and her husband were onto something, vowing to give it a go themselves. "Hold my beer; I'm trying this," one TikToker commented. "Been doing that for years," one viewer claimed. "Also, engine parts come out nice and clean." Before anyone tries this one at home, epidemiologist Dr. Brian Mangum clarified to Family Handyman why it's best to avoid this practice. "Consider the fact that your toilet seat is already full of germs, and you have now potentially transferred those germs to the same dishwasher where you will wash your children's plates after pizza night," he explained. Better luck next time, TikTok; we're not fooling for this one.
