Kimmy’s Kreations wowed everyone when she took to the platform to show off her laundry hack.
All you need is a large pot, water, a hot stove and of course a few dirty wooden spoons.
“I’m going to clean my wooden spoons really well, you boil some water and boom,” she said.
This caused a flurry of views, reaching over 1.4 million, and prompted fellow Lulaboo Jenkins user to test the new method.
The results speak for themselves: Jenkins added in the caption to her video, “Damn, I should have done this sooner! God help me, it was terrible.”
Before testing the hack, Jenkins looks stunned as she watches a video of Kimmy’s Kreations.
– Um, what? She said.
“Okay, I think we’re going to see how it goes.”
Jenkins shows off his pot of water and “old” spoons.
“I’ve had some of them for years and now I’m very, very scared,” she said.
“These are some of my oldest ones – you can tell because they have black tips and are just awful.
“I’m a little afraid of what’s coming out.”
When the water boils, Jenkins pops in his wooden spoons.
“Guys, it never crossed my mind to do this before – there must be so much rudeness in it,” she said.
After a few minutes of immersion in boiling water, Jenkins removes the spoons.
She then shows her followers the water.
“Oh my God, I can’t even see the bottom anymore,” she said.
Her video went viral on TikTok with 48.5 million views.
Just under 16,000 people commented on the video, with many believing that she was ruining the spoons.
“This will dry them out and cause (them) to crack,” wrote one worried user.
“Without the coating you’re evaporating, it’s more likely to retain water and become moldy,” commented another.
While a third suggested oiling them after cleaning to keep them from cracking.
Jenkins replied, “Don’t worry, they’re going to back out with mineral oil after they’re dry.”
Other commentators took a more light-hearted approach, with many saying that the wooden spoons were “seasoned” before being washed.
That’s why your food is so delicious. Now you’ve boiled out all the flavors,” said one person.
“It’s just another way to make broth faster,” wrote another.
A third added: “They clean up when I stir boiling spaghetti.”
