New Trend Has People Putting Toilet Paper In The Fridge
Social media has started some WiLD trends throughout the years. There have been some creative dances, some outrageous photos, and some other crazy trends, but the newest one might be the oddest one yet. Now people are putting their toilet paper in the fridge.
Now before you start knocking the new trend, there is actually a decent reason why people are putting the TP in the fridge. At one point one Tik Tok user had people convinced the frozen toilet paper served as a great on-the-go ice pack, but that wasn’t the real reason why. The truth is, toilet paper helps your refrigerator smell better.
Thanks to @smartfoxlifehacks, toilet paper now has a new purpose. If you have any bad smells coming from your fridge, all you have to do is stick a roll of TP in there. Turns out the smells from your fridge are from excess moisture. Over time that causes mildew and mold, which then causes some funky smells. Because toilet paper is very absorbent, it kills the moisture therefore destroying the smell.
Even though the toilet paper trick works, Yahoo still recommends using Baking Soda to clean out your fridge. While toilet paper absorbs moisture, it doesn’t neutralize acids that cause odors the way baking soda does. But if you’re still thinking about using toilet paper, here are some rules of thumb to follow.
- Switch out your rolls every 3 weeks.
- Don’t put your rolls next to anything that will get it wet.
- Place the roll in the back of the fridge.
- Don’t try to reuse the roll after it’s done in the fridge! (Believe me, you won’t want to after you smell it)
