This mom is blowing TikTok’s mind with her toilet seat cleaning hack, causing thousands of people to run to their bathrooms to see if their own toilet does this!

TikToker and life hack extraordinaire Sara (@shessunday) went viral when her toilet seat cleaning hack hit the “For You Page” on the popular app, garnering over 2 million views — and it’s no wonder why!

Entitled “Things you should know but you don’t know part 3,” Sara’s brilliant video explains the easy way to give your toilet the deep-clean it probably needs — if you don’t already know this hack, that is!

As Sara demonstrates, some toilet seats can be completely unclipped — allowing you to scrub down and sanitize the yucky, hard-to-reach spot behind the seat.

But as some TikTokers pointed out, not all toilet seats can be unclipped in such a way.

So, always on the lookout for ways to help her followers, Sara made sure to share the Amazon link to her easily removable toilet seat — and TikTokers rejoiced!

‘Whaaaaaaa?? I’ve been unscrewing the seat lids all this time…’

But those who did happen to own the same type of toilet seat as Sara were shocked to discover the easy way to remove it.

“Thank you thank you. I’ve been using an old toothbrush to clean it, phew. I’m so happy I saw this,” cried one user.

“What?!? I’ve been using q-tips… And after doing this, it’s safe to say q-tips do not do the job…” another user wrote.

“Omg I’ve needed to know this. I’ve been doing this the hard way all along!” wrote another user.

“Whaaaaaaa?? I’ve been unscrewing the seat lids all this time…” exclaimed another user.

“Omg thank you so much!! This is way easier than unscrewing the whole thing!” another user commented.

So, if you suspect you have this special removable toilet seat, be sure to give Sara’s brilliant toilet seat cleaning hack a try!

And if you don’t, well, Amazon is just a quick click away! Happy cleaning!
