El usuario de TikTok @ ramdeep.osahan publicó un video a principios de este año que muestra un “truco casero fácil” para limpiar el exterior de una sartén sucia.
El clip — que se publicó en mayo — shows an upside down pan covered with burned-on grime before @ramdeep.osahan sprinkles salt and baking soda on the pan and then adds liquid dish soap.
He then scrubs the pan with steel wool, puts paper towels on top of the pan and pours some white vinegar over the paper towels.
As he takes the wet paper towels off the pan, the grime easily wipes off the pan, leaving it bright and shiny.
Since it was posted, el video ha sido visto más de 66.9 millones de veces.
Reactions were mixed among the tens of thousands of commenters, with some saying that the hack didn’t work, while others thanked @ramdeep.osahan for the advice.
The hack gained even more attention when online personality Dan Shaba tested it himself.
As Shaba pulled off the paper towel from his own pan, he seemed stunned that the grease had come off.
“That’s like 99% perfect,” he said of the trick as he showed off the gleaming pan.
Shaba’s video, which was posted just a few weeks after the original clip from @ramdeep.osahan, has been viewed more than 44.8 million times as of Saturday morning.
Similar to the original clip, some commenters complained that the trick didn’t work.
After one commenter said they had tried it and it failed, Shaba replied: “Then you must have done it wrong cause this works 100%.”
