This offbeat toilet paper hack has gone viral on Tiktok. See what you think

The latest TikTok hack: Putting toilet paper in the refrigerator. According to fans of the practice, toilet paper helps absorb disgusting odors.

Baking soda is typically used to keep refrigerators smelling fresh, and only needs to be replaced every three months. However, toilet paper apparently works in a pinch.

The paper supposedly helps neutralize odors, and works for about three weeks.

However, don't use the toilet paper for wiping after it's been in the fridge! 

Surprisingly, even Parade Magazine publicized this writing:

While it may not be the most appetizing sight, the bath tissue absorbs the moisture in the air that can contribute to mold, mildew and foul smells, according to Parade.

Baking soda — which only needs to be swapped every three months compared to TP’s three weeks — is more commonly used to neutralize odors, and, according to Parade, the cost-effective option works better at eliminating both the excess moisture and acids that produce odors.

Toilet paper, however, will do the job if you’re in a pinch.
