It caused a flurry of views, gaining over 1.4 million, and sparked fellow user Lulaboo Jenkins to test out the new method.

The results speak for themselves, with Jenkins adding in her video’s caption: “Holy c*** I should have done this sooner! Lord help me this was gross.”

Before testing the hack Jenkins looks stunned as she reviews Kimmy’s Kreations’ video.

“Umm, what?” She said.

“Ok I guess we’re going to see how that goes.”

Jenkins show’s her pot of water, and “old” spoons.

“I’ve had some of these for like years and now I’m very, very scared,” she said.

“These are one of my oldest ones – you can tell because there’s black tips and they’re just kind of awful.

“I’m kind of scared of what comes out.”

With the water boiling Jenkins pops in her wooden spoons.

“Guys, I’ve never thought to do this before – there must be so much grossness in it,” she said.

Following a few moments soaking in the 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 being viewed 48.5 million times.

Just under 16,000 people commented on the video, with many believing she was ruining the spoons.

“That will dry them out and cause (them) to crack,” one worried user wrote.

“Without the coating – that you’re boiling off – it’s likely to trap water and become mouldy,” another commented.

While a third suggested oiling them after cleaning to help keep it from cracking.

Jenkins replied: “Don’t worry, they are going to retreat with mineral oil after they are dry.”

Other commenters took a more light hearted approach, with many saying the wooden spoons were “seasoned” prior to washing.

“That’s why your food tastes so good. Now you’ve boiled out all the flavourings,” one person said.

“It’s just another way to make broth faster,” another wrote.

While a third added: “They get cleaned when I stir the boiling spaghetti.”
