A cleaner’s video has gone viral after she revealed the ‘hidden compartment’ in toasters making them easy to clean – and plenty of people have admitted they never knew it existed.
A video shared on TikTok by professional cleaner Kacie has racked up more than 2.2 million views as she hit out at cleaning ‘hacks’ shared online.
She says: “There are cleaning hacks going around the internet that are not really hacks at all, they make it harder. This week I was sent one. ‘Clean your toaster with a hairdryer’. Just tip it in the bin.”
But during the video, Kacie puts her hand under the toaster to pull out the tray which collects all the crumbs to empty it – and, strangely, it’s blowing people’s minds.
Before you rush angrily to the comments to rage that this is nothing new and is even written in black and white in the toaster manuals, it turns out that hundreds of people were today years old when they found out.
One person commented to say: “There’s a TRAY?!?!?!?”
A second said: “Omg I can’t believe this. I always stare at it and get annoyed because of all the crumbs.”
Another wrote: “Wait? Toasters have trays?”
One hit back to say: “OK I understand ya’ll not understanding about some things but, ya’ll didn’t know about toaster trays??? Like your house could catch on fire.”
Kacie racks up millions of views sharing her top tips to tackle tough problems around the home, including cleaning advice for your bathroom and kitchen
