Brilliant or Gross? Putting Your Toilet Seat in the Dishwasher

Here’s another viral hack that’s got the internet divided.  Someone on Instagram posted a video of how to deep-clean your toilet seat.  Just unscrew it from the bowl and pop it in your Dishwasher.  (!!!)

Most people who’ve commented seem to think it’s gross, but a small sliver of the internet thinks it’s brilliant.

The main pros are:  Every nook and cranny gets clean, especially if your dishwasher has a “sanitize” setting that super-heats the water.

The main cons are:  Couldn’t leftover fecal particles end up on your dishes?  In the video, they actually put it in WITH their dishes, not on its own.

A few people pointed out that from a bacteria standpoint, toilet seats aren’t actually that gross compared to things like doorknobs, or your phone.

We’re not sure if that’s an argument for or against it though.
