TikTok users aren’t feeling too bubbly after learning what happens to half-used hotel soap.
It is unclear whether the video was taken at the recycling operations center in Orlando or Las Vegas.
“Hotels throw out millions of bars of used soap every week,” a Science Insider reporter says in the video. “But they don’t have to go in the trash.
“The used soap comes from thousands of hotels around the world, adding up to about 1.4 million rooms.”
The process starts when the used bars are placed into a machine called a refiner, which grates the used bars and cleans any dirt and hair left on the top layers.
The refiner then pushes out even noodle-like strands, which are then heated and mixed into water. They are also bleached for seven or eight minutes to kill bacteria.
The sanitized batch then travels to another refiner before being molded into good-as-new, individual bars of soap.
Uploaded last month, the TikTok has more than 22.7 million views — and thousands of comments from users not feeling soap-er stellar about the process.
“Aaaaand I’m bringing my own soap,” one person declared.
“Way simpler to stop using solid soap in hotels and just use the liquid one in sealed dispensers attached to the wall,” someone else suggested.
“The idea of someone’s pub hairs making it in just rubs me the wrong way,” another shuddered.
Meanwhile, others called the recycled process “amazing,” “genius,” and “really smart.”
