I asked my husband to clear out my fridge – and he screwed up

At least he tried.

A woman on TikTok shared a hilarious video where she revealed that her husband had smashed the outside of her fridge in an attempt to clean it.

T, who goes by the username @takingcareofcleaning on the social media app, categorized the video as the fourth in a series titled, “Why are men like this.”

The viral video has already reached more than 104,000 views and 9,000 likes.

In the beginning of the video, T shows off the front of her stainless steel fridge, which was now covered in scratches.

“My dear husband, who was home for the holidays, tried to help clean up, and he took steel wool, yes, steel wool, to clean our fridge,” she said.

T continued, stepping back to show a full view of the device, “Now we have these abstract scratches like this. Yes, I have no words people, I have no words.”

In the video’s caption, she also joked, “Steel wood doesn’t mean clean stainless steel 👍🏻.”

For those who may not know, or those whose spouses haven’t ruined their fridge with it yet, steel wool cleaners are those silvery, thread-like scrubs you can find at the drugstore.

While T laughed at her husband’s total cleaning mistake, some people in the comments weren’t so understanding.

“There’s no way he didn’t do that on purpose,” one user wrote in the comments section.

Another agreed, asking, “Would he do it with his car?” No. He certainly knew better.’

“He knew better. Just never want to clean the fridge again,” another wrote.

One person even blamed T for his cleaning blunder.

“Don’t blame men, blame his mother and wife for keeping him useless,” they wrote.

However, some viewers could relate to her and her family’s cleaning issues.

“To be honest…. my mother did the same. some people just don’t think about things,” said a TikTok creator.

Someone else sympathized: “To be honest, I accidentally did this with part of my stove… I wasn’t thinking 😬.”
