In a video, Dasilva mopped six different rooms with two different mopping mixtures.

The ultimate goal was to determine which one picked up more dirt.

The first mixture used bleach and cold water, while the second was a mix of two cascade pods, six caps of pine-sol, and hot water.

After mopping the floors with each mixture, Dasilva dumped the dirty mop water in the toilet for comparison's sake.

"Second one because water is hot," an additional person commented.

Someone else advised: "Cold water doesn’t loosen up the dirt, and using tide pods is just going to build. I would just use hot water and a disinfectant."

With a tip for mopping, someone wrote: "You have to do a just water mop after using pods.

"The soap residue will build on your floor after a while."

"Friendly reminder, don't use pine-sol if you have pets it's toxic to them!" a final person cautioned.
