Carolina supporters were wary of the hacks, calling them “messmakers” that don’t really clean surfaces.
“I don’t trust this advice,” said one woman.
“It doesn’t work at all, I tried it, super excited for nothing because it didn’t take anything away,” another commented.
“It feels like a waste of money when there are things literally designed to do that,” another woman said.
“Or you could buy a cheaper cleanser,” wrote another.
Many Carolina followers took issue with the mother’s claim that the product would sanitize her toilet brush.
Does shaving foam work as a cleanser?
* Shaving foam has cleansing properties because it contains compounds called surfactants
* Surfactants consist of detergents and fats. They reduce the surface tension between water and the object on which it is placed and allow liquids to flow easily over surfaces, allowing dirt to be easily removed
*Lather also contains 30% soap plus emulsifiers and emollients
* It has antibacterial properties
* The product is gentle yet effective due to its ingredients. It is ideal for cleaning, ovens, toilets, jewelry, carpets and polishing stainless steel and glass.

‘What is the advantage of using shaving cream over traditional cleaning products with antibacterial agents?’ a man asked.
‘How does shaving foam disinfect?’ asked a woman.
“Shaving cream is not a disinfectant,” said another.
However, some fans approved of the hacks, especially for its power on carpet stains.
“I used it on a carpet stain where nothing worked. Amazing! I had no foam, it was gel. It worked great,” one woman said.
Others found the fact that the hacks worked even more disturbing than if they didn’t.
“It makes you wonder what these guys are putting on their face,” one woman said.
“Sometimes you wonder what’s in these products we put on our bodies,” another wrote.
