The internet is full of wonderful and helpful hacks but this one about cleaning mogodu is definitely not it. Heading to TikTok, a young woman shared a video of herself scrubbing tripe – popularly known as mogodu – with Colgate toothpaste. According to the young lady, this is the best way to make sure that the meat is thoroughly clean.

Many social media users heartily disagreed as they called her out for misleading her followers into cooking minty mogodu.
