TikTok user DabzNDawgz tested out the "viral grass hack" on her own lawn.
Though it's unclear where the hack originated, her video has racked up 3.9 million views since 2021.

She doesn't specify how much toilet paper to use, but she unrolls several squares into her water.
Next, she pours a bag of grass seed into the water and toilet paper mixture and mixes it by hand.
Finally, she pulls globs of the sopping, seed-covered toilet paper out and spreads it over a patch in her lawn where the grass has died.
When she returns to the spot three days later with her camera, the bald patch has grown in.
