Rhema, a content creator in Ontario, Canada, shared her lengthy process on TikTok.

At the beginning of the video, Rema can be seen climbing up the Christmas tree to disinfect it. She wrote in the video: "Unpopular opinion: You need to clean your Christmas tree." But some accused her of "performative cleanliness."

Rhema was seen separating the tiers of her artificial tree and placing them individually in a bathtub in the video, which has garnered more than two million views on TikTok.

She then sprays them with a cleaning solution before filling the tub with water and adding dish soap.

One person said: Cleantok is getting outta hand.

A second wrote: The clear water and 2 small pine needles sailing down the drain sent me.

While a third commented: My boss trying to find tasks for me to do when work is slow

Someone else suggested: Is this because the Christmas tree was stored in a damp basement or shed? Wetting the tree does not seem safe because of the spores. The best thing to do if a tree is damp and has mold is to get rid of it.

Just take it outside and blow the dust off with a leaf blower. No need to scrub it like you've been using it to clean toilets. Another added.
