A FLIGHT attendant has revealed the grim reason why holidaymakers should avoid using toilet roll the next time they fly.
TikToker Cierra Mistt often shares videos about her job, giving her followers insight into the life of a flight attendant.
In a recent video on TikTok, Cierra dropped some rather disgusting home truths about the toilets on planes.
She said: "When you go to the bathroom on a plane, don't use the toilet paper.
"Instead use the paper towels because it's higher quality and it won't rip or dissolve like the toilet paper will."
Cierra isn't the first flight attendant to warn passengers away from the flimsy sheets either.
