“The idea of ‘Everything In A Jar’ came from when I was really young. I always loved messing around with the chemicals in my parent’s kitchen, mixing cleaners together and leaving them under my bed for a long extended period of time,” Doka said.

“In hindsight, that wasn’t very good because it kind of destroyed the bed, but now that I’m a little bit older, I can do it a lot safer.

“I’m just genuinely interested in seeing what happens to certain items when you leave them in things like vinegar, vodka, whiskey and even muriatic acid.”

Doka said he is cherishing the success and is amazed by how many of his followers live in Queen City.

“The craziest thing, even as near as (Sunday), I went out to McDonald’s, went through the drive-thru, and the guy stopped me,” Doka said.

“He said, ‘You’re the guy that makes TikToks right?’ I said yeah and he tells everybody in the back.
