A Woman Went Overboard With Coconut Oil In Her Bath And It Was Hilarious
Coconut oil is absolutely everywhere at the moment. It's in our food, it's in our arts and crafts, it's in our beauty products, it's even in our television programmes (remember that episode of Dragon's Den where there were about three coconut oil entrepreneurs in a row?)
To be fair, coconut oil is great; it's healthy and it's a brilliant alternative to that dreadful palm oil stuff which is in a lot of foods and is terrible for the environment (and they kill orangutans to get it!)
But, there are a few downsides to coconut oil, especially when you use a little too much of the stuff. Imgur user Denshan from Queensland in Australia found out the hard way when she decided to pour 400ml of the stuff into her bath.
Writing in a post on the image sharing site, Denshan explained:
Here is a funny and current story. I am stuck in a bath. I can't actually get out of my bath tub. Why?
I've go a chest infection and some fever so I'm home sick. I also can't turn my head. Took some antibiotics and a Valium and thought- i will have a relaxing bath. I found some bath salts. Lit some candles and poured in some coconut oil- now I am realising it was too much coconut oil. Went to get out after pulling the plug and I just slide around like a giant greased up potato in a roasting dish. There is no traction. No grip. Just me and my fat body slipping around covered in oil. Fuck home beauty remedies. SOS
Yep. In case, like us, you skim-read that story at first, let's make it clear. This poor woman was stuck in her bath. She used so much coconut oil that she couldn't even grab hold of anything to get herself out of there.
In the comments she explained that she thought she was going to have to wait until her boyfriend got home from work before she could get out of the bath - she was that slippery.
Eventually the woman explained that she escaped by filling the bath with water:
I escaped by refilling with water and cleaning the bath with closet soap like product. Took 30 mins. White girl idiocy at its greatest.
Remember, folks, stay safe with coconut oil!
