Woman Admits to Washing Toilet Brush in Dishwasher and WTF?
Imagine being at your friend’s house and as she opens the dishwasher to get a clean mug out you spot the toilet brush in there. What do you do? Ignore it or get the hell out of there!
One anonymous woman on Mumsnet shared the disgusting news recently that will definitely put you off your dinner. You see, she’s admitted to using the dishwasher to clean her toilet brush once a month. Oh, but don’t worry, she says she puts it in there on it’s own, not with other plates.
Like that’s any better!!
“I clean my toilet brush in the dishwasher every few months. I just put the brush and holder in, on their own, on a hot wash, and they come out like new,” the post reads.
She continues the story by explaining what happened when her friend came to visit her one day. “A friend popped by this morning for coffee, and I opened the dishwasher to get out a couple of mugs, forgetting that I had put the toilet items in last night. She totally freaked out, saying this is totally disgusting, and re-washed the mugs I had then taken out from the cupboard AND poured boiling water on them before she would allow me to make her coffee!!”
The woman then concludes her post by asking whether or not her friend was being unreasonable.
“Was my friend being unreasonable? The mugs and loo brush were washed in separate loads!! The items are all clean.”
Okay…there’s a lot to unpack here. Give us a minute.
Actually no, it’s pretty simple. Your friend was NOT being unreasonable. Are you serious? You didn’t think she’d flinch when she saw a toilet brush sitting next to her coffee mug in the dishwasher?! In fact if that were us, we’d skip the coffee altogether!
Commenters on Mumsnet agreed. They thought it was a most disgusting practice and couldn’t understand why she would even consider doing that! In fact most of the fellow mothers commented that this practice was “utterly rank” and “absolutely disgusting”.
Sure they say exposing kids to some germs helps build up their immune systems but would you go this far? The theory behind this is that their cutlery and plates tend to have more microbes on them, and this greater exposure throughout childhood helps children to develop stronger antibodies to potential illness. But does that mean eating from poo stained plates? If so, then this woman’s kids would have immune systems that are going to be unstoppable.
But it’s a no from us. What about you?
