A woman got trapped in her bath after using too much coconut oil, and it was just a bit gas

“I just slide around like a giant greased up potato in a roasting dish.”

WE’RE TOLD WE can use coconut oil for everything – cooking, skincare, oral hygiene, everything – but that doesn’t mean we should.

Case in point: Yesterday, an Australian woman known only as ‘denshan’ shared a plea for help on Imgur after getting landed in a coconut oil-related emergency.

While at home sick with a chest infection and a fever, she took some medicine and went for a ‘relaxing bath’. In her feverish state, she decided to add in some coconut oil:

I am now 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. F*ck home beauty remedies.

She appealed to the good people of Imgur for help – but they had nothing very useful to tell her, only that she shouldn’t use coconut oil in the bath anyway, as it clogs the drain. Thanks, guys.

A half an hour later, she updated to tell everyone that she had finally gotten out:

I escaped by refilling with water and cleaning the bath with the closest soap-like product. Took 30 minutes. White girl idiocy at its greatest.

This is a lesson to all of us: No matter what they say, don’t put coconut oil in the bath unless you want to live there. Thank you, denshan, for going through this for all of us.
