Taking a bath seems like a fairly straight forward, no drama, relaxing formality. However, there are some unknown pitfalls that can ruin your relaxation.
There's obvious things like a spider kicking chills somewhere around the tub, or the water being too hot, or, on the flip side, too cold. There's also having to suffer the tap end, should you choose to share a romantic soak with your other half.
Something you'll very rarely have to worry about though, is getting stuck in the bath.
Now, if you've ever somehow ended up lying in a bath during a house party when you're so drunk George Best would have been jealous, then you'll know that worming your way out of the tub is tough. But when you're stone cold sober, it can't be a problem, surely?
Well, Imgur user Denshan has proved to us all that it can be a problem after the sheer amount of coconut oil she added to her bubbles had her sending out an SOS.
The poor girl added a load of the product to her evening bath to try and help ease the pain of her chest infection and fever. She had popped some antibiotics and sleeping pills beforehand, adding to the relaxing ritual, but when it came to the time she had to pull the plug, she couldn't get out.
Any time she moved she'd simply slip about, greased up, unable to grip anything.
"I found some bath salts, lit some candles and poured in some coconut oil," she wrote on Imgur. "Now I'm realising it was too much coconut oil.
"I went to get out after pulling the plug and I just slid 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."
There's yet to be any updates on her situation, meaning that she could very well still be in her tub.
Another odd thing to come across when it comes to bathing is having to avoid profanity on shampoo or shower gel bottles.
Despite this, it's fair to say these grandparents from Stanford-le-hope, Essex, were a bit shocked at what was written on their eight-year-old granddaughter's bath gift set.
After buying young Macy the 'Little Snow Fairy' set from Lush, Richard Shiner found that the shower gel encouraged the user to invite someone into the shower with them.
"They opened their bits and pieces on Christmas night, and Macy undid her one. It was called 'Little Snow Fairy' which to me indicates it's ideal for kids," Richard told The Sun. "I happened to pick up the bottle and was reading aloud how to use it.The instructions on the shower gel says: 'How to use: If you really don't know how to use this, then we suggest you find someone you really like and invite them into the shower with you to demonstrate.'
"I didn't know what to say to her, so I had to pretend it meant she could bath with [her five-year-old brother] Buddy. But that's not really appropriate either.
"It was the only thing I could think of to say to her at the time."
Swallowing his pride Richard decided to phone up Lush and put in a complaint, something he's never done before.
"I phoned up and a girl answered the phone and although she didn't actually laugh, I could tell from her tone of voice that she thought it was fine," he said. "She put me on to the manager and he said, 'They're meant to be tongue in cheek.'
"I said to him: 'It's wrong. If I wanted something like that, I'd have gone to an Ann Summers shop."
So there you have it, bath and shower related nightmares are things that genuinely ruin people's days. Who'd have thought?
