Family Find 40-Year-Old Bathroom Products Which Had Been Disappearing Through Hole In Wall

A family have discovered bathroom products from the 80s and 90s inside the wall behind their medicine cabinet after realising things had been falling down a gap for the last 40 years.

They had never noticed that their bathroom supplies were going missing over the years so were shocked to find some of the things that were left behind.

Pictures of the discovery were shared on Imgur by someone called Peter Brown, who explained how this was all going on at his in-laws' home.

The gap was located behind the family's medicine cabinet which had a hole in the back that they weren't aware of.

When Peter Brown's in-laws finally realised what was happening, it became very apparent just how long things had been falling down the gap for.

The strange treasure included items such as a body lotion believed to date back to the 80s, nail varnish remover, antiseptic spray and cramp relief tablets.

Taking to Twitter, Peter wrote: "My father in law found a small gap in the back of a shelf of their bathroom that has gone unnoticed. Over the last 40 years products have been falling in and accumulating."

He went on to explain: "When he realized it, he cut a hole at the base to investigate."

Speaking to Bored Panda, he said: "This back bathroom has a built-in style medicine cabinet. It's got three shelves and like most medicine cabinets, it's crammed full of stuff.

"Unfortunately, this one had a small gap in the bottom shelf up against the near wall. It's only about 1 or 2 inches wide and you really have to crane your neck between the cabinet and bathroom mirror to see it.

"Most of the items lost would have been pushed to the back and side of the cabinet, so it's not too surprising that it wasn't noticeable."

Peter's post went viral, racking up over 128,000 views. He went on: "I kinda presumed my followers would find the pictures interesting, as it was such an odd thing to happen and a large collection of stuff.

"Most [of it] expired in the '90s, but some were from the '80s as well! The caffeine pills expired August of 1985 and were never opened. They moved into this house in 1980, so that might be one of the older items."
