Woman Gets Stuck In Bathtub After Bathing In Coconut Oil

We've all heard about the beauty tip: bathe in coconut oil for soft, smooth skin.

But there's something those people forget to tell us...and that is OIL IS SLIPPERY.

A woman in Australia, known only as "Denshan," was at home sick when she decided to take a bath and try out a home remedy she had heard of.

"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 realizing it was too much coconut oil."

Denshan learned the hard way that pouring oil into an already slippery tub is just a recipe for disaster.

"I am currently stuck in a bathtub."

Denshan likened the experience to "a giant greased up potato in a roasting dish."

It ended up taking her 30 minutes to get out of the tub. She had to refill the tub with water, then use soap to clean down the tub so she had some traction.

I'm glad she managed to get out. And I'm also glad I know never to bathe in coconut oil.
