A mother found what she thought was a sweet smelling bar of soap in her bathroom after returning from a business trip.
Ashford Evans said she arrived home after a two-hour drive from the airport to a quiet house, Babble reported.
“I was greeted by a sweet citrus smell. The entire bathroom seemed to have been scrubbed just before my arrival. I looked around astonished that my husband would think to clean the house just before my arrival … and that’s when I saw it,” she wrote, according to Babble.
She was referring to an object that appeared to be a bar of soap.
“One of the children’s cereal bowls was sitting on the shelf with what seemed to be an old bar of soap sitting in it. I didn’t remember buying grapefruit scented soap but it could’ve been from years ago. They have a tendency to dig up things long forgotten and put them on display for me,” she added.
The next morning, she had the chance to ask her children where it had come from.
“Meeny found it in the boys bathroom at Tae Kwon Do and brought it home,” her daughter told her.
“And that’s when it hit me. It wasn’t some upscale boutique $15 soap I had been caressing for the last 12 hours. It was a urinal cake. … A URINAL CAKE!!!! A urinal cake from the public gym I take my 5 year old for Tae Kwon Do three times a week. A urinal cake that has been peed on by at least 1000 strange little boys that I just held against my cheek!!!!!” Evans wrote.
She responded quickly to the situation.
“WASH YOUR HANDS, YOUR FACE, OH GOD WASH EVERYTHING,” she said to her daughter.
Evans struggled to describe how she felt upon finding out what the object was.
“All I could think about was how many surfaces and items in my house had been touched and defiled by this thing. I was sick to my stomach,” she told The Huffington Post.
Evans was not the only one feeling queasy. Her husband found out about the urinal cake after reading her Facebook post.
“When he answered the phone he was making gagging sounds. I asked him what was wrong and he said ‘I just saw your Facebook post. I had no idea what that thing was. I thought it was a piece of dried fruit: I almost tasted it. WHAT IF I HAD TASTED IT?'” she wrote, according to Babble.
