This Horrifying Kitchen Storage Fail Is Going Viral — And You Can’t Help but Laugh
There are plenty of things you can do “wrong” in the kitchen — most of which really don’t have any effect on the space whatsoever. You don’t maximize space in your fridge? Oh, well. You eat pantry staples after they’ve expired? You’ll probably be fine. But, as it turns out, there is one thing you can do in the kitchen that *is,* in fact, dangerously wrong. And a now-viral tweet proves it.
Creative kitchen storage solutions can be great for small spaces or kitchens with unique features or dimensions — then, there are creative solutions that are just comically bad. One Twitter user went to an Airbnb and had to share a photo of what they found to be an interesting use for a glass bottle.
Yep, it’s as ridiculous as it looks. “What would you guess this liquid in this container sitting next to the stove in the kitchen in this airbnb is? That’s right, it’s liquid f*cking soap,” the tweet is captioned.
Not only is the container in the kitchen exactly where guests might be cooking — it’s the exact same color as olive oil … and stored in an olive oil dispenser. I’m guessing this guest wasn’t the only one who thought so. In the replies, they shared that their poor niece added it to her pasta, and, well, wasted a perfectly good meal by no fault of her own.
The tweet garnered thousands of retweets and hundreds of likes in just a few days, and dozens of other Twitter users chimed in on how horrifying this soap dispenser choice was — and shared similar decisions they’d seen in their own lives.
That’s not so sweet.
I’ll just leave this one here.
Lived with someone who filled an empty Kikkoman bottle with malt vinegar, but honestly it worked on my rice so no harm done— Ferengi Liaison to the Janissaries (@Soviet_Cola) May 15, 2023
Sounds like it could’ve been worse.
My mom put balsam oil in the balsamic vinegar bottle once. Yes it ruined the salad— Brie (like the cheese) (@bookandthebone) May 15, 2023
This was an honest mistake.
So, Airbnb host, if you’re reading this, you might consider choosing a soap that isn’t the exact same hue as olive oil. Or, at the very least, don’t put it next to the stove.
