Mom Confessions Mom Confessions

I just covered my couches in canola oil today unknowingly.

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post

I got out the Febreze to freshen up my couch and love seat. I sprayed it ALL over, really focusing on this one cushion I thought smelled not so fresh. I left it there and went on about my business. My DH and I went to sit down later and the couch still looked wet so I touched it. It felt weird and kind of sticky. I then turn on the main light and look at it closer. I go over and start feeling on it and it's oily. I went and grabbed the Febreze bottle and it was filled with CANOLA OIL! Not Febreze. Talk about PISSED! My DH had decided to put oil in a fracking FEBREZE bottle of all things then not bother to peel the sticker off and write a label on it with a Sharpie so I would know it's oil! Fail, fail, fail!!! Lol. I am only laughing now because it came out. Otherwise I would have got a nail gun out and stapled his ass to a tree if it hadn't. 

What's something your DH has done that was just really stupid?

Quoting Anonymous:

Because I didn't smell it. Canola oil has a very vague smell. I can barely smell it. The bottle smelled like febreze still. 

Quoting OnTheCrazyTrain:

yea ok. Dont make sense but w.e btw there is a distinct diff in canola oil smell and febreeze how can you not tell the diff???

He wasn't using it for food. He was spraying the squeaky cabinets and main doors.

Quoting OnTheCrazyTrain:

My ex used to pledge our linoleum floors. Until I was pregnant, skated across the kitchen, slammed into a wall and almost fell on my face. I ripped him a new asshole and I don't think he ever cleaned again:/

My husband has done so really stupid things over the years. I can't pinpoint just one.

I threw the cushion casings in the washing machine and washed them in hot water, then he took a rag and hot water and washed down the rest of the couch. 

Quoting 2.b.con.10.Ud:

 LOL, but what did you wash the cushions or couch with to get the oil out?  I don't have a stupid story to share at the moment.
