Woman gets trapped in bath after bathing in coconut oil

A woman became a prisoner in her own bath yesterday, after bathing in too much coconut oil. The woman, who wishes to remain anonymous for obvious reasons, became far too slippy to get out of her bath once the water had drained away.

Her boyfriend wasn't going to be home for three hours, so she asked the internet for help, posting a picture of her predicament to Imgur, as well as text explaining she was currently "sliding around like a giant greased up potato in a roasting dish".

"Here is a funny and current story. I am stuck in a bath. I can't actually get out of my bath tub. Why?"

"I've go a chest infection and some fever so I'm home sick. I also can't turn my head. 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 realising it was too much coconut oil.

Went to get out after pulling the plug and I just slide around like a giant greased up potato in a roasting dish. There is no traction. No grip. Just me and my fat body slipping around covered in oil. Fuck home beauty remedies. SOS"

The internet was actually surprisingly helpful on this one, and offered her tips on how to get out, including "Use soap" and "slide side to side until you build enough momentum to slide out".

One person suggested:

"You have your phone – call a friend…or call the emergency number and they will send help" But because nobody wants to be that person who phones the fire service whilst covered in coconut oil, she chose instead to refill the bath and float her way out of the situation.

"I don't have any soap around. Makes my skin itchy. I'm trying the re fill technique. All valid and appreciated ideas. Refilling the bath now."

Ten minutes later she updated:

"Escaped. I had some face mask tub I used as soap. Thanks for the help team. Send pizza for celebration."

The Australian woman says she only used 400 ml of coconut oil.
