1. Weird Liquid

“The liquid on top of sour cream. Water that doesn’t drain in the shower. The weird standing liquid, I guess,” someone said.

2. Wet Food

Another person agreed and added, “Emptying out the sink strainer.”

“Ugh. When you touch it, your skin is sticky, especially if you can’t get to a sink to wash it off immediately. Then stuff sticks to your skin, and that nasty layer of black lint-like stuff starts to appear on the stickiness,” someone said.

5. Bones

“Hair when it’s not attached to someone. My fiancée’s head of hair? Beautiful, and I love to run my fingers through it. Yet having to remove one single of her hairs off the bar of soap? Good God,” someone said.

9. Bandages
