A mother from Scotland was mortified after discovering that her 5-year-old daughter had been bringing lube to school, mistaking it for a hand sanitizer.
The 36-year-old Louise Hosie found a bottle of “Heat Wave, a lubricant under the Ann Summers brand, in her daughter’s coat.
While she found the discovery “really funny”, it also made her feeling “mortified.”
Louise said in an interview that she had won the product from an Ann Summers’ balloon, along with a bottle of perfume.
“I’d just left it in the box, it hadn’t been touched,” she said.
“Two days ago, I was washing Summer’s school jacket and realised she’d actually been taking it to school,” she explained.
“Because her name is Summer and the bottle had Ann Summers on it, I think she thought it was hers.”
When she asked her daughter about the bottle, the girl explained that she used it to sanitize her hands “so [she] didn’t get germs.”
The girl continued that she liked the gel because if felt “hot and smooth”.
“It’s the one that goes hot and tingly. It’s just really funny. I told her ‘This is mummy’s’,” Louise added.
“I asked if she’d sanitised her friends’ hands and she said yes.”
Louise admitted that she has absolutely no idea as to how long Summer had been using the lube, and was embarrassed by the thought that a teacher may have found out her innocent child’s mistake.
She had confiscated the lube and explained to Summer that it needed to stay in the cupboard.
Due to the hilarious blunder, Louise’s friends and family started teasing her and called her “Lubey Lou”.
As embarrassing as it is, Louise said she still plan to remind her daughter about the mix-up when she gets older.
“It will be funny for when she turns 18. I might put a picture on her birthday cake!”
