Perplexed...

The other day I stuck some carrot shreds down the disposal and it plugged up AGAIN for, oh I don't know, the 12th time this month? Instead of plunging it Jeremy got down and dirty and pulled the entire disposal out and cleaned the pipes. Guess what he found. You'll never guess.

One fully intact dishcloth.
A DISHCLOTH, people!!!
How in the word does a dishcloth make it through the disposal unscathed?? Seriously, there was not a hole or a frayed edge on that thing!! I don't get it.

Nasty, and interesting all in one. How did that happen? I hate it when things get stuck in my disposal, and especially when my sink doesn't drain! UGH! Glad you found the problem!

That must have been a full-on magic trick! I wish I had a magic disposal.

Heather said...

I don't know!! But it has been down there for a few weeks from the looks of things.

Lindsay said...

CRAZY! Good thing he checked!

Um, gross.

What the.....? How the.....?

I hope you threw that puppy away.

That reminds me of the lady that got sewn up after surgery with a full size surgical towel inside of her: It was there for years!!

That was pretty lucky that Jeremy decided to take it apart and found that thing. I'll be pondering and puzzling over this for days. So wierd!

Even though it's pretty nasty, it's quite amazing too.

Somewhere in the plumbing of our sweet town, there are a pair of Buzz Lightyear underwear floating around courtesy of Josh when he was potty training.

This will go down in history as one of life's greater mysteries. Question: Can I hire Jeremy to come do the same for my garbage disposal?

Marilyn said...

That is crazy! I'm stumped.

Sara said...

Only in the life of a mother could a whole dish cloth go down the garbage disposal!

what a disturbing tale. . .once in my college apt. (6 girls/one shower) our shower continually plugged. OUr landlord pulled out a washcloth. how that thing got through the drain holes, no one knows. It was truly nasty!

Jan said...

I am so glad I was not there to smell that thing. Glad you sale scentsy. This dishcloth could be classified as a "disposal diaper"
Sick Heather this is just sick. Glad you found the problem though.

Maybe it was density, I mean destiny.

Kristi said...

Wow. Way to go Jeremy. Hey, maybe since you guys found a whole dishcloth in your pipes, we might find my wedding ring in ours! Worth a look.

Melissa said...

Well, that's good that he dug it out! That is really weird that it didn't have holes in it... maybe it's magic :)

I think that classifies as grody to the max! I had to plunge my sister's sink when I babysat a couple years ago. Maybe a stray dishtowel found its way down her pipes, too. I hope Jeremy tightened those pipes really well because having those pipes come apart while you're disposing away some tasty leftover plate crusties is really disgusting. That's happened to me twice now--like cleaning nasty kid vomit out of the entire cabinet! Thanks to Mel Z. those disposal-vomit-cleaning days are history!
