Have you ever experienced the moment when you find your lost money in the most unexpected of places like the sides of your sofa or an old pair of ragged jeans?
It can be described as one of the most pleasant surprises, right?
Something similar happened with a family who kept losing their medicine and beauty products.
My in laws found a small gap in back of a shelf of their bathroom that has gone unnoticed and products have been falling in and accumulating for nearly 40 years...
The family told they have a medicine cabinet with a tiny hole in it for things to fall into that hole in the cabinet that led to the bathroom. Peter Brown of the Shop Time wrote a post regarding the incident and shared some pictures of the products (some dating back to the '80s!). He told how his wife's father cut open the wall to find the products that had been lost for decades now.
People were especially surprised when they looked at the Jergens lotion bottle for extra dry skin from the ‘80s and the painful Bactine antiseptic.
“The Bactine bottle was the one that got the most reactions from my wife. It has a very particular smell, and it brought her back to her childhood! Plus, the fact that it always stung so bad regardless of the lies on the label. The text she sent me called it ‘the demon’,” Peter told.
“This back bathroom has a built-in style medicine cabinet. It’s got three shelves and like most medicine cabinets, it’s crammed full of stuff. Unfortunately, this one had a small gap in the bottom shelf up against the near wall. It’s only about 1 or 2 inches wide and you really have to crane your neck between the cabinet and bathroom mirror to see it. Most of the items lost would have been pushed to the back and side of the cabinet, so it’s not too surprising that it wasn’t noticeable,” he added.
Other than Jergens lotion and Bactine antiseptic, a bottle of Brut perfume, Band Aids, Pamprin pills, Vivarin caffeine tablets, AquaVelva Musk aftershave, ‘80s Tylenol and Olay oil have been found too.
“I’ve known the hole was there for a little while now, thought maybe one or two things had fallen in. I had just lost something and since we’re on lockdown, I might as well open the wall and get it out.’,” Peter's father in law later told him.
"He was flabbergasted by the volume of items!," Peter added.
The pictures soon went viral on Imgur and the post soon gained 125k views.
We published a similar story in March. A guy named Michael Guirgis from Sydney discovered a haul of vintage toilet paper. He revealed that the rolls were from the 1980s (located in his father’s storage room). The man got excited and made a Facebook post to give them away to those in need.
