Coconut oil is the king of all oils. It's a multifaceted super-product that has proven incredibly beneficial for all aspects of life. From cooking to skin care, coconut oil can do it all.

It also can trap you in a bathtub for an unwanted amount of time, as an Imgur user recently learned.

Denshan wanted to relieve her chest infection by relaxing in a warm bath, surrounded by candles and filled with coconut oil. Except she filled the tub with too much oil and ended up getting stranded in the tub after she drained the water.

She posted her dilemma to the internet, soliciting advice and help from Imgur.

I am currently stuck in a bath

"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. F*** home beauty remedies. SOS," she wrote.

The internet quickly came to her aid, suggesting that she refill the bathtub with water and washout the oil so it's less slippery. Many users then commented on the function of tub mats.
