To be grossed out that my husband used my exfoliating glove

First world problem alert.

I am proper pissed off, would you be???

DH went for a shower last night, and came out and said, 'feel how soft my arms are...' So I was like 'erm OK...' They were suitably soft.

Then he said 'I used your exfoliating glove!'

EWWWWWW! Was my reaction. He used to have his own and I asked him why he didn't use his own. He claimed he couldn't find it. (Couldn't be arsed to look more like!)

To me, that's like using someone's flannel, and to a lesser extent, like using their toothbrush! I am going to be wondering now if he DOES use my flannel and toothbrush, and I have horrible visions of him using my flannel to wipe his arse, and my toothbrush to scrub the loo after he's used it! shock

I have to go get a new exfoliating glove now, and also feel the need to go buy a new flannel and toothbrush too, and keep them well hidden!

Would you be pissed off or am I just a drama queen? grin

I'd be surprised if my husband used ANY exfoliating glove!

I may be in the minority but I figure if I can have sex with someone then they can use my exfoliating glove. Worse things I could come in contact with! Saying that I no longer use mine at all after being informed of how much skin bacteria they actually hang on to after showering.

I suppose it is a bit gross but I wouldn't be annoyed to the point of starting a thread. Tell him to buy you a new one then move on.

Unless he is exfoliating his arse, is it that bad?

YawningHippo Sat 18-Feb-17 09:31:12

Also agree with pissy. I'd be surprised if my DP could pick an exfoliating glove out of a line up!!

Well, if it was a random person using it I'd be in full agreement but your husband? grin you're living amongst & breathing in each others discarded dead skin cells all the time anyway...

Easy. Drama queen!

Bettyspants Sat 18-Feb-17 09:32:44

I wouldn't be bothered. Hoping he kept it away from his bum and feet though...

Nicketynac Sat 18-Feb-17 09:33:44

I put mine in the washing machine so it wouldn't bother me at all. YABU

I couldn't be arsed to be bothered by this. I've shared bodily fluids with my husband so an exfoliating glove is nothing.

Like Neep I was going to ask what other...erm..areas.. he has used it on. At least he didn't say 'wow, feel how soft my bum is'

Err... I presume you kiss/have sex etc? Wouldn't think twice about my DH using my exfoliating glove (not that he'd have a clue what one is)

LoveMyLittleSuperhero Sat 18-Feb-17 09:40:39

If I can sleep with the bloke and live with him then he can use my exfoliating glove. We've certainly shared worse grin

NeepNeepNeep Sat 18-Feb-17 09:42:11

If I'm honest I thought the OP was going to reveal he used your glove for a bit of special man alone time. He likes it rough. Then smooth.

WhooooAmI24601 Sat 18-Feb-17 09:42:47

DH wouldn't know what to even do with an exfoliating glove. That said he did use my muslin cloth and Liz Earle yesterday and proclaimed how lovely his skin felt. I don't mind it; we've reached the point in our marriage where we've shared so much worse than a bit of dead skin.

Elledouble Sat 18-Feb-17 09:43:41

Put it in the washing machine. Problem solved. smile

FenellaMaxwellsPony Sat 18-Feb-17 09:45:00

WTF? Do you not have sex with your husband? hmm

ExitStage Sat 18-Feb-17 09:55:30

He's been flossing his arse crack with your flannel.........

littlefrog3 Sat 18-Feb-17 10:04:32

PMSL at some of these replies! grin

Made me laugh. smile

Yeah that's the thing, what has he been using it for? His arse, his bollocks? F-ck knows! shock That's what freaks me out. PMSL.

It's just the thought of the dead skin cells on it. I mean, come on, surely I have a right to be a fluffly princess drama queen about this?

And yeah he's my husband, but ewwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww! Is there bollock skin on it? I use it on my face FFS!

What on earth is an exfoliating glove? Daily bathing, washing and showering and personal cleanliness are very important, sure, but there is no possible point in sandpapering yourself into the bargain, surely?

NeepNeepNeep Sat 18-Feb-17 10:06:12

No you don't have the right to be a fluffy princess drama queen. We will all now use your glove as punishment for the word "fluffy". I'll go first.

Strygil Sat 18-Feb-17 10:06:24

And more than that if you share a toilet seat or a hand-towel with him you have shared a great deal worse than dead skin.

RhiWrites Sat 18-Feb-17 10:06:43

Chuck it in the washing machine. And wash your flannels too. You don't need to buy a new one - just clean the one you've got.

ExitStage Sat 18-Feb-17 10:07:09

Ah......but do your ever have his bollocks on your face? Your argument might fall down there!
