Mum ‘mortified’ after daughter, 5, took lube to school thinking it was sanitiser

A mum was ‘mortified’ after discovering her daughter had taken her lube to school thinking it was hand sanitizer.

She believes the youngster spotted the Ann Summers’ logo and presumed it was hers.

Louise, from Livingstone, said: ‘I was like “oh my god, why have you got that?” and she said “it’s for my hands, for the germs”.’

She told The Sun: ‘I found it really funny, but I was mortified at the same time.’

Louise explained that she had bought a £20 balloon from Ann Summers which is popped to reveal a mystery item, adding: ‘Mine was two bottles of lube and some perfume, but I’d just left it in the box, it hadn’t been touched.

‘I went to wash Summer’s school jacket the other day and I was emptying out her pockets and I found it.’

She added: ‘Summer said she liked it because it felt hot and smooth – and it turns out it’s the warming lube I’d won!’

Louise said: ‘I had to tell her “this is for mummy, this needs to go in the cupboard”.

‘And then I asked her if she’d used it with her friends and she said yes. I was so embarrassed.’

The mum, who works in retail, has no idea how long Summer had been using the lube but thinks it can’t have been more than a couple of days as none of her teachers spotted the blunder.

She said: ‘The prospect of doing the school run after half term has crossed my mind, I’ll be pretty embarrassed to face her teachers.

Louise says it’s typical of Summer, who spent lockdown playing pranks on her older brothers, Liam, 16 and Shaun, 14.

She added that she plans on reminding the youngster of the hilarious tale when she turns 18.
