A woman who realised the bar of soap she'd spent days washing her hands with was actually a block of cheese has gone viral yet again on social media and people have "so many questions".
During the Covid pandemic, we all had it hammered into us just how important it is to regularly wash your hands but while one woman was avidly following the advice she later discovered she'd been making an embarrassing mistake.
Miley, from Vancouver, Washington, had been regularly scrubbing her hands with a small bar of orange soap kept by her kitchen sink but only realised days later it hadn't been working because it was a chunk of cheddar.

Taking to Reddit to tell the hilarious tale she shared a picture of herself holding the cheesy soap imposter above her sink, captioning the post: "Just realized my soap wasn’t working because it’s literally a block of cheese."
The post, which recently went viral on Twitter, has left people baffled as to how she could have possibly mistaken the cheese for soap.
"I have so many questions," one person said.
Another questioned: "Did she not once think 'This soap smells like cheesy feet'?"
While a third added: "Just how? Didn’t she notice it didn’t foam or did it!"
Others were quick to make fun of the woman.
One person joked: "Plot twist, she's been eating soap on toast!"
A second wrote: "The education system strives".
Even Specsavers chimed in on the digs, joking she's their "newest customer".
It might have taken her a few days, but Miley revealed she did eventually notice the cheese wasn't working like normal soap.
She said: “It was a couple days of 'Why isn’t this foaming?!'
"I come to realise it was a dried-out square of Tillamook sharp cheddar cheese."
And like many embarrassing mistakes, she suspects alcohol may have had something to do with it.
After having a few drinks one night, Miley concluded she must have gone to the fridge for a snack and left the cheese out.
"It was hard as a rock dried on the counter, gross yes I know," she said.
She added: "I suspect I left it out when I was intoxicated and just forgot."
Others questioned whether she normally keeps a block of soap by her sink to wash her dishes but she explained: "I use a liquid soap for the dishes, bar soap like this is gentler on my hands after I do chores if that makes any sense lol."
Some refused to believe it ever happened but Miley proudly owned up to the incident, writing: "can assure you I tried to use this cheese as soap."
But others were more concerned about the wasted food.
"What a horrifying waste of cheese. Cheese is f***ing expensive these days, this is a travesty," one person wrote.
