When I was younger I was scared to go to the bathroom because I believed that a wolf lived inside my mother's hamper and that if he heard me walk by, he would sprint towards me and eat me. To this day, unfortunately, I'm still deathly afraid of wolves.

My brother made me believe for years that our bathroom was a space ship. We used to close the door and we traveled all arround the universe, he even scared me some times saying that he had problems to come back home...until one day when my mom suddendly opened the door and i saw the floor outside instead of Mars....

I used to think that the curved pipe under the sink led directly back up to the faucet, so I wouldn't use water to brush my teeth.

My daughter-in-law believed that you couldn't take a bath or shower if the electricity was out.
It turned out that she grew up in a house that had well water and an electric pump that got the water into the house. So if there was a power outage, of course there was no water.
But even after she married my son, she still believed this. He had to explain that not every home uses well water, so showering was still an option even during a power outage.

My brothers and I always loved baths. One time my dad was trying to get him out of the bath water that was, by this time freezing cold. My dad started to drain the water and near the end the drain made a loud, sucking noise. Horrified my brother asked, "Dad what's that?!" My dad responded with outreached arms, "I DON'T KNOW!! HURRY UP GET OUT!!!!"

The tub moster was a chilhood fear of my brother for years.

This is not a toilet beleif, but similar. I used to refuse to let the bathwater out of the tub because I was conviced that the drain was a tube that ran straight down and ended in a room and the water poured out on a lion's head and woke him up. I thought one day he would stop roaring at me and just break through the bottom of the tub and eat me.

I thought the gurle of the drain in the bathtub was a lion roaring. I assumed there was a lion in the basement that drank my bath water, and when the last of the water went down the drain, he roared.

For the first 18 years of my life, I thought it was odd that the one thing it was illegal for me to sell or trade was my bathroom weigh scale. What kind of controlled device was it that it couldn't be sold to someone else or traded for something else?

And yet, every one I've ever seen had that label clearly displayed: "Not for Sale or Trade".

It wasn't until I mentioned it out loud that a friend pointed out (amid laughter) that the scale could not be used to *weigh* things for the purpose of pricing them.

When I was 4 and sitting in a hot tub, I thought my mom was cooking me for dinner. (I guess I watched one too many Bugs Bunny cartoons)

When I stayed over at my grandparents' house and they gave me a bath, they said that if you stayed too long in the bath you would become scrunched and small like a raisin and fall down the drain. It seemed reasonable because if you stay in water too long, your fingers do start to look raisin-like.

I used to believe that a werewolf lived down the plughole of the bath! When I used to go to the toilet- I had to peer down the plughole to check it wasn't going to come up and bite me while I relieved myself. It was ok whilst using the bathtub though, as the plug blocked the werewolf down so it couldn't eat me

When I was little, I believed that any water that went down the drain without any soap in it, was recycled and came back through the faucet.

I was afraid that Jaws would come out of the drain, so I would hop away when I pulled the plug.

When I was really dirty and the bath water got dark, I thought that there were little sharks and eels in the bathtub... so I would avoid putting my hands down in the tub.

My sister told me that jellyfish came out of the shower and sting you to death.

My dad used to tease me and say that if you took the plug out of the bath tub while you were still in it, that you would get sucked in with the water.
I can't remember the number of times he had me in frantic tears trying to pull him outa the bath when he pulled the plug out in order to wind me up! Fun now maybe, but back then I thought he'd be sucked up and eaten!!! Very traumatising if you think of it!

As a child, my mum used to give me a bath before bedtime, and I would try to stay in there as long as possible, even after mum had pulled the plug out and the water had started to drain away, all so that I could stay up that little bit later. Well, mum decided that to get me out of the bath quicker, it would be a good idea to tell me that once the plug had been pulled out of the bath, crocodiles would escape out of the plughole and eat me up if I was still in the bath! To this day, I cannot stay in a bath once the plug has been pulled out! (Not that I believe her anymore, but I think psychologically the fear of the plughole has stayed with me!!).
