You know when kids have finished brushing their teeth they put the brush under the tap and then suck all the water from it? Probably not, but when I was younger I thought that you could only do that 5 times if you were 5, 6 times if you were 6, and so on, if you did any more your toothbrush would be taken away from you. Obviously.

When I was young and I was having a bath, my Dad would tell me to shut the door so a draft didn't come in, but because of his accent I thought he said a giraffe. I was always waiting for a giraffe to come in the bathroom.

I used to never be able go to the bathroom unless the shower curtain was wide open. I thought that people could use the shower drain as a portal to my bathroom, and that they might be trying to spy on me. Now that I think about it, it was really quite sad, and I still have to pee with the curtain open (even though I'm 14 now), but from looking at this site, it appears to be a common childhood fear.

I used to believe that if a shampoo said it was for 'greasy hair' then it would give you greasy hair. I thought this was what you needed to use if you had dry hair - to make it better

When I was little I had an inexplicable fear of the loofah (which I called a yupby) in the bathroom and my cousins would chase me round the house with it making ghost noises...whoooooooo! As if that wasn't enough my mum used to tell me that if I wasn't good the yupby would come alive at night and get me

When I was about seven years old my sister told me that I shouldn't put soap on my skin without wetting it first. She said that she knew a girl who did this and she ended up having to wear summer clothes in the winter and winter clothes in the summer!

Like some children, I used to believe that I would get sucked down the drain in the tub. Do you want to know why I thought that? My sisters, who are 10 and 12 years older than me, hid in closets and used to yell "Help me! Help me! I slipped down the drain!" There I was, running to every drain in every sink and tub in our house, crying "I'll save you! I'll save you!" I should send them the bill for all the therapy I've received over the years!

When I was pretty young I caught a part of one of the Jaws movies on tv. I guess I thought that sharks could live in water anywhere because I was afraid to use the bathroom or take a bath. It took me quite a while to get over that one.

When I was like four of five, I used to beleive that if I stayed in the bath long enough, I would turn into a elephant. It is because you get all wrinkly. To get me out of the bath, my mom would always say "oh, I see a trunk!" and I would jump out crying

I was convinced that the water from the hot tap (the cold was fine) was highly poisonous, and that if you drank it you'd die. And I sort of still do!

I thought that if I put my hand on the drain while the bathtub was draining my fingers would get stuck in there. I assumed that to get me loose, firemen would have to come to my house and chop off my hand. I'm not quite sure why I thought firemmen.

When I was a young girl of about the age of 4-5, I was told by my grandparents that if you wore a bathing suit into the bath tub while washing, potatoes would grow out of your ears and clog them up so you couldn't hear.

I don't know where in this world they got that idea from, but it was a good white lie to keep me from "swimming" in the bath tub.

When I was little, I used to believe that burglars and classmate were outside my bathroom window staring at me when I took a shower or went to the bathroom and i always got scared so I tried to cover up myself as much as possible!

I used to think that when the water went down the drain it filled a tank and eventually the tank would be full and the bath would fill with dirty water and overflow.

I panicked one day when they must have changed the plumbing or something, becuase no longer was the drain empty, from then on there was always a water level (like the toilet) and i thought "its finally happened, the bath is full"

when i was younger my mum used to tell me that i shouldnt drink the water from the taps in the bathrooms because it was 'spiders water'. She explained that a little group of spiders had a factory in the sink and that they processed the water so if i drank any of it i would get ill. i used to be terrified of brushing my teeth with the water! :-(

I used to think that there were aliens living in the bathroom fan that would look down into the room. I think I heard a weird clicking sound one day that sparked this belief.

When I was around 5, my nanny used to tell me that the bath water we used came from "Angels peeing from the sky". I thought that was a little odd but I didn't pay any mind.

When I took my shower, I thought bad spirits could arrive through the evacuation holes. So, I would put a plastic glass on it and put my foot on it. It was very handy to take a shower with on efoot on a plastic glass !!!

I used to believe that Dracula lived in the vent above the bathroom toilet and whenever I would turn on the fan he would jump out and suck my blood.
