    It wasn't on purpose actually,

    usually I was spanked but this time I mistaken the bar of soap with a bar of chocolate and took a bite which I later regretted cx

    I've only done this to myself.

    Some things actually taste THAT bad. Actually, I can't remember why I did it, but it was something like that. Either that or I was told mid shower that someone had put my toothbrush in their butt, even though they hasn't.

    I never learned as a teenager.

    Whenever I was mouthy or said something foul, my mom would put soap on my toothbrush and make me brush my teeth. I'm sure there's still times she wishes she could do this to me now at 30.

    When I was younger I had quite the potty mouth!

    ( I still do , but I'm working on it! ) I would feel so comfortable talking to my aunt that curse words would just slip out! One day they just kept coming out that she made me wash my mouth out with bar soap. Needless to say , I stopped cursing around her.

    I don't remember why I thought it was a fantastic idea to stomp my feet and tell my father that I "didn't have to listen to his stupid rules". I do, however, remember what it felt like to have the steely grasp around my wrist dragging me to the bathroom while I sobbed my eyes out...

    So me and my friend agreed on having our mouths

    washed out due to language, and becoming better people. 7 minuetes per word or thought of curse word with bar of soap in mouth. And it sucks. Had to do 49 minutes of it. It was soapy and sudsy. Was a bar of zest. If y'all have any ideas to help I'd be glad to hear them

    Ivory soap was my mom's soap of choice.

    I got my mouth soaped for telling fibs or saying bad words. I wonder what brand soap is most used for washing out mouths?
