Ring of fire! Man develops nasty rash after using Tesco toilet cleaning wipes to clean his bottom


Ring of fire! Man from South Wales develops burning rash after using Tesco TOILET CLEANING WIPES to clean his bottom after thinking they were flushable wet wipes

  • Leon Gleed, 29, confused the cleaning product with flushable wet wipes
  • The Lorry driver from Cwmbran thinks it was an easy mistake to make 
  • After getting a burnt bum Gleed had to apply Sudocrem for a whole week
  • He has called on supermarkets to label their products more clearly  

A man has been left red-faced and red-bottomed after using toilet cleaning wipes instead of loo roll and burning his bottom in the process.

Leon Gleed, 29, from Cwmbran in South Wales, suffered soreness in an intimate area after using the antibacterial wipes from Tesco – which were actually a toilet cleaner.

After having to put Sudocrem on his bottom for a week, the lorry driver said the sensation was like ‘having a hot curry the night before but ten times worse’.

Gleed said he didn’t realise the wipes were actually meant to be used to clean the toilet, not his backside.

Referring to the famous country song ‘Ring of Fire’, Gleed joked he was having a ‘Johnny Cash moment’.

His girlfriend Sadie Williams, 29, picked up the wipes from a Tesco Express store in the town of Risca, and left them in the bathroom.

After several trips to the toilet, Leon developed a nasty rash and some irritation.

He checked the packaging of the wipes and confessed to Sadie – who he said burst out laughing.

A few days and multiple trips to the toilet later, Leon had developed a nasty rash.

He checked the packaging of the wipes and confessed to Sadie – who he said burst out laughing.

Leon says although it was a silly mistake to make, he believes cleaning products should be labelled more clearly to avoid any risk of confusion.

The Active Flushable Toilet Wipes he was using say ‘Makes toilets sparkle’ – but makes no mention of sparkling bottoms.

As the use of flushable wet wipes become more common Gleed argues it’s an easy mistake to make.

Leon said: ‘I thought the product was wet wipes you use to go to the toilet with – but as it turned out, that wasn’t the case.

‘When I developed the soreness I knew something wasn’t quite right and when I checked the packaging it said “kills 99 percent of bacteria”.

‘Sadie said to me, “how can you be so stupid”, but I think cleaning products should have warning labels on them so they’re more identifiable.

‘I’ve come through the worst of it now – I had to use Sudocrem down there for a week!

‘Being a lorry driver it was hard to get in and out of the truck for a while because of the constant chafing and burning pain.

‘The only way I can describe it is like the night after a hot curry but ten times worse!

‘I know it was a silly mistake to make but I’m convinced there’s other people out there who have done the same!’

A spokesperson for Tesco, said: ‘We were sorry to hear about this. We make the labelling on our packaging as clear as possible for customers.’
