WOMAN WITH 100 YEAR OLD MATTRESS AND BEDDINGS THAT HAVE NEVER BEEN WASHED
Written by Lola Narawa on March 24, 2023
Imagine not cleaning your beddings for an entire month.
Yes i know absolutely gross well youre going to love this story.
Cornelia Bayley, who lives in a Grade I listed 17th century manor in north Wales, appeared on the Channel 4 show Obsessive Compulsive Cleaners back in 2013.
Then aged 74, the retired antiques dealer was struggling to maintain the 10-bedroom mansion by herself, and enlisted the help of cleaning obsessives Hayley and Dann.
They admitted it was their “greatest challenge yet,” as the house was full of dirt and grime, with Cornelia saying she had only covered a couple of times in 29 years.
But one of her most eye-opening confessions was that she had never washed her bedding or mattress – which is believed to be 100 years old.
One of the things Cornelia was clear on when Dan and Hayley visited was that they weren’t allowed to use any cleaning products – only water and a sponge.
When Cornelia said this, Hayley asked: “It doesn’t kill the bacteria then, does it?” to which the homeowner replied: “The bacteria can live here, I couldn’t care less.”
I would be absolutely horrified if I lived with someone like this.
