Splish, Splash Look What Happened to These Baths

Quirky / Funky

What’s more iconic in the world of baths than a claw foot tub? It evokes images of sudsy bath foam, sloshing over the edges with every soak and swipe of the loofah, water-logged feet propped up and arms hanging over the sides, the bather reclining in total relaxation. Ah, those Saturday nights.  Still, others have found a totally unique use for this whirlpool paragon, which by the way, is today’s “DiggersList Find”.
