Rosie Skinner, 19, admits to consuming a minimum of two large sponges a week after cutting them into small pieces and sucking on them throughout the day but admits she’s desperate to quit the bizarre habit.
She said: “If I have a stressful day I love to treat myself to snack on a sponge to relax.”
However, her unusual taste for the cleaning objects has landed her in hospital and resulted in her being slightly anti-social.
Rosie told the Daily Mail newspaper: “I would like to quit, but I still haven’t grown out of the habit yet … I’m not very confident doing it around people – I know it’s weird.
“My family and my boyfriend Callum think I’m mad, but I don’t mind, it’s just part of who I am.”
