A 26-year old pregnant woman in Britain has developed an unusual craving after admitting that she cannot stop herself from eating furniture polish.
Emma Veness said that she has struggled to control the craving and said that she has so far managed to eat off at least three cans of furniture polish. The Birmingham resident added that she has now opted for medical help to control the craving since she fears that she will not be able to shake off the habit even after delivering the baby.
AdvertisementEmma said that she has always been attracted to unusual items even in her childhood, when she started to like eating the bubbles in her bath, a practice that she continues to this day. She revealed that the craving for furniture polish arose a few weeks into the pregnancy and now she cannot stop herself from eating it at least three times a day.
She added that her partner is not too happy with her habit. "I'd be polishing the TV and turn my back to him to have a taste. When he found out he wasn't happy", she said.
