A mum tried to share her Kmart hack for a 'relaxation station,' and we have... questions.

Now, let’s just start by saying we love a Kmart hack. And we love that there are Facebook groups designed solely for the purpose of clever parents sharing these hacks.

But… uh, we don’t think this particular hack will be taking off with other parents.

One mum shared her hack for creating a “relaxation station” for her teenage son with a Facebook group for Kmart fans.

“I love this hack! I just bought a Kmart soap dispenser and bathroom tray (shown on Kmart bedside table) to use as my teenage son’s relaxation station,” the post began.

“He likes to watch internet TV in bed and he has a chronic runny nose (tissues for days – I think it’s the air con!), and he had problems with dry skin and goes through heaps of hand cream.”

She said she put Sorbolene moisturisers in a marble soap dispenser and now he has everything he needs – complete with speaker, ceramic deer lamp and phone charger – in one handy location.


Please... stop.

The post was completed with a photo of the bedside table.


Her 'hack' quickly racked up 1000 comments before they were wisely disabled. The majority of people thought it was a set up, but others were convinced it was serious.

"As a mother of three boys I feel like I should do this in the near future too," one wrote.

"It ain't his nose on his face that's runny," said another.

Following a very important Facebook investigation, Mamamia has found that the mother was - thankfully, tbh - just joking.

On another Facebook page she confirmed that the post was "just a joke", and it was actually her husband's bedside table which she'd added tissues to to make it look suspicious.

"The rest is history," she said.

Now that is a mum-joke for the ages.
