Hot on Taobao is a monthly segment where we feature a product from Taobao our editors think is cool.

Bathtubs are not a common sighting in homes around China. At least they weren’t until now...

Picture this: you get home after a long day of work and your bones are aching from this chilling winter weather. What could remedy such a feeling? An adult-sized foldable bathtub, of course.

Comprised of three layers of waterproof material and held up by six PVC pipes, this collapsible bathtub has all the makings of a 2am drunken Taobao purchase. (“But Karen, you don’t understand. I need this,” you assure your roommate slash girlfriend slash financial adviser).

The tub is fashioned to fit neatly inside your shower and comes with a nifty draining nozzle needed for the 80-150 liters of water to fill up the bath. The oversized water hampers are advertised as being suitable for anyone under 185 centimeters and 86 kilograms.

With over 20,000 purchases just for this particular brand’s shower tub alone, China-based consumers are taking an interest in this hot product. One satisfied customer wrote a review of the tub, saying, “The quality is great and very sturdy. It’s been a long time since I’ve experienced this kind of feeling. I’ve already recommended it to many of my friends.” Another happy client provided this glowing review, writing, “It really is very comfortable. I feel most women have a dream of owning a bathtub. This really solves the problem of wanting a bathtub but not having enough money. It’s great.”

In case you are sold on this ingenious tub, prices generally range from RMB316-458. We would say supplies are limited, but apparently there are over 693,000 in stock (as of 6pm on December 11).
