Mum's genius cleaning challenge for the rest of her family hilariously backfires

A mum has gone viral online after her genius cleaning hack hilariously backfired on her.

The mum planted a piece of rubbish on the ground with $5 stuck onto the back of it - in hopes someone would pick it up.

Unfortunately the rubbish stayed on the ground a lot longer than she expected!

"Well, while trying to prove a point to my kids, we’ve just surpassed the 48 hour mark of the 'who will pick up the random piece of trash that they KNOW isn’t supposed to be there' challenge." the mum wrote on her Facebook page.

"Between the kids AND the husband, and MULTIPLE trips in and out of the bathroom, this little piece of heaven may just be in it for the long haul!"

Speaking to CafeMom the woman said "I truly thought I had made it obvious by putting the paper in the middle of the bathroom floor."

"I knew this was a high-traffic area so I figured one of them would stumble upon it in the morning."

"An entire day went by and… nothing! I figured it must be a fluke, so I waited patiently the following day thinking one of them would notice it. Still no."

Even though it didn't work out, we still think it's a genius idea.
