This is the Mythbusters episode where they polish a turd.

I actually did that once, by accident. I have an older relative who has limited control of his lower body, and his undergarments sometimes contain amazing things.

One day I put some of his underwear on to wash, and when I took them out, there was a turd in there, and it was…clean. No, really. The washing machine cleaned the poop. I was struck by incipient awe. I realised I was seeing a once in a lifetime thing.

What did it look like? Well, it was sort of glossy and shiny. It wasn’t uniform in shape like the Mythbusters’ turds, but it was smooth and rounded. It had an odour but not an offensive odour, it smelled a bit like clay.

I didn’t bag it or anything, I threw it away. But still, I had cleaned poop. Wild.
