Man attacks stain in trousers ... destroys apartment
MOSCOW (Reuters) - A Russian man may wish he had stuck with
having dirty trousers after an imaginative attempt to purge a
stubborn paint stain on them destroyed his apartment.
The unnamed Muscovite added a liter of petrol to his
washing machine to help dissolve the stain, Itar-Tass news
agency reported Monday, but the ensuing explosion wrecked his
kitchen and demolished two internal walls.
Moscow police confirmed there had been an explosion in a
south-eastern Moscow apartment, but would not comment on the
cause.
