53 Things That Were Designed To Look Dirty For No Apparent Reason

For reasons known only to them, some designers make products look dirty. And that’s usually not what you want.

Whether we’re talking about jeans covered in brown stains or a floor brush that looks to be constantly covered in dust, these things can really play tricks on you.

But at least you can pass it on—people who have witnessed such exhibits in the wild are sharing their photos on the Internet, trying to see if they’ll fool others as well.

Bored Panda collected a list of such images just for your enjoyment, so sit back, relax, and prepare to repeat “Why would someone create this?” with a judgemental chuckle for the next few minutes.
