Despite a proud effort - he's definitely not in the good books after this.
It can be hard to keep things spick and span around the house, so when one husband thought he was doing his wife a massive favour by doing the dishes he couldn't be prouder to tell her.
However, it appears he may have taken "cleaning" to a whole new level.
Taking to Facebook group Mrs Hinch Cleaning Tips, the woman shared a before and after pic of her non-stick pan.
"One to make you all laugh... she began her post.
"Husband waiting all excited to show me how clean he got my pan: 'Look! I got it back to silver!'"
Sounds promising doesn't it? Well unfortunately not.
"No my darling you have ruined it and took all the non stick coating off," she said.
Too funny! But if you think the comical exchange between the partners ended there, think again.
Shortly after posting to the group, she woman shared an update.
"Wow the response is hilarious! Quick update... He tried to prove to me that it could still be used... [Can] safely say he burnt the egg."
Within 18 hours, the post received more than 8000 likes and hundreds of comments.
The update prompted even more responses from fellow group members who couldn't contain their laughter.
"Awww bless him..he thought he was doing you a good turn ....bet you chuckled to yourself just a little," one said.
"Sorry but this made me laugh so much!" another added.
Some members of the group even took it upon themselves to share their own hilarious tales.
"My daughter done this to my very expensive brand new pan. She was so pleased to think she cleaned it. I could have cried, she was only thirteen at the time. She's in her fifties now .We still laugh about it when we meet," one shared.
"Aww bless him! When I was a lot younger I thought I’d surprise my ex-hubby and cleaned his car, I used the rough side of one of them scourer sponges and gave it a good clean, looked nice till it dried and there was scuff marks everywhere lol."
Oh Lord! Can you imagine?
