Last month, we reported that the Hollywood stars Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher had admitted that they only bathe their children “when you can see dirt on them.” On Wednesday night, they took to Instagram to make fun of themselves over the controversy that ensured from their remarks.
The couple posted a video to the social media site in which they were in their bathroom and Kutcher shared his shock and horror at his wife “melting” the children with water.
“You’re putting water on the children?” he asked Kunis. “Are you trying to melt them? Are you trying to injure them with water?”
Kutcher proceeded to turn the camera away from his laughing wife and onto him as he continued to express his horror for his children’s hygiene habits.
“This is ridiculous. What’s going on?” he asked again. “We’re bathing our children.”
Kunis responded by laughing hysterically.
“That’s like the fourth time this week. Four times this week,” Kutcher exclaimed,” with Kunis agreeing by saying, “It’s too much.”
“Their body oils are gonna be destroyed,” Kutcher said. “What are you trying to do?”

Kutcher and Kunis made headlines last month after appearing on the “Armchair Expert podcast.” During their interview, cohosts Dax Shepard and Monica Padman started discussing how frequent they shower. Shepard shocked Padman by saying that people “should not be getting rid of the natural oil on your skin with a bar of soap every day” and instead only wash with water, and Kutcher and Kunis agreed with him.
“I can’t believe I am in the minority here of washing my whole body in the shower. Who taught you to not wash?” Padman asked.
“I didn’t have hot water growing up as a child, so I didn’t shower much anyway,” Kunis replied. “But when I had children, I also didn’t wash them every day. I wasn’t that parent that bathed my newborns — ever.”
Shepard then revealed that he and his wife Kristin Bell previously bathed their daughters every day as “part of a nighttime routine,” but stopped when the kids got older.
“That’s how we feel about our children,” Kunis said, with Kutcher adding, “Now, here’s the thing: If you can see the dirt on them, clean them. Otherwise, there’s no point.”
