Could anyone shed some light on a brownish powder that keeps appearing (three times now) on my parents bathroom floor-about a spoonful at a time?
Ruled out is a lack of cleanliness on their part or dropping down or off from anywhere or their talcum powder!
If it is wetted it turns into a red, jelly-like consistency.
I'm thinking it must surely be from a spider and possibly be the remains of a half eaten moth it had eaten, but the supposed spider is never seen and the powder appears within the same 10cm circumference each time.
I perhaps should have done some of my own research first, but I promised my mother I'd write here first, just in case it's a popular occurence with any of you people.
Some of it is in a jar which I'll try to put up via photo for you in the coming days. next time I'm there.
No it's a first floor bathroom and there is just a vinyl floor which is in excellent condition. There are no other tell tale marks near or around other than this fine, dark brown powder like substance; it's most odd.
Yes I did think if it were a spider there would be at least some clumps of remains.
