WEST BROM striker Daryl Dike has accidentally been using DISHWASHER TABLETS to wash his clothes for the past eight months.
The American striker, 22, has been in England for almost a year, first at Barnsley on loan before joining the Baggies.
And the powerful prospect has confessed to scoring an own goal, after only just finding out his error.
The USA international explained the mistake on his TikTok channel.
Dike showed off the ‘Finish Powerball Quantum’ dishwasher tablets he has been using all this time.
The ex-Orlando City star said: “So funny story time and before I continue, yes, I know I’m an idiot. I fully understand that.

"I come back to my apartment and I look down at the bag [of dishwasher tabs] I have.
"This is what I’ve been using! I have been washing my clothes with dishwasher soap since I’ve been here. I have lived in England for eight months!"

As a youngster in Oklahoma, he started supporting Chelsea because of Didier Drogba and standing at 6ft 1in tall with a powerful physique he has striking similarities with his childhood idol.
