35 Poorly Designed Items That Look Like They Are Dirty, But Aren't

For some reasons that we can't get, some designers create products that intentionally look dirty. And we have compiled a mega list of 35 pictures of poorly designed items, from the dirty BIO folk that looks like it's moldy to the backpack that looks like having bird poop on it. Instead of designing products that are useful and attractive for customers, these designers created questionable and crappy items that make us question, "What was going on in their minds?"
These poorly-designed items are from the r/CrappyDesign subreddit. And this online group is for people from all over the world to share the dirty-looking items they have in their houses or have spotted in restaurants or supermarkets. Now, take a minute to scroll down to check them out. If you have any weird and dirty-looking products, please share them with us in the comments.
