"slopping" for "sopping"

I believe this one is new to the Eggcorn Forum. There are lots of examples online. Here are a few:

The door lock light does not come on at the start of the cycle and therefore the load does not spin out leaving the clothes slopping wet with water standing in the shower.

By then, many people already had their tents down – all of the tents were slopping wet again from the dew – not much fun to pack up!
