Things I Love Thursday- Adult Wipes July 26, 2007

I discovered them after watching yet another episode of Oprah with Dr. Oz. So without further ado, I give you Dr. Oz’s thoughts on wiping after number 2 (see how I made a little poop poem :))

If you got feces all over your hand, would you wash it off or wipe it with dry toilet paper? Exactly. You’d run over to the sink faster than a sprinter in an Olympic qualifier. Sowhy do we wipe ourselves with dry, sandpaper-like toilet paper after we go to the bathroom? It’s also not the right leaning system because it is irritating and increases the likelihood of getting hemrroids.                                                            From You: The Owner’s Manual

I could not agree more. We made a household switch to these last year and my bum has been thanking me ever sense (not literally, that would be weird). Plus after pushing out 2 kids, I need all the help I can get in the preventing hemrroids department (way too much info, I realize, but I know you fellow mommies can feel my pain-maybe literally).

I have tried all the brands, including the store brand, and I can’t tell much difference. I just buy whatever is on sale or I have a coupon for. In a pinch I have even just wet some toilet paper and used that. Just make sure that you are buying flushable wipes and not baby wipes or you will have a big mess (again, literally). So give them a try and your behind will be happier for it. Remember if your bum isn’t happy, ain’t nobody happy (or something like that…)

    Looks like we’ll be making the switch too. I’m with you on the hemrroids thing- not fun.

    I am sitting at a restraunt grabbing the one ply thinking, you know what, that Jill knows what she is talking about. Guess what I am getting tomorrow at Sam’s Club???

    I also made the switch after that show on Oprah and haven’t gone back since. The funny thing is that I already had them because my little boy was potty training and they were so much easier for me. I just never thought of using them for myself.

    Beware, I’m pretty sure these things contributed heavily to a blocked septic system in our house last year. The plumber who waded through the poo-water in our basement laundry-room suggested we give them (the wet wipes)the old heave-ho; and I have, sadly, followed his advice.
