Hi there everyone
I happened upon this site a few weeks ago when I was researching about disposable toilet paper. I have been in the process of "greening" up my home and my life and finally decided to try to get past the ick factor and try out family wipes. Also, I was sick and tired of being held to ransom buying toilet paper and buying feminine products which they could charge the earth for and hold us all over a barrel (yes I own a mooncup too)
I purchased a bunch of baby cloths very cheap from the supermarket and also some face cloths for those 'heavier" times of the month.
I have to tell you, I'm a convert...absolutely LOVE it! The tiny bit of xtra work involved (which is really nothing...I simply use, rinse under the tap and throw in the bucket of stain solution beside the toilet...washing day comes and the entire bucket is tipped into the washing machine and thats it) is totally worth the comfort and hygiene benefits gained from using these wipes.
I also decided to go the whole 9 yards and use them for ALL motions, 1's and 2's. I have to say, the first couple of days were a bit like...go for 2's...comes time to wipe and I was cringing a little bit but you get used to it eventually and now its second nature for me. I have to convince hubby of course hahaha, he thinks I'm weird and is very dubious about the whole thing. Mind you, I was the guilty party for using screads of toilet paper ESP around the dreaded moon time. The paper seems to last forever with only him using it.
I havent had a period yet while using the wipes...I guess thats gonna feel alot better too
Ok, enough of my rant...I just had to come register and tell you guys.
PS. I just treated myself to 10 velour cloths to give my butt the royal treatment teehehehehe
