Thanks to Cottonelle for sponsoring today’s discussion. All embarrassing stories are those of the reviewer.
Time to come clean about a sensitive subject: Bums. Specifically, keeping them clean and fresh. Babies use wipes, so why not everyone else? There is a lot that goes on behind that bathroom door, and some of it can be more than mere TP can handle.
Let me tell you MY “Behind the Bathroom Door” story, and to preface it, let’s be totally honest about one more thing: Skidmarks are NOT cute, whether you are 3 or 43. In fact, had Cottonelle® Flushable Cleansing Cloths and Cottonelle® Clean Care TP been around when my Ex-Husband was…Well, I won’t say that they would have saved my marriage, BUT I will say that they would have saved me a LOT of emotional distress on laundry day and the day I am about to describe.
Here is My story.
I was a newlywed in my mid-twenties and I had been out-of-town for several days. I returned to find the laundry had piled up. HIS laundry. Rather than DO said laundry, my husband decided to pick through the dirty clothes and wear something he deemed “clean enough”. (Insert sarcasm) OK. YES. That is what I would totally do. But it gets better. I know that he did this because I caught him wearing a pair of boxers inside out, and when I asked (As any wife would do) WHY those boxers were being worn inside out, the response was that they were the cleanest pair of dirty ones he could find. Ummm, what? And while I was still digesting that bit of information, he turned away. And I was forever scarred, for right there for my viewing (dis)pleasure was my man sporting skid marks! I think I screamed a little/died inside, and he did have the good sense to at least look embarrassed and take them off. I think he started a load of laundry and went commando. But I will never, ever forget that moment. Ever.
Fast forward to a new husband and a new baby and a new love for baby wipes! I started keeping them in the bathroom for when times got messy. But they could not be flushed and DH would not use them because they were “baby wipes” and he is a “grown man”. OK. Whatever. I like to treat my hiney tenderly! SO I was uber excited to find out about Cottonelle® Flushable Cleansing Cloths and Cottonelle® Clean Care TP. We already use Cottonelle® TP most of the time, so I knew it was a great product, but I had never tried the Clean Care TP or the Cleansing Cloths. The Cottonelle® Fresh Care Flushable Cleansing Cloths are alcohol-free and feature SafeFlush Technology, so they not only offer you a confident clean but also start to break down immediately after flushing. I was interested to see how the wet+dry system worked, and I ran up to the store to grab both products. I was excited by the style of the wipes box, and the wipes are very luxurious and good-sized and dispensed with one touch. However, I still had to convince DH that cleaning cloths are not just for baby bums but for adult bums as well! “Just try them!” I said. “You WILL like them!” And he did. Now he says he will never go back to just using dry TP. Another person saved from skid marks!
