I could only find the wee wipes thread under womens hygiene thread.
Here’s an article in the Sydney morning herald paper about the cheap toilet paper we buy in Australia…often from the endangered forests which are home to orangutans.
Hmmm, another reason to give up toilet paper and get out my home-made wee wipes!
So even when we think we have reduced our reliance on Chinese/Indonesian etc. products with dubious origins , toilet paper is something to challenge us (numerous times a day).February 7, 2010 at 3:20 am #452764
I miss my wipes when I am at work 🙁February 7, 2010 at 3:58 am #452765
how do you makw your wee wipes?February 7, 2010 at 5:06 am #452766
Mine are flannelette pj’s from the opshop. If you keep checking you’ll come across near-new thick ones. I cut them up and sewed double thickness squares.February 7, 2010 at 5:14 am #452767
so its a use once and wash type thing?February 7, 2010 at 5:46 am #452768
Yep, use once and place in a lidded bucket until the next load of washing.February 7, 2010 at 5:49 am #452769
I must admit when I read this thread I thought ‘wee’ referred to it being small 🙂
Still be good to cut out toilet paper completely- but I think the leaves out in the bush where I’m going might be a bit sharp 😉February 7, 2010 at 6:17 am #452770
😆 @ Swaggie. I’ve been using wee wipes for a while now and I reckon they are the best thing out.February 7, 2010 at 6:24 am #452771
does anyone use poo wipes?February 7, 2010 at 6:25 am #452772
me too, although no-one else in my family is game!February 7, 2010 at 6:47 am #452773
does anyone use poo wipes?
😆 I was wondering whether this question may come up. Wee wipes are easy and no work but poo wipes would require alot more thought.
Although I saw a fancy toilet addition like a portable bidet that flushes water, at the shopping mall recently…they seemed to be quite popular and would be alternative to toilet paper – if I had to choose, I think I would choose the water/wash method rather than wipes for no. 2.February 7, 2010 at 6:52 am #452774
so, just out of curiosity, how many wee wipes would you make? to sustain you for a weeks worth of swiping??? Just very curious! :confused:February 7, 2010 at 10:38 am #452775
well in all honesty, you would only need a nappy bucket and nappy soaker and use flanny washers wet slightly with water for the poo ( so its not dry and scrapy and it cleans better and no smell (on u )).
I have done this for my kids when they have had accident and made a mess (poo) when they have eaten the wrong foods( goes thru em like a dose of preverbial salts:uhoh:) ,just grabbed a flanny washer n started wiping.
You could buy el cheapo towels and cut em up into squares n overlock the edge to stop fraying too..February 7, 2010 at 10:41 am #452776
My sister is living in Brazil the only thing she doesnt like is when you wipe for no 1 or 2 you put it in a container which emptied once a week because sewerage system is kaput where she is.:rip:February 7, 2010 at 10:57 am #452777

I got a double bed flannel sheet and cut it up into squares about the size of tissues. I think there are about 64 of them and I don’t go thru the lot in a week.
Due to “flow” issues I don’t use them during my period.
