Potty training disasters are inevitable. A company called “Heaven’s Lil Blessings Boutique” has developed a product promises to exacerbate the problem. If you like kids with shitty fingers, this is for you!
“Great for little hands that can’t quit figure out how to keep their hands clean / covered when wiping.”
I know it’s bad form to nitpick grammar in casual internet posts, and this is a very small DIY business run entirely on facebook. This is the rare double-fail, so I couldn’t resist a chuckle.
This Handeco Wipes product is simply a horrible idea.
It’s made of cotton, which is not known to be ‘water’-proof.
Children with an already clumsy grasp will not improve with a damn oven mitt on.
Assuming even a week or two supply is optimal, washing this frequently is hardly ‘eco-friendly’ (power and water consumption).
Speaking of shitty fingers
It seriously reminded me of the culture shock I experienced on my first deployment. I witnessed ‘Third Country Nationals” (TCN’s) leaving the back of the dining facility with a water bottle in their hand walking over to the port-o-potties. I saw it dozens of times before it occurred to me why they did this. They don’t use toilet paper, the Islamic tradition is to use their bear hand (left) and rinse it with water. Then they go back inside and serve me breakfast. Hooah!
Later some soldier told me about the time they were ordered to stop letting the TCN’s have water bottles. It was supposed to be a security threat, like with TSA and ‘3 ounces of liquids’. The soldier told me that the insides of all of the port-o-potties were covered with “layers of shit graffiti.” This rule only lasted a single day.
Maybe the Heaven’s Lil Blessings Boutique should set up a facebook page in Arabic. Allah’s Lil Ahk-Bazaar?
I hope I don’t sound insensitive. I have no assumption that “USA is NUMBER 1 at how to poop!!!” All over the world, there are many variations on the toilet experience. I appreciate cultural diversity, but I really think this is a hygiene issue.
