Didn’t stock up during the run on toilet paper? Here are a few ideas to get you through the Apoopcalypse!
- Paper towels
- Baby wipes
- Wet Wash cloths
- Squirt bottle of water
- Fancy squirt “bidet’ bottles from Amazon (h/t to Free Outside blogger)
- Cut up old flannel sheets or shirts to make reusable cloths
- Wait to poop until after they restock the toilet paper. (Hmm, might be a run on laxatives, better stock up!)
Be sure to wash the reusable cloths in bleach, if you have some….
To be quite honest, we have used “reusable” wipes before, it’s no big deal for us to do it again! While we did pick up one extra package of toilet paper, we weren’t going to go overboard. We have cloth wipes, they can be washed and reused! I understand picking up one or even two extra packages just to stay out of the store, but it’s a little overboard in places. Don’t panic, pray! God will always provide for us, no matter what life brings. God Bless and stay healthy!
It’s a really strange reaction to the virus! Take care!
I went to HEB when it opened this morning. Had to wait in line to get in. I really needed some perishables and produce. There was plenty on the shelves and I even got some TP. They were monitoring it to keep people from buying it all out. I just got a 12 pack as I am not a hoarder.
There is no shortage. Just the typical Facebook stupidity amplifier in full swing. I guess in a week when all the hoarders are living off of the their deep supply of TP, we normal folks can go the store and get our normal amount.
HEB is doing it right. But it’s crazy that this happened at all. I’m ready for things to be normal again.
