Cottonelle Ambassador: The Good, The Bad, and The Dirty #LetsTalkBums

We all have to do it and not many of us like to talk about it; well, with the exception of my little boys. Potty talk is all my boys can seem to talk about some days. The need for going to the bathroom and what one does in there has often been my boys’ favorite topic to discuss. As one of the newest Moms for Cottonelle Ambassadors, I have been charged with the task of breaking down those barriers and getting everyone to “Talk It Out” when it comes to bum chat.

I won’t be doing it alone though! Cherry Healey, with her cute British accent and “bum” talk, has created a series of videos to ease us into talking about the good, the bad, and the dirty.

Before Cherry crosses the pond to see how we Americans are treating our bums, I want to hear what your current routine is in the comments below. Do you use dry paper only? Flushable wipes only? Or do you alternate the two? As part of the Cottonelle Care Routine, it is recommended to use dry, wet, and dry again. Once you try it, it will be difficult to go back because this IS the way to treat your bum nicely! Nothing leaves you feeling cleaner and fresher than this routine, and I can attest to that.

As a mom (or should I say mum?) of 4, I have wiped a many-a-bums and when I have done the wiping I couldn’t bare the thought of having to use paper only. That is not my idea of fun. I want to get it all off quickly and cleanly. Yet as adults, we don’t offer ourselves the same courtesy as we do our children? I think it happens to be true for most of us, but I think that is starting to change. Luckily with Cottonelle flushable wipes we don’t have to worry about any clogged drains, as they are completely safe for the septic system. They break apart after they are flushed and no damage is done. Talk about a good way to get rid of the dirty!

Alright, let’s talk it out and share your routines with the group. No judging here – just enlightening. 😉 You can also join the chat on Twitter with the #LetsTalkBums hashtag.

  • I’ve always been a dry, wet, dry user! I admit it freely. Going with dry, then wet just doesn’t do the trick. There needs to be a little blotting after using a flushable wet wipe. I even carry wet wipes with me when I travel.

  • I use any number of combinations based on what I have on hand. I like the flushable wipes but I’m not going to go broke getting them, so when I get them cheap then I get them, and then it’s wet dry. I don’t want to waste.

  • I prefer to do the whole dry, wet, dry routine but finances don’t currently allow for that. Dry it is, for now! Good thing we don’t sit in our ‘dirty’ as babies do, eh? 😉

  • I’ve always just used dry paper. It does seem wasteful to go dry-wet-dry. Who knows, maybe one day I’ll change my mind.
