I have finally found a use for the sample Kotex Lightdays pads that somehow made their way to my apartment via snail mail.

With a bit of trimming, they stick nicely onto the Clorox Ready Mop/mop-with-replaceable-pads thing-a-ma-bobber. =^^=v And they seem to do just as good of a job as the actual replacement pads. Plus, due to the adhesive back, they stay on better than the replacement pads.

Now to figure out if feminine products would be cheaper than buying actual replacement pads. Although the oddness of being seen shopping in That Section of assorted stores may overrule desires to save money.

(2 pads will cover the width of the mop. 3-4 might be better, so you cover the entire bottom of the mop. Checking Amazon, a replacement pads (set of 16) costs $7.99+≈$5 S/H... vs. a case of 6x105=630 Pantiliners costs $33.33+?? S/H via Amazon. Hmmm. Roommate would give me weird looks if I got a package of 630 Pantiliners in the mail though..........)

Pantiliners isn't a word?

LOL. How innovative. And I'm sure they'd just think you were shopping for someone...if it works for you and it's cheaper you should probably go for it. And as for the weird looks, just explain your new discover. (How exactly did you come up with the idea for that in the first place, anyway? Not that it's a bad idea...just not something that I would have ever thought to try.)

And I think it might be pantyliners but I'm not sure about that.

Heh. It's still somewhat awkward though. I'd be standing around, comparing prices and trying to figure out which ones were the most adhesive and sturdy...

As for how I came up with the idea... eh... ::shrugs:: I was looking at the pads and wondering what I'd do with them. After all, I don't know anyone on campus well enough to just walk up to them and offer them random Kotex pads...
