Carry Wipes in Your Pocketbook

Just a quick tip for the ladies. When you are out and about make sure you carry flushable wipes in your pocketbook. You never know when you'll have to "go" and the restroom will have no toilet paper. It's a life saver!

I always carry tissues in my pocketbook. And they now have the seat covers that you can stick in your purse. This is an excellent idea!

This is a great tip! Besides those "no toilet paper zone" bathrooms we all run into, having wipes in your purse a good thing even when food shopping. I stopped counting how many times I've picked up detergent or a milk carton with a leak, or have grabbed an item with gunk or residue from another package on it. Wipes would sure come in handy then, too.

I think this is a great idea, but where do you stop with how much stuff you carry around with you all the time? I have indeed encountered the toilet paper before, but now I just make sure I check the stall before I use this one or if this is the only stall, then I get some tissues or towels at the sink. If this does not work, then I go to management and tell them to bring me what I need. I carry so many first aid things now it is crazy.

I use them a lot and get mine at the 99 Cents Only store. "Pure and Gentle" blue package 80 wipes. (Not the cartoon logo packages, they are not as strong.)

I put them in a previous baby wipes box at home and carry them in my purse in a Ziploc sandwich baggie.

What's worse than no TP is when you can't find the end and then it rolls out in very thin little strips. That about ticks me off worse than no paper at all. Another tip I read online is carry a dry cloth in your purse for drying your hands. I carry a dry wash cloth. I hate the blow dryers for drying hands. I've heard they are not all that sanitary, as the heat spreads germs. I always had wet wipes in my purse.

FYI: To add to this, many towns are now making their toilets a "No Wipe Zone". The wipes do not disintegrate and have been finding them jamming the sewers. The plug the filters of the septic and municipal systems, sometimes costing thousands of $$ to maintain beyond expected cost. Raising our sewer bill on the public utilities monthly bill. Like in Sochi for the Olympics, they were told to dispose of their toilet paper into a waste basket and not flush. The city next to us said there is no wipes safe for their system. Town of 30,000 with up to date system.
