on the lighter side Ideas for extra pads etc after hyster

I was sitting in the waiting room this morning for my pre-op and it hit me .. a few more days and I will not need any more pads, tampons and large granny underware so I came up with an ingenious list of ideas of what to do with all the leftovers and just had to share!!

Pads....
1- use as band aids for large cuts
2- wrap around a can of pop as a can 'koolie' to help keep drinks
cold and soak up all the moisture cold pop attracts
3- use as a coaster
4- if your table wobbles - stick one under the short leg to shore
it up
5- put down center of car to use as racing stripes
6- attach sticky side to bottom of feet to use to mop and wax
floors
7- Use to wash, dry and wax car
8- Use as a sponge to soak up liquid spills on carpet (works
better than bounty!)

Tampons...
1- use as toe seperators whe puttin on nail polish
2- use to clean the insides of vases you cannot reach into
3- use to clean between mini blinds
4- use to clean in all the small crevices on a motorcycle where
your fingers usually get pinched
5- take a marker and add eyes and a nose to use them as cat
toys (tails already attached )
6- Use as christmas ornimates
7- Use as earplugs
8- Put one up your nose to stop nose bleeds
9- Use as a drain plug or to plug holes in a boat!!

Large granny underware...
1- Use as a new sail on a sail boat
2- use as a surrender flag when putting on a reinactment

Hope you all enjoy my humor-
Had husband rolling on the floor before talking to Dr this morning.

Thanks to all who have helped me keep my sanity!

Great post!! I still see some of mine under bathroom sink at work. Stick my tongue out at them when I get out a new roll of toilet paper. I put them there for others here at work to use.

I loved your post TamEcat ... thanks for the laugh

Someone sent me an email joke last year "how to make slippers out of pads". It was hilarious! You have the 'no slip grippers' on the bottom, and the pad is absorbant enough to deal with stubborn foot odor. I can't remember exactly how it went, but you get the idea. Wish I could find it, as I would have sent it to you.

Anyway, thanks for the laugh! Good luck on Wednesday ... I'm sure everything will go fine.

Thanks for the great idea of using leftover tampons for cat toys! We have too many cats right now, and the kittens are tearing things up. What a wonderfully inexpensive way to amuse them! Now all I have to do if find a sharpie!

Thanks TamECat!

That was great! Am rolling on the floor I really needed the laugh, going to the castle in two days! I just got my "friend" and have used up all tampons, still have some "maxis" left though. You should be a comedian!

I have one more addition to this list for uses for tampons:
Donate the box to your local police department!

My husband used to be an armed guard and he was told to carry a tampon in his jacket in case he got shot! If he was shot apparently a tampon was the right size for a bullet hole and would help absorb the blood.

TAMECAT,

I thought your post was very funny. What would we do with out our humour. Since I am 1 week post op I can tell you will still need the pads :cry:. You will still have some bleeding and discharge so dont be too quick to use them as a can Koolie yet Please add this to your list of old tampoon use #10 use as hair curlers before bed absorbs extra water and soft to lay on.Good luck to you!
Love and prayers
Pat

I have to say I loved the motorcycle one...Too bad i dont have tampons....

I was wondering now that I am on the other side if I could stick two pads on my feet, ACCIDENTALLY spill some water on the floor and get away with NOT mopping the floor, if you get my drift!! Wonder if the pillow police will come and bust me.....

Hugs and thanks for the list. VERY handy...
Kat
