Jeff, you remind me of a friend who, when he was told he'd need a colostomy, looked up with a smile on his face and said to the doctor, "How great is that! Everyday I'll have a little bag to mail to people I don't like."
Now, as for those little white bags, I've been saving mine and stuffing pillows which I'd planned to sell at the church craft sale come Christmas. Never thought about
the possibilities of sun dried pads. Hmmmmm?
And, speaking of Al Gore, it's a wonder he doesn't want us to sun dry and reuse them. But, perhaps he does and I've just not heard yet.
Keep running those tests, Jeff. First thing you know NASA will be launching on used Depends.
