Hello All,
 
I know the expense of pads can add up over time,  but there is a way to save on them...   maybe during the time at home watching TV...  or sleeping at night if that is an issue...  I got the idea from a women that saving on the cost of diapers...
 
View in your mind...   a picture of a penis poked thru a little hole near the top of a paper cup...
(original picture removed)
 
Enjoy your Sunday...   Take care and God Bless,

Great idea! At $0.16 per pad you save $58.40 per year. And you have the added advantage of being able to pour the "test fluid" into your wife's Pyrex graduated measuring cups for accurate leakage readings.

Of course the savings might be offset by divorce attorney fees.

Somehow I just new Jeff couldn't leave this one alone.

I think I would use a reusable plastic cup with a lid. Even more savings, and if I inadvertently rolled over, wouldn't have to change the bed.

And to think, some would see that picture as "child ****". Not sure I would spread the picture around the web.

David...
 
Had not thought of that...   will photoshop it a little...  Thanks...    :-)
 
After I had my catheter removed,   when I was sitting... and reading or watching tv,  I would just put a cup under my penis...   Never thought about putting the hole in the cup...   would have been a little more comfortable!   lol

pass,

i wasnt being critical of your post or the novel idea to save on pads, or in this case, disposable diapers. in some areas, i am afraid that a picture of an infant fully exposed in that area could be considered child exploitation or p**n. no offense intended.

I try to save every penny so I take the wet ones and lay them out under the Florida sun then reuse them. I sprinkle them with oregano.

Actually,   as I do not really use pads anymore,  and if I will be doing some climbing and lifting around the garage or working around the yard,   I will just stuff a paper towel in my shorts for the time when I forget to use the kegals...  :-)

Guys,

I squeeze BTU's out of my used pads by tossing them into my wood burning stove. 20 pounds of dry pee pad material (cellulose, hemi-cellulose and lignin) has the same heating value as ~1.5 gallons of heating oil.

I burn paper towels and used tissues too.

I see a nation wide recycling project coming to mind!!!   Maybe use the burning energy to produce power?  Pee Pads For Power...   PPFP...  Wonder if we can get some stimulus package money if any is left?   :-)
 
Actuall a very good use of the pads...   better than filling the landfills!

Burn them in a firebox hooked to a Stirling engine and you can generate electricity.

Could this be the replacement for nuclear power?

Worried Jeff: wouldn't burning the pee pads be toxic, if you really do that?

David,
Only for the people downwind. ;-)

(By the way, before my sling, I really did burn them in my Lopi Freedom wood-burning stove along with the paper trash. It is a high temp, high efficiency, reburner type stove. )

I have also found that you can nail your old pee pads to the fence posts around your propery. That will mark it as your territory and keep most of the roaming dogs and other similar critters from crossing thru your property... :-)

What a great idea! We can thread them on loops of wire and hook them on the corn plants to keep the deer away.

Just need a catchy product name: "Pee Away", "Critter Flitter", "Deer Clear"...

No need to worry about the uncertainty of Social Security; your retirement income is now secure. "Urine the money!"
