Let's Talk Bums. Yep, let's talk about your bum.

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Cottonelle.

Bums and bathrooms are not a topic I love to talk about, unless we are talking toilet training and 2 year olds. (Which we have covered here on FV before. Want help with your toilet training? Check out Toilet Training Part 1 and Part 2). So the thought of chatting about bums and big people is a little, well, out of my comfort zone.


A few months ago our family was introduced to a fantastic new product that your family should know about.

SO stick with me, we are talking bottoms, bums, rumps, and backsides today on Family Volley.

Our household has been trying to save money. We are always trying to save, but we are getting more and more serious about it as our kids are getting older and their activities cost more money. One of the things I can't stand spending money on is toilet paper. Why? Because you just throw it away. Ugh! But at the same time you just can't live without it.

We attempted to save on the less expensive brands and found that our kids struggle to use toilet paper that is too thin. So it is one place where we have a few standards.

Then, I was introduced to the Cottonelle Care Routine. The routine consists of using toilet paper and a wet flushable cleansing cloth to give you clean you can really feel. Now, I know that for our kids, wet wipes by far work the best and get them the cleanest. This is not just the case with their bottoms, but wet wipes work the best for dirty faces, dirty hands, and even dirty feet. I know that cars get much cleaner when you use water with the towels and soap, and our dishes get much cleaner when I use water to wash them, not just a dish towel. And my body gets cleaner when I use water with the soap.

Makes perfect sense that it would work the same way with adult bums too? Come to find out, it does. And, on top of that, our family uses a ton less toilet paper. A ton. The flushable wipes have cut our toilet paper usage in half. Especially with the kids. (They tend to use a lot of toilet paper to get clean.)

The Cleansing Cloths are available in a sleek, newly designed, upright dispenser, which looks inconspicuous, even in our guest bathroom)

Now, I will admit, I have swiped a few wipes from our kids over the last 11 years. And when I help take girls to camp for our church, wipes are a staple for a week in the dirt, but, the kids wipes always feel so wet to me when I use them "down there". I cringe a little when I use them because of it. This was my first concern with the Cottonelle Flushable wipes also. I didn't want to be left wet. TMI. Sorry.

Imagine my excitement when I realized these weren't too wet at all. They were comfortable and easy to use, time saving and money saving. Not to mention, they really help the kids keep clean too.

I can also see them being a heaven send if you have just had a new baby. Bathroom after babies just isn't fun, no matter how you look at it.

Enough bum talk for one day. If you are looking for a way to clean up your bathroom routine, look no further. Nothing will leave you feeling cleaner and fresher than the Cottonelle Care Routine. I now know from personal experience. And I am a believer.

SO.. would you consider using a cleansing cloth?

P.S. Cherry Healey, who is gutsy enough to talk about anything, is getting people talking about how they "wipe". You have to check her out. She is a superstar to take on something so personal. Maybe if I had her accent, I would feel more confident about talking about the topic.

Cottonelle wants to get you talking about your bum and on a better way to clean “down there” by using the Cottonelle Clean Routine. By combining the use of Cottonelle Toilet Paper and Cottonelle Flushable Cleansing Cloths, the Cottonelle Clean Routine is a revolutionary way to keep your bum cleaner.

  1. The flushable wipes are not easily biodegradable. We used them for our son and that resulted in our sewer getting blocked up, costing $$$ to clean! The sewer guy said NEVER to flush the flushable wipes ever! That was the end of the wipes for us.

  2. My husband introduced me to cleaning up with wipes right after we got married, and I couldn't ever go back. It makes me wonder how I ever felt clean before?
