  • I would probably have used toilet paper. I never thought to use a diaper! Does it work?! LOL, I try to stock up so that won't happen but of course it occasionally does!

  • You can use Toilet paper just kinda roll it into a pad shape and that will work for a bit. You have to use alot of TP though. Cutting a diaper might work too I have never tried that one

  • ok, for the record I did try it, yes it did work. I decided to give it a try after I ruined two pairs of undies because wasn't absorbent enough apparently. lol.

    I forgot about the diva cup idea! or even using cloth is a great idea!
