Oh yeah, you know what these are, and if you are a professional CVS-er, you attained quite a few of them last month when they were free after ECB. Now, I know its possible to use those up because well, lets not go there, but most of us CVS-ers got way too many of them. So what now? Well, I have a few ideas, but if you are grossed out by feet, sweat and potty-training kiddies, you might wanna skip this post. I mean, it won’t be that bad, but I gotta give a disclaimer where ever needed. Some people are squeamish about the funniest things.
Use number one: sweat-stopper
This may sound silly, but this is what many Hollywood stars do when they have to go on a red carpet in the middle of the summer and even September. They take plain old pantiliners and put them in the armpits of their lovely fashion-forward digs. Nowadays, some even get botox injected into their pits but, um, I don’t think that will be on my list anytime soon. And yes, I have tried this. It works. It works well. I did it when I had to go up to the promotion board to attain my next rank and I knew that no matter what I did, I would be sweating buckets. A light blue Air Force blouse and a sweaty nervous me do not mix. Sometimes it even makes me wanna faint. But that’s another story.
Use number two: shoe inserts
Sweaty feet stink. He He….ok, lets get serious. These do help the dainty of feet with their sweating but what pantiliners are really great at when it comes to shoes are filling up that space when a shoe is just a bit too big. You may have a pair of shoes where the one shoe fits like a glove on one foot but is a bit too big on the other. Stick a pantiliner in the “bigger” shoe and you’re in business. Also, pantiliners are great when a shoe is a bit too slippery on the inside and you need a quilted insert to give a little friction. I use them on new open toe shoes to prevent my tootsies from trying to slip out of the front.
Use number three: potty training anyone?
Now this is for those toddlers that are already conductors of their very own potty train but may have times where they wait to tell mama or daddy that they have to go. They wait so long that you see them doing the “pee pee dance” and making that face that horrifies a parent who’s out without an extra change of clothes for their kiddo. Now the pantiliner won’t hold back the bursting of a Dam nearby, but it will help you get the poor little darling to the bathroom and also provide insurance that you won’t have to clean any um “stains” from those cute little underroos. Gross? yes. But just think what we ladies use them for. I rest my case.
Coming soon on stockpile double agents: mustard, ketchup, and conditioner…..any other ones I should add to the list? Anyone? Bueller? Bueller?
