Bathrooms are comparable to Vegas because ‘What happens in the bathroom, stays in the bathroom.’  No one ever likes to talk about what goes on behind the bathroom’s closed doors, especially when it involves the bum.  Let’s face it, conversations surrounding that particular area of the body are downright embarrassing, unless, of course, you’re one of those people. Because what normal person talks about bum wipes?

I’m here to help make those conversations a little less uncomfortable because it’s important for everyone to walk around with confidence in knowing they have a clean bum.  I have a three year old daughter, so it’s important for her, as a female, to learn how to properly clean her bum and vagina.  Below are my tips on how I ensure both of us have clean bums, and so can you using the two-step, wet/dry combo Cottonelle cleansing system, which includes the Cottonelle Clean Care Toilet Paper and Cottonelle Fresh Care Flushable Wipes (found at Rite Aid).

Tips for a Clean Bum

1.  Wash and dry your hands prior to sitting on the royal thrown
2.  Make sure all of your “business” is complete. Really done.
3. Wipe with just a few sheets of Cottonelle Clean Care Toilet Paper  (Ladies, double wrap your hands should you need to.  I know it’s something we’re known for doing. And remember, it’s front to back.)  ***Repeat if necessary.***
4.  Now, to ensure you’ve gotten everything, and to make sure your bum is oh so fresh and clean, wipe with the Cotonelle Fresh Care Flushable Wipes.
5.  Wash and dry your hands.

You’re done!

    Well… that was an awkward conversation presented painlessly, loll. Yayyy for coupons… I love this!!! Also, I can’t believe she is 3 already.

    • LOL thank you! Yes, the wet wipes are the best thing, and the coupons make them even better. Please don’t remind me. She’ll be 4 soon. I’m planning on taking her to Disney.

    Oh my goodness, I love a good TP. I cannot handle the cheap stuff. And those wipes are heaven

    • Yes, the cheap stuff. Let’s not even talk about it; it doesn’t deserve any mention.

  • A clean bum… Something NOT to be taken for granted, especially by parents! Any tips are useful 🙂

  • LOL David likes TJ’s TP I think because it’s cheap. But, I’m with your mom, I can’t skimp on something I’m using down there. I need to try that, especially for the powder room whenever we have over guests.

  • Great candid post! I use to use cheap toilet paper back in the day and my mom discovered it and got mad at me. She said that some items are worth paying for and having a good toilet paper is one of them haha she’s right. Random but a product I really like is poo pourri : ) just spray before you go. Perfect to place in your bathroom in case ya gotta know no one would know. Good for work too hehe.
