    Default What to do with open box of disposable nursing pads?

    Let's see how many uses we can come up with for an opened box of nursing pads. DD2 is now weaned off but I don't want to toss them away.

    Here are some uses so far:
    - to use with nail polish remover because I ran out of cotton balls
    - to use as a wedge for a wobbly table.

    Anyone else?

    Depending on the brand/thickness I think they'd make awfully nice coasters...

    LMAO!!! My sister - if you know her in real life, do not repeat this story, was over babysitting one night, and was looking for a menstrual pad. LOL. She said to me, where do you find round pads, I've never seen this brand.

    They also would be handy in the garage if you have a old leaky beast... toss a few down to catch your oil leaks, power steering fluid, etc...

    DH suggests tossing them in your shoes on a wet rainy day. I know he mentioned that his football team used to use maxi pads in highschool (in cleats).
