Wonder Wipes: Instant Washcloths
Instant washcloths can be an indispensable tool for IBD patients, or anyone with digestive distress. There have many other uses as well. The basic concept is a small disposable towel, hyper-compressed into a little pill shape which pops to life with a few drops of water.
The Lightload Towel is different than the others. Their compressed towel is fully biodegradable and individually wrapped in plastic so you can carry single units and keep them safely clean and dry until you’re ready to use them. Their compressed size is larger than the others (about the size of three stacked poker chips), and the towel itself is larger too, at 12 inches square. They also offer a double size 12x24 inch version, plus a super-size model that starts the size of a hockey puck and turns into a 36x60 beach towel. They call it "The Worlds Only Towel That Is A Survival Tool." Shop Amazon for Lightload Towel or visit their web site at www.ultralighttowels.com.
One critical thing to keep in mind… despite the fact that these compressed towels look a lot like antacid tablets or calcium pills, do not eat them (unless you want to end up in the hospital like this poor dog).
