Girls: Let's Talk Bums

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Cottonelle.

Put a couple of moms together with a bottle of wine, some delicious nibbles and a mandate to wear your PJs for one much-needed night of relaxation… there’s no telling what might come up in the conversation.

Tonight’s choice topic?

Let's talk bums. 

Yep, we went there. Just like Salt n Pepa (I'm a child of the 80s), we decided to "talk about all the good things and the bad things..." that make up this delightful subject. And once we threw out it out there on the table, it was great to really share what works and what doesn’t especially since many of us don’t even share our bathroom routine with our spouses.

So what was said on this very taboo topic that shouldn’t be since it’s a completely natural and necessary part of life, right? Inquiring minds want to know, right?

First up, people: have you ever even thought about how you handle your bathroom routine? I can admit, I haven’t and didn’t really think about my options – and there ARE options.

Do you use:

(A) Toilet paper

(B) Flushable wipes

(C) Both

(D) do it European-style with a bideau (that’s a whole other Italian related story if you ever want to hear it)?


Summed all up, we learned is that using cleansing cloths along with your toilet paper can provide the cleanest and freshest feeling. However, for me the thought of leaving that big container of wipes on the toilet can be embarrassing at first, but now with new Flushable Cleansing Cloths from


- with their new sleek design upright dispenser – you can throw those babies out there for everyone to use and see.

It’s the taboo of talking TP and wipes that has Cottonelle along with documentarian Cherry Healey, known for getting people to talk “taboo,” with their new campaign: #LetsTalkAboutBums and the Clean Care Routine.
(Isn’t if funny that having someone with an English accept makes “potty talk” so much easier and acceptable?)

Cottonelle wants to get North Americans talking about their bums and on the better way to clean “down there” by using the Cottonelle Clean Routine. By combining the use of Cottonelle Toilet Paper and Cottonelle Flushable Cleansing Cloths, the Cottonelle Clean Routine is a revolutionary way to keep your bum cleaner.
