Diapers As Packing Material

I've heard of parents using clean diapers to pad dishes when they pack up for a move. It makes a certain amount of sense, because the parents know they'll use the diapers eventually and therefore aren't wasting a bunch of paper towels or whatnot. And since they did the packing it doesn't seem gross.

However, when I opened a box of bowls I bought on eBay (my children have a bad habit of smashing my Desert Rose dishes) and they were wrapped in adult diapers (yes, clean ones) I was a bit grossed out. I tried not to be, but still -- yuck.


Just the mental association...ewww. I agree!

That's just weird.

It would seem cheaper to go buy some bubble wrap.

Those things aren't cheap.

Hey, now, there's a tip! We won't be using the adult kind, though.
