One of the toughest things about potty training? Skid marks. Nobody likes to talk about them and I’m pretty sure I’m putting myself out there by writing a online article about them. But they’re real and for some, a real problem. Well, not to worry, I’m sharing My #1 Potty Training Tip to Avoid Skid Marks. As the mama of two children, I must confess, we still face a few challenges in potty training — and skid marks showing up inside the backside of our kids’ underwear is one of them. One simple change can make all the difference for the little person in your life.
This is me, trying to make a difference in my son’s life. I wonder if he knows how much of a difference he’s made in mine.
My #1 Potty Training Tip
There is one small thing you can teach your child to do to avoid skid marks. Want to know what the one simple change is? Flushable Cleansing Cloths. What? Cloths that are moist and easy to use — for those errr, messy bathroom visits.
Haven’t heard of them?
Well, you’ll be happy to know that Sam’s Club carries a MEGA Pack of Cottonelle® Fresh Care* Flushable Cleansing Cloths and the new Member-Voted Design packs. If you’re going to buy something that gets used every day, (often a half-dozen times a day) just get the MEGA PACK with 462 Flushable Cleansing Cloths. Trust me… no more skid marks. 😉
Tutorial: Incorporating Flushable Cleaning Cloths into your Potty Training Routine
Tip #1: Teach kids how to use the Flushable Cleaning Cloths. I spent some time with my boys showing them how to peel back the clear cover on the Cottonelle® Fresh Care* Flushable Cleansing Cloths without tearing it off the package. I also showed them the clean ripple texture and explained that the tiny ripples in the flushable cleansing cloths would help them have cleaner skin.
Tip #2: Incorporate the flushable cleansing cloths in to your potty training routine. If your son or daughter enjoys rewards for a job “well done”, your family will love the Potty Training Charts I’ve created. There are four styles to choose from – two for boys and two for girls, and some fun door hangers to place on the door knobs when a child is using the restroom. We’re using stickers to reward our kids when they complete a step on the potty training chart. One of the significant blocks for potty training (as indicated on the charts) is the “wipe” box. Make sure to show your kids the flushable cleansing cloths and explain how they fit into the potty training routine. Scroll down for your FREE Potty Training Charts.
Tip #3: Make Flushable Cleaning Cloths easy to find. Place a package of Cottonelle® Fresh Care* Flushable Cleansing Cloths in easy to access places around the bathroom.
Tip #4: Make Flushable Cleaning Cloths easy to use on-the-go. Put two or three cloths in a small zip-lock bag and put them in your son or daughter’s backpack or pocket to have on hand when to go to the restroom. Since the cloths are flushable, you can use them anywhere. The cloths are both sewer and septic safe. Keep skid marks from returning home… Oh, and let kids know, these cleansing cloths are not intended to be used on your hands or face, they’re intended for bathroom use only.
