Thread: In Praise of the Good Stuff

    Default In Praise of the Good Stuff

    I just saw and commented on a thread "Do You Think Diapers Look Good On You?" I think wearing just briefs alone I can accept as OK. Wearing lined plastic pants over them looks silly to me.

    I took to wearing the lined pants as an antidote for leaks in bed and while sitting, especially while driving my car. I first saw them offered by Babykins/Kins and knew this would be a practical solution. I bought terry-lined polyester/vinyl pants and never once had a leak from my disposables go beyond the over-pant. Those were expensive and after a matter of months the plastic pant got brittle and cracked.

    I cut off the plastic pant, keeping the terry lining and bought some plastic pants from Gary. They will work nicely, but they're cut big and look pretty damn foolish. However, I'm OK with that, I guess. I know this is secure. I know this is practical. And I know this is about as cost-effective as I can get. From a performance point of view, this is the good stuff, even if the downside is looking foolish. (The plastic pant I got from Gary are the milky white; they're thick plastic, but will be durable and a good value, I think.)

    Sorry to hear those Babykins/Kins terry-lined plastic pants didn't last.

    What keeps the plastic of plastic pants so soft is something called plasticiser, which is in all soft plastics - plasticiser is what makes soft plastics soft. As you wash plastic pants with detergent, some of the plasticiser gets washed out every time they're cleaned - particularly in a washing machine, where the washing cycle goes on for some time. So if washed in a washing machine, any sort of plastic pant is going to become hard fairly quickly - something that would be tricky to avoid if you're trying to wash the attached terry pants.

    It sounds like you've done the right thing - you now have two separate pants - terry and plastic. By washing the Gary plastic pants by hand, I think you should find they'll last much longer than the Babykins/Kins pants that got hard quickly.

    Thanks. I'll be doing that. The pants I wore before were made of polyester fabric, coated with vinyl. It wasn't washing that made them brittle but wear and the stress of wear, especially down at the legs, in back.
