So, last night I went wandering around my local Wal-Mart looking at the new Goodnites and seeing if they had the Tru-Fit's on the shelves, or at least the pads. I continued to wander and found myself in the adult incontinence section (I was thinking that they might keep the Tru-Fits there as they are going for a more grown-up look).
I was perusing the absolutely horrible selection when my eyes settled on two unfamiliar packages that said 'Depend' on them. The material was very strange, the patterns were very different and the packaging was very unique for incontinence products.
They were two new types of large pads (or chux) for furniture and your bed. They were packed in the heavy clear plastic box with zipper that bed sheets usually come in, leaving the contents on full display and the ability to reach in and feel the product.
The bed pads have a pretty cool looking alternating color stripe pattern, that covers the whole surface. It covers the WHOLE surface. I don't mean that the edges have a pattern and then it's just a large plain white pad, I mean the pattern covers ALL of it. The same for the smaller furniture pads.
The furniture pads are an ugly brown color that purportedly is designed to match the color of furniture such as couches. I took a couple of cell phone pictures that I will share when I can figure out how to do it. I am curious enough that I'll probably snag a bag of each when I get paid again. They're….interesting.
In the meantime, I just looked into their website and got the link for you guys. Just click one of the two options below the picture of either product to see more information and manufacturer pictures.
