Spare yourself from going through a packet of wipes with every nappy change and try these poop gloves instead!
Anyone who has changed a nappy knows that you’re at risk of coming into contact with a rather smelly substance at any moment, and that baby wipes are of little help when it comes to true poo-explosions. Created to solve the problems of traditional baby wipes, Shittens are disposable mitten-shaped moist wipes (hilariously nicknamed ‘poop gloves’) that mean you’ll be able to get the job done without having to touch poop ever again.
Parents say the one-use mitten shaped wipes have been life changing. “Very soft and easy to use,” wrote one happy customer. “No finger poking through to mud valley!” The whacky invention of these poop gloves first debuted on the Howard Stern show, with many believing them to be an elaborate hoax as the show is renowned for its crazy pranks (and the name isn’t exactly family friendly). But, the poop gloves are so popular that they sold out on Amazon. Poop gloves are now back in stock for time-poor mums and dads who need the convenience of not just one hand sized wipe, but two!
Unfortunately, they’re still single use. One would think that by going to the trouble of creating a product to try to save wet wipes, you’d make something that people can reuse (and reuse and reuse and reuse!) until it must be recycled. But obviously, corporations still aren’t switched on to the fact that single-use disposable items are really harmful to both the environment and the social psyche. I for one would love to try out these shittens if they were reusable! Perhaps they next big thing will be wash-out-able poop gloves, and you’ll only need one pair!
