    Huh, McGyver Tampons. Who knew? Okay now, seriously.

    Feminine products of this sort being developed, was a direct result of the battle dressings utilized during WWI.

    A cotton shortage led to Kimberly-Clark, a paper mill company, develop a wood pulp that was five times more absorbent than cotton, and branded it as "cellucotton". Nurses, all female, who used rags or sponges during their menses at that point in time, found the bandages to be liberating..........for lack of a better word.

    The war ended, and the product made the natural transition by the rebranding of their product.

    I can think of another use for them he didn't even mention. A use I've grown quite use to in the past 20 years...

    Seriously though I would never have thought of some of those. Nice to know my supply would come in handy if needed.

    That's an old cop trick that I learned from an old cop.

    Nice to know that it isn't lost on others.

    That's funny. Though having such information lends context to a lot of other things in life.

    So perhaps not so useless after all?

    You mean, other than the obvious?

    For those who may not know, they aren't the healthiest of feminine products to utilize. Especially when left in for too long.

    Highly absorbent products are also associated with an increased risk of TSS, as well as increased dryness and the lacerations and ulcerations that can occur as a result.
