It’s Kinda Like Glue. Only It’s For Your Butt.

For those of you who have asked, the raffle for the Christmas Quilt, and other gifts (webkinz!) is still open.


I finally got my hands on some ILEX.

On first glance this stuff looks pretty much like all the other Teeny Tiny Designer Hiney creams I’ve used.

And if you’ve used one tush cream, you’ve used them all.


So, why exactly would you need to read the directions. Don’t they all go along the lines of:

open jar
spread on clean fanny
cover fanny with diaper

Well. ILEX is a wee bit different…………a maverick among it’s peers.

The directions on the back of it’s bottle read:

a covering of petroleum jelly should be applied over ILEX to prevent the gluteal crease or diaper from sticking.

Which in layman’s terms means that unless you cover the Ilex with Vaseline your child’s butt cheeks will, indeed, run a very high chance of being cemented together.

Which in turn can be a bit uncomfortable.

But this only happens if you failed to read the directions really carefully.


disclaimer: No Brave Hero Hineys were seriously damaged during the experience that inspired this post.

However, the author of this blog entry does plan on writing the ILEX company and suggesting they print their directions for use in really BOLD type from now on.

I'll admit it. I'm a news junkie. Some people groove off of old episodes of the Office. Me? It's CNN...
