    I go through a lot of maxi-pads because I have an elderly male dog. I use them in his "belly band" in case he forgets to let me know he needs to go out. The pads come individually wrapped in a non-woven "fabric" kind of like the dryer sheets I save for piecing and other uses. So, I thought, "Why not? I'll iron one flat..." Bad idea! It melted instantaeously the moment in came in contact with my iron. Luckily, I was able to clean it off by ironing on an old washcloth and the iron's ok. Oh, well! Live and learn! :wink:

    oh i remember ironing cotton shirts of my husbands. even though washed, when the iron hit the under arm area i could smell a difference. I know Billie Lauder makes quilt blks out of shirts but i'd never cut near the under arm area for those.

    I laughed when I read your post!!! The belly band he wears is a piece of fleece that wraps around and fastens with velcro. I use the maxi pads as liners in case there's an accident. I get the belly bands from Happy Jack Dog Diapers at this website: http://www.bestdogdiapers.com/
    They work great, are washable and very long lasting, and Curley doesn't seem to mind them at all. In fact, whenever I put a fresh one on him, he stands still for me just wagging his tail. It's really helped him and us enjoy his old age! BTW: That's him in my avatar (w/o a belly band).
