How it works

Any parent knows the trials and tribulations of waking up in the dark to change a dirty diaper or quickly needing to change a dirty diaper in the middle of the afternoon. At the beginning of their lives, what comes out of your baby doesn’t always stay “together.” With that said, sometimes changing a diaper isn’t a quick change, but rather, a process. Every parent also has that one story of how they got their baby’s waste somewhere on their clothes, their face, or their partner. Because of these shared life experiences, people got together and created Shittens. Shittens are wipes that are shaped and can be worn like mittens. It’s the wipe that covers your hand so that you don’t get someone else’s waste on your hands. They can be used on babies, pets, around the house, and any surface that needs a good wipe. All the people that have tested Shittens seem to be happy with how everything came out. They are durable and versatile.

 

Design

Design

The Shittens are designed like mittens. The entire mitten is a wipe that is similar to a baby wipe. The material is thick and any mess that you pick up with the mitten won’t bleed through onto your hand. The mitten covers your hand from fingertips down to just below your wrist. Other than that, it is a pretty simple product that serves a pretty simple purpose with the added joy of keeping your hands clean.
Safety

Safety

Shittens are completely safe to use on your baby, your dog, and around the house. They are gentle wipes that contain a cleaning solution that disinfects gently while it cleans. It is just like a baby wipe, but not as strong or chemically forward as a household cleaning wipe. It does not contain any bleach or harsh abrasive chemicals, yet it can clean and eliminate most germs around the house. Never leave the wipes laying around where a child can get to them as they are not a toy and should not go into a child’s mouth or eyes.
Safe For Babies

Safe For Babies

Shittens were developed for the parent who has a lot of diapers to change. Newborns sometimes need to be changed up to 14 times a day, and the mess can be harrowing. Shittens helps parents keep themselves clean while they clean their babies. Shittens are gentle like a regular baby wipe, but the added bonus is that your hand is completely covered. If your child is sick or the mess they leave behind on their behind travels up their back or down their thighs like a baby’s mess can easily do, a parent can slide on a Shitten and clean broad areas of their baby’s body in one wipe. Because the hand and fingers are completely covered, parents can gently get into the crevices of the human body and ensure that waste is not left behind on their baby’s skin making the baby uncomfortable or irritable.

If a diaper change is not needed, Shittens can also be used for a quick clean up on your babies face after a messy meal. Instead of using a wipe or wet paper towel or the baby’s bib, parents can take a Shitten and wipe a baby’s face, mouth, hands, and arms after a meal in the high chair. Every parent who is teaching their children how to use cutlery or allows their child the freedom to feed themselves will quickly see how fast a child gets food all over their face and arms. A shitten can easily clean up the baby and the high chair in one wipe. After cleaning up the baby’s body, the parent can then take the Shitten and clean up the high chair surface and fabric without using multiple wipes or other household cleaning products.
Safe For Toys

Safe For Toys

Shittens can also be used to clean up your baby’s toys. As babies grow and begin to develop, they use their mouths as their first point of tactile learning. Everything goes in your baby’s mouth. Before your baby potentially puts something dirty in their mouth, you can wipe down your baby’s toys and teething rings with a Shitten. You can wear one shitten and take all of the toys and rub the mitten over each toy. You can use your covered fingers to get into the creases of toys like under the arms of dolls, between the beads of teething rings, over the surfaces of jumpers and all the toys that hang on and are attached to the jumper, the grooves of toy keys, and the surfaces of play tables where your baby will place their toys or eat their snacks. With your hand completely covered, you are limitless to the amount of cleaning you can get done with a Shitten. You can also clean faster and with more precision.
Safe For Pets

Safe For Pets

As families grow bigger, not only are children added to the mix, but family pets are added as well. With small children in the home, pets can bring in the dirt, germs, and a lot of dander. Although a vacuum can handle the dander, the dirt that comes on your pet can’t be sucked up. Shittens, however, can be used to wipe down your pet’s paws when they come in from being outside and Shittens can be used to clean around their mouth and around their eyes. With a full mitten covering your hand, Shittens can also be used to wipe down your pet’s fur so that any surface dirt or dander can be easily removed before your pet lays down in the areas where your baby plays and keeps their toys. As soon as you bring your pet in from the outside, a Shitten can be used to handle their paws with one quick wipe. The threat of dirt being tracked into the house and across the floor where your baby will crawl or walk and drop their toys can be virtually eliminated by using a Shitten to clean up your pet first.

In case a pet does track dirt or mud into the house, a Shitten can also be used quickly to clean up the floor and remove the mess fast.
Safe For You

Safe For You

Shittens are not just for pets and babies. Shittens can also be used for anyone. There are multiple ways that Shittens can help you keep yourself clean. For starters, Shittens are great for a quick wipe down of the face and hands. Put on a Shitten and wipe your face clean after a workout or after doing work around the house. Feeling sweaty and dirty from doing yard work? Put on a Shitten and wipe away the sweat and grime from your face. It works for hands too. Swap a Shitten from hand to hand and you can clean the exposed hand quickly and easily and then dispose of the Shitten after you are done. Shittens are great for wiping down your arms and legs or any other part of your body that gets dirty from being outside or from cooking or from any activity that may get you dirty.

On a more personal level, Shittens can also be used in the bathroom after you use the toilet. In the same way, you would want a Shitten for when you change your baby, a Shitten is helpful in the event that you need a little extra cleaning after using the toilet. If the Shitten is gentle enough and durable enough for your baby, it will be durable and gentle enough for you. You will find, however, that Shittens are very thick. They are designed this way to keep materials from bleeding through onto your hand, which if something bled through, would defy the entire purpose of the Shitten. To that respect, you may not want to flush Shittens down your toilet because they may clog your pipes or back up your toilet or septic system. You may want to find a different method of disposing them if you use them after using the bathroom.
Cleaning Around the House

Cleaning Around the House

Due to the thickness of Shittens, they can also be used to clean around the house and keep the areas that your baby uses the most germ-free. Many like to put on a Shitten and clean their toilets and bathroom areas. It must be said, however, that although the Shitten will pick up a lot of grime and dirt off of your surfaces, the disinfecting power of Shittens is not as strong as if you used a typical household cleaner or household cleaning wipe. Those products that are designed specifically for cleaning around the house will be stronger and designed with a better formula for killing germs and keeping surfaces and toilets, showers, and sinks clean and sterile. Shittens are better used for doing a quick surface clean in between deep cleans. If you use a Shitten to wipe down your toilet, tub, or sink you will see that the Shitten will capture and lift a large amount of dirt, but it will not effectively disinfect.

Shittens are great after your baby is done eating and you want to wipe down the highchair. Shittens are also great for the tray and even the fabric seat of the highchair as well as for wiping downplay tables as well and the floor around where your baby may be crawling, walking or playing. Shittens are great for cleaning up counter messes, computer keyboards, computer and tablet, and cell phone screens, door knobs, cribs, and other areas that you touch that may collect germs. The gentleness of Shittens allows them to be used not only on the skin but around the house as well.
Price

Price

The biggest complaint and concern about Shittens is the price. Shittens are priced high for the number of cloth wipes that come in the pack. Many parents have found that you can turn the Shitten inside out and use it again and double the number of wipes that come in the pack. The one problem with that is that if there is a huge mess to clean, the Shitten must be thrown away immediately and not saved. If the mess is really big, say you need more than one to change a baby with an active diaper, for the price they sell for, you will not be getting your money’s worth. It may be worth considering how important it is for you to have Shittens and whether or not they suit your budget and cleaning needs.
Conclusion

Conclusion

Shittens have been proven time and time again to be better than an ordinary baby wipe. The broad surface of the mitten allows for a larger area to be cleaned quickly. Changing your baby is easier as well as cleaning up surfaces and toys around the house. If you choose to use your Shitten for something other than diaper changes you can use it on yourself, in your car, or around your house to keep your surfaces germ free. Although the price for Shittens is high compared to the number of wipes you get in a pack, and if you need to use more than one to perform a job you are losing out on your investment, Shittens are still a popular choice of parents for keeping their children and their children’s things clean and in good shape. Shittens are worth the purchase to see if they work for your needs, after that, it is up to you to determine if Shittens can be a part of your budget.
