    I just use an alcohol wipe, which are damn sight cheaper than these specialized pads.

    Great idea! Living with Type 1 for over 30 years, if flabbergasted me about 10 years ago to find out that most people put their finger in their mouths after sticking. Blech! With fingers/hands being one of the most germy body parts, this really grossed me out.

    I find I tend to waste a whole paper towel or napkin or something to do the dab. When I don’t have anything handy, it is a real problem. These would help!

    DMProducts seem to be a very clever solution to a very common problem!

    But I like the look on people’s faces when I lick the blood off. Muhahaha. It stops them from saying stupid stuff.

    My 10 yr old son is T1, and I would love to avoid the pants-wiping! DMProducts.

    DMProducts great idea. Some folks have knarly meter cases and blotter pads just seems like a smart idea

    For the most part I’m a wiper on the inside of my meter case. Every so often I clean it off with a wet paper towel. I think that this product is a great idea except that I can barely zip my Freestyle meter case closed now because of using a MultiClix lancet device and there would be no room for Dabs. DMProducts

    DMProducts : great idea!!! This would also help my daughter when injection site bleeds or leaks insulin. We’re always running for a paper towel and this would just be easier!! Like the idea of shapes too!! :)

    With one pants-wiper and one licker this would be a very welcomed product! DMProducts

    Great idea. Our daughter is 16 and was diagnosed at age 2. She is a wiper, and I regularly clean the meter pouch clean of the blood stain. I will try these!
    God Bless all the kids and adults with this terrible disease. I know it can be treated, thank god, and you can live a healthy life, however it is 24/7 all the time!!!! I can’t imagine how I am going to deal when she goes to college. Kudos to all of you dealing with this disease.

    DMPRoducts I just recently asked my mother to make some small squares of absorbant fabric for me to carry in my case in lieu of the travel kleenex I keep in there and use until I can no longer find a clean spot to wipe. I was thinking the fabric (preferably a dark color) would at least hide the blood spots. These dabs are a great idea!

    DMProducts are a great idea. I just use a kleenex until there it is full of blood.

    As a 30 year Type 1er, also a licker…sometimes a wiper, I would definitely love to try the DMProducts AKA Moms solution for her Type 1er.

    With cool shapes for different ages, charities supported, many Type 1ers would totally be excited to use these.

    Woo Hoo! #DMProducts

    I use a tissue tucked in my meter case, which stays and is reused for, um, approximately a year. (As long as my lancet, haha.) Great idea!

    Wait, why not just use the alcohol swab you just used to clean your finger off in the first place? Where did that go to? Why wouldn’t you just use that?

    That’s a wonderful idea! I use tissue paper or toilet paper but i have to admit, there have been times when i wiped on my clothes (yuk!).

    DMProducts is a wonderful item and I think everyone should buy them as they are so handy and better than wasting a tissue or paper towel.

    I absolutely love these! My daughter used to wipe her finger on her case and it would just smell like hamburger.. GROSSSSSS!
    I purchased a box of the squares and a box of the HEART shapes too! I ended up giving away the squares for my fellow T1 buddies to try out… They all LOVED them! Will be reordering soon!
    What else I love about her (the d-momma creator) is that unlike the pump pouch makers… She does NOT OVERCHARGE OR TAKE ADVANTAGE of us T1 families. A great product at a great price! Love love love!

    Those pads look cute and useful! Personally, I just wipe the excess blood on the side of the test strip, while it’s still in the meter.. Then throw that away, it works!

    I’m totally a wiper on the inside of my case and mt husband thinks it gross, but I can’t see wasting a whole paper towel or kleenex on a little drop of blood(unless I poke myself too hard)So DMProducts sounds like the perfect solution! :)
