HP:PUL

Çay soğur, kitap soğumaz!

Makarnanın porsiyonuna 20-25 lira para verip 1 kitaba yahut edebiyat dergisine 10 lirayı çok görmemelisin bence. Taksim’e çıkıyorsun misal, gir Aslıhan Pasajına, orada 3 liraya bile kitap bulursun güzel kardeşim. Dışarıda çayın bardağı minimum 3 lira zaten. Üstelik çayın ömrü iki dakika iken kitabın ömrü sen okuduktan sonra senin yaşın kadar.  unutmadan, çay soğur kitap soğumaz!

Bahaneleri bir kenara bırakın.
Evet, çok pahalıya kitap yok mu? Var. Lakin neye göre pahalı? Bunu neyle kıyasladığınıza bağlı…

sigara
yemek
kıyafet
alkol

Ucuz olan hiçbir şey yokken ve sen her şeye bu kadar çok para harcarken, en son edeceğin laf kitaplar olması lazım. Şimdi o üzerindeki tommy t-shirti ve cebindeki iphone telefonu yavaşça masanın üzerineki starbucks içeceğinin yanina bırak.

YOUR GUIDE TO: sewing with- and caring for PUL.

first off, you may be asking yourself, what is PUL? PUL stands for polyurethane laminate. it’s a fabric that’s water resistant, and is great for those who have a heavy flow, or need the reassurance that PUL can give. i highly recommend starting out with  the brand babyville. you can search ‘babyville’ on amazon, and purchase three cuts for about $10 to start you off. if you’re thinking 'well, can’t i just substitute a shower curtain instead of buying PUL?’ the answer is NO. under no circumstances should you use a shower curtain in a pad. it’ll get hard, crinkly, and essentially becoming useless after a couple of washes. 

  • you can choose to back your pad in PUL, or have a hidden layer behind the core, or a hidden layer extended to the wings. under no circumstances should PUL be used on the top of a pad, or anywhere besides the very bottom layer. 
  • many people suggest using a ball-point needle to sew your PUL. they also suggest using polyester thread instead of cotton. if you don’t have these, don’t fret! it’ll be okay. 
  • avoid pins as much as possible when sewing your PUL! once a hole is made, it’s there forever. if you have to pin, pin only in the seam allowance. 
  • choose a seam that will make a- the smallest holes possible or b- not as many holes.
  • DO NOT IRON. this will cause the PUL to de-laminate. 
  • pads with PUL should be air dried as much as possible. repeated exposure to high heats will cause the PUL to de-laminate. 
  • to seal the holes that sewing makes, you can put your freshly washed WET pad into the drier for 20-30 minutes to HIGH. this should be repeated occasionally, but not very often. if the pad remains wet after this drying, put it out to air dry.
