Kirkland Signature Extra-Large Absorbent
Pads help owners ease through this process.
The product does its job so well, and at such a
value, that it has quickly become a big favorite

and they have other uses as well, from bedding to helping with messy jobs, such as
changing car oil. Item #956696. Available in
