Where to find pool noodles in the winter?


CPST Instructor
I live in CO, so the usual places don't have them right now - I've checked Wal Mart, Target, and a couple dollar stores. I stocked up in August when they were on clearance but like every other check since then has needed them so I'm down to only one. Anyone have any good online sources or other places to find them?

Check with the local pools and you might be able to get a lot of towels donated from their lost and found.

Would the water heater pipe insulator sleeves work? Not sure how much they are but just walked down to the basement and saw it. Aside from the slit it is pretty much a pool noodle, though maybe a bit firmer and doesn't come in fun colors.

The pipe insulators I am thinking of are not as big/dense as the pool noodles. They have a bigger hole in the middle too. I would not use them.

I used the insulator instead of a pool noodle someone here suggested to make it easier for kids in boosters to buckle. It's not helping as much as I'd like and I'm wondering if a pool noodle would be better. I've yet to swap b/c it looks better and I'm hoping buckling is just a skill kids need to learn! LOL
