Since it is an acronym for PolyUrethane Laminate, I just refer to it by its letters. Besides, I think calling it "pull" sounds weird
Oh, and since the other similar fabric in diaper making, TPU, is an acronym for Thermoplastic PolyUrethane, it makes sense to call both by their letter names. Unless you want to call TPU "tee-pooh" or "tpoo"
That is too funny! And I call it P U L.

I say "P U L" and find it kinda irritating when people pronounce it any other way.

Re: Pronunciation poll - PUL

I use the letters. I just realized that some people call it pull the other day and thought it sounded weird.

Re: Pronunciation poll - PUL

I really dont say it out loud much but when I do i say Pull because dh knows it as that and I would rather not have to say things twice.

I have said " Lawl" before in a conversation it was embarrassing and I /facepalmed at myself haha!

I say pull and I hear my odd and her friends say that something funny made them loll every day.

It's like an ATM card. How many of you have P I N numbers? We all have pin numbers right?
