    Is the scent of the pads something to attract puppies to it or is it for human noses? The first should be fine, not sure about the second (depends on the perfume). Newspaper is too slippery. Old towel is great. Paper towels will also work...this is what I use for the first week or so since I can change it frequently, they're relatively cheap (I go through about one roll), and you can see the droppings to evaluate them for abnormalities.
