Flushing Away Unflushable Problems With Wet Wipe Alternatives
A recent trend in personal hygiene is giving our bums a little more love. Toilet paper often lacks in its cleansing properties, and, not to mention, it’s often rough and scratchy. Some people have turned to wet wipes for cleaner derrieres. Unfortunately, these wipes are wreaking havoc on our plumbing systems. Is there an alternative to “flushable” wipes? You’re in luck when it comes to staying fresh and clean without clogging your plumbing.
We are proud to announce the next revolutionary step in personal hygiene: Refresh Liquid Wipe® wet wipe alternative. Refresh Liquid Wipe® is applied directly to toilet paper to make a custom flushable wipe that will leave your bottom feeling refreshed and relieve you of the worry of plumbing clogs.
Why “Flushable” Wipes Really Aren’t Flushable
Some wet wipe manufacturers label their wipes as “flushable,” even though the act of flushing wet wipes can actually clog our sewer systems. Wipes simply cannot transform from being durable enough to be soaked in liquid to dissolvable immediately after use. In fact, a study conducted in Canada showed that not one of the 101 wipes labeled as flushable that they tested moved properly through a sewer system. Another study found that about 90% of the giant municipal plumbing clogs known as “fatbergs” removed from sewer systems consisted of large amounts of disposable wipes.
What Happens to Flushed Wet Wipes
While toilet paper consists of materials that disintegrate in our pipes, many wet wipes are made of synthetic materials, plastics, or polyester, which will not break down. To get rid of the clogs caused by disposable wipes, cities must spend millions of dollars, and professionals must deal with these hazardous materials. In the end, these fatbergs (or the solid masses of waste mainly consisting of disposable wipes, tampons, and cooking fats) still end up in landfills, despite what many consumers believe.
Choose a Greener Alternative to Wet Wipes
So, why are disposable wipes labeled as “flushable”? There are currently no regulations restricting companies from placing this label on their products. It takes an environmentally conscious person to do their own research and realize that just because they can flush a wet wipe down the toilet doesn’t mean it’s good for their plumbing or the environment.
Fortunately, there’s a greener, eco-friendly alternative to “flushable” wipes that will keep your skin happy and your plumbing and landfills clear. Our toilet paper spray and foam can be applied to any quality toilet paper to provide the soothing qualities of a wet wipe without all the problems that come with those wipes.

The next time you’re shopping for your personal hygiene, skip the wet wipe. Instead, choose a toilet paper spray or foam as your wet wipe alternative from Refresh Liquid Wipe®.
