A proposal that could ban the sale of most “flushable” sanitary wipes in New York City stores is set to be heard by the City Council next week.
The bill would also prohibit labeling the wipes as flushable unless they’ve passed a test approved by the city Department of Environmental Protection.
Do you know how to wipe your butt?
It seems like a silly question, since you’ve likely been wiping your butt longer than you’ve been able to write your own name. But if we’re all doing it the right way, then why are skidmarks a common occurrence?
If you’ve had an embarrassing incident with skidmarks, even once in a rare while, it’s time to take a closer look at your butt-wiping technique.
Dr. Joel Krachman, MD, the Chief of Gastroenterology for New Jersey-based AtlantiCare Regional Medical Center, says there aren’t any hard and fast rules when it comes to wiping—except that you probably shouldn’t do it hard and fast.
Up or down, paper folded or bunched, all the methods offer the same effectiveness.
If you're anything like me, IBD can make you feel unclean and a little less than fresh after a trip to the toilet. Plus to top it off, you can really make yourself sore by the constant wiping when trying to make sure you're clean.
So I tend to carry with me a packet of wet toilet wipes. They're a little embarrassing to carry - for starters they say 'toilet training wipes' on the front of the pack so if anyone does see them, it looks like I have a severe issue of incontencance or some form of inability to use a loo! Plus they're quite bulky (so no little girlie bags!) and the seal doesn't always seal! So therefore they dry out, but not before wetting whatever else I happen to have in my bag.
Consumers who have come to love wet wipes
now have a substitute that is better for the environment and the
fresher way to go, according to independent personal care brand Aquinelle.
Its new Toilet Tissue Mist ($4.99-$19.99) is said to transform ordinary
toilet paper with one spritz into a refreshing cleanser.
The concept for Aquinelle came about nearly two years ago when Joe Kassin, the company’s founder and CEO, had one too many clogged drainpipes. As a father of seven and grandfather of four, he experienced many incidents of wipes backing up his house’s plumbing system. A business man and entrepreneur at heart, Kassin began to experiment in his bathroom with different solutions for this problem. His bathroom began to look more like a science lab but it was here that Kassin came up with the idea for Aquinelle.
I’ve been spending a lot of time in Tel Aviv lately and one thing that took me a while to get used to is that over there seemingly everyone uses wet wipes (to clean multiple body parts…) and toothpicks on a regular basis – even at fancy restaurants. When I asked a close friend about it she told me that growing up her mother always told her, “you’ll never get everything without a wet wipe.” Well…she’s not wrong! And it seems the US is catching on. Just recently, I was watching Shark Tank and a new line called Dude Wipes got an investment from Mark Cuban. Aquinelle is a new line created in the same vein; it’s a toilet tissue spray, a.k.a. the frugal version of wet wipes. Full-size bottles (8.25 oz) are $9.99 and travel-size bottles (3.25 oz) are $4.99. They come in a few scents (Ocean Breeze, Rainforest, Citrus Burst, and Island Mist) and contain aloe vera and witch hazel to sooth your backside

Why parents need it: Big kids often don’t wipe thoroughly enough, but they think they’re too grown up to use wipes.
Why kids will love it: It smells great, it’s easy to use, and it doesn’t feel as if it’s for babies.
Savings tip: One pump on a wad of toilet paper is all you need. The bottle will last for ages, and toilet paper is much cheaper than wipes.
