Wet wipes typically contain plastic, which when flushed down the loo, add to global plastic pollution and blocks sewers. Did you know fatbergs consist mainly of baby wipes, at a massive 93%?
We have spent the last three years developing a solution – the world’s first truly flushable wipe. Our Safe to Flush Moist Tissues are made of reinforced, certified flushable paper – so no matter what you use them for, you can do so, without leaving a lasting mark on the planet.
Here are 13 ways to use our Safe to Flush moist tissue!
1. Wiping bums
The most obvious way to use them is to wipe your bum! There are lots of different bums in the family that will appreciate a moist tissue, rather than standard toilet paper. They are a useful aid for extra cleansing. Wipes are often favoured by elderly or disabled people, and those who find it hard to bend or clean up properly using standard toilet paper. Wipes are also incredible handy for toilet training children and for those who want to get clean on their period. Think of all that wiping can be done without leaving a plastic footprint!
2. Freshening up
Maybe it’s a particularly hot day, you’ve been at the gym on your lunch break, or you’re nervous before an important meeting. Give your body a quick once-over with a moist cleansing tissue to rid your skin of any sweaty smells and feel refreshed and cool!
3. During your period
Moist toilet tissues are great for cleaning yourself up when you’re on your period; particularly if you’re a pad user. The moist tissues are flushable and biodegradable. Period pads can be biodegradable but not flushable so always make sure they go in the bin or the compost, not the toilet!
4. Cleaning your cup
Maybe you’ve forgotten to take a water bottle to the toilet or you can’t access a sink easily in a public restroom. Either way, flushable toilet tissues are a good emergency fix to clean your menstrual cup in the cubicle. Just cleanse your cup with a moist tissue followed by normal dry toilet paper.
5. Cleaning up after babies and toddlers
Moist tissues are all natural, organic and cleansing – great for your family’s delicate skin. If your little one has got food on their face, flushable wipes are perfect for a quick clean around their mouths.
It’s not just faces, either. Inevitably, if you’re out and about with toddlers and toys, that toy will fall to the floor at some point. Moist tissues can be used to give it a wipe down before you hand it back to them!
We have other wipes in our range, including our baby wipes which are made from 100% organic cotton cloth. These aren’t flushable but they are biodegradable, so you can bin them and forget about them.
6. Wiping down baby changing items
Moist tissues are perfect for baby bums – and for the messy results of cleaning babies’ bums, too! If you need to give a changing mat or a potty a quick wipe, the moist tissues are perfect. Just clear up and then pop them down the loo.
7. For picnics and camping
If you pack reusable cutlery, or you need to give your camping utensils a clean, carry a pack of moist tissues around! Use the tissues to wipe them down and get rid of surplus dirt before putting them back in your bag. Handy if you’re not near a sink!
8. Washing your hands
Reattaching your bike chain; pumping up your tyres; filling up your petrol tank; eating a burrito – it’ll be a miracle if you don’t get some gunk on your hands when you do any of these. Rid your hands of dirt by wiping them clean with moist tissues.
9. Keep a pack in the car
Car rides can be bumpy, which means that there might be spillages along the way. Keep a pack handy in the car so you can clean up any mess quickly.
10. Cleaning or blowing your nose
During the cold and flu season, or when hayfever starts to kick in, the sniffles come out in full force. If you’ve forgotten to bring tissues with you or they feel too harsh on your skin, our moist toilet tissues will do the job. And they smell good too!
11. Cleaning pets
A moist tissue is great for giving pets a wipe before you let them back into the house after a winter walk – an easy solution before your mucky pup can make muddy paw prints all over the carpet.
12. Washing at festivals
Normal standards of cleanliness go out of the window when you’re partying in a field for a whole weekend. Our moist toilet tissue wipes are ideal as an eco-friendly way to have a DIY shower at a festival. You can feel guilt-free throwing these away, knowing they’re only a few rain showers away from fully disintegrating!
13. Cleaning up after sex
Sex can be messy. And you don’t want to ruin the moment and scramble around for something to clean up with. Reach for our moist tissues and get the job done!
The world’s first TRULY flushable wipe is here, and – just like toilet roll – is made of 100% tissue paper.
