When wet wipes were introduced years ago, they seemed to be an ideal personal hygiene and baby-care product. Economical, easy to use, and…flushable.
Well, not exactly, as city sanitation engineers are now reporting.
The problem is that although some are, indeed, “flushable,” they’re not biodegradable. That’s a big difference—and as several news sources are reporting, a growing problem.
Since they’re made of polyester and other synthetic fibres, the wipes simply don’t break down and dissolve in a sewer system. Instead, they build up in treatment plants, clogging filtering screens, pipes, and pumps that are now costing some municipalities millions of dollars to repair and replace equipment throughout the US.
Bodifresh Toilet Tissue Moisturizer® is more effective than dry toilet tissue and more comfortable and convenient to use than wet wipes. Plus, it’s completely biodegradable.
