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. Turns out this is not exactly the case, as city sanitation engineers are now reporting. This post is brought to you by Bodifresh.
“Flushable Wipes” May Cause Problems
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 fibers, 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 Cleansing Foam Is An Easy, Economical, Eco-Friendly Solution.
One company has now developed a product that’s even easier to use, completely flushable and eliminates the danger to sewage, septic systems and water treatment plants.
Bodifresh, Inc., of Wellington, Florida, offers a soothing, dermatologist-approved personal cleansing foam that’s applied directly from a small, 1.7-ounce pump bottle (good for 120 individual uses) to your regular toilet tissue, it’s literally making your own wet wipe. As Peter A. Gayle, president of Bodifresh, points out, “it’s even gentle enough to use when changing a baby’s diaper—it won’t irritate an infant’s delicate skin. And the pump-bottle itself is recyclable.”
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.
Bodifesh toilet tissue moisturizer is a revolutionary wet wipe alternative:
• Completely Flushable
• Dermatologist Recommended
• Fits in Pocket, Purse or Travel Bag
• Made in the USA
Available in hypoallergenic Unscented, plus four light refreshing scents, Bodifresh can be ordered online at www.bodifresh.com, and orders are shipped immediately, direct to the customer.

This sounds like a great alternative except that when toilet paper gets too moist it often crumbles into small pieces especially with the cheaper toilet paper.
