DIY wet wipes with healthcare startup SATU Laboratory
Throughout history people have used moisturizing components for cleaning their bottoms—yes I used the B-word—and in many countries, even today, the use of dry toilet paper is considered dirty and unhygienic. In these countries, the most common practice is a thorough, soapy wash and rinse afterwards using a ‘bidet.’ This is logical because we neither clean our face nor hands with a dry towel when they get dirty. So, why are we still using dry toilet paper for our bottoms? That’s completely bizarre!
If our hands get dirty, we wash them with soap. If our hair is greasy, we wash it with the help of shampoo. Why then do we behave differently after visiting the toilet? Choosing to hope only on dry paper?
