No Wipe is Flushable, Finds Research into 101 Products

We have done the impossible: Unlike flushable wet wipes, toilet paper + SATU laboratory toilet paper gel is truly flushable wipe!

Canadian CTV News has reported:

“There is no such thing as a flushable wipe, no matter what a package is telling you, says the researcher behind a new study into flushability.”

Barry Orr, a sewer inspector with the City of London, Ont., and a masters student at Ryerson University, led the study, believed to be the first test of single-use wipes against rigorous criteria for flushability. Researchers in the Ryerson Urban Water lab studied 101 products, including 23 labelled as flushable. They used a working model of the average home’s lavatory system from toilet to sewer, including typical bends and slope, plus average water pressure seen in urban infrastructure.

The wipes were tested to international wastewater industry specifications for toilet and drain-line clearance, along with disintegration. Not one wipe passed the tests.

Stop the Crap! Clean Up with Toilet Paper Gel

£100 million is spent annually to address 300,000 sewer blockages in the UK. A 2017 study found that 93% of the materials that cause these blockages are wipes flushed down the toilet.

The same thing is happening in the US. In October 2018, Charleston Water spent $140,000 to fix damages caused by a 12-foot long clog of disposable wipes. A similar clog happened again in June 2019 and cost another $60,000.

3 Reasons to Use Toilet Paper Gel Instead of Foam, Spray or Flushable Wipes

1. CLEANS PORES BETTER. While dry toilet paper gets most of the fecal matter when you wipe, your skin still remains dirty. But when you add gel to your regular toilet paper, the combination helps clean better and reduces the risks of spreading fecal matter to underwear. Compared to foams and liquid sprays – gels are designed for deep cleansing and are especially good for unclogging pores while removing bacteria from the surface of your skin.
