UK Government Plans To Ban Wet Wipes

Wet Wipes Saved From Oceans & Sewers: 1 401 349

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.

CNN: Spray From Toilet Could Spread Coronavirus

CNN reports: Flush carefully. Study suggests coronavirus could spread in spray from toilet

Here’s a good reason to put the lid down before you flush: a new computer modeling study shows how a flushing toilet can send a cloud of little particles containing fecal matter into the air — fecal matter that could carry coronavirus.

Combat COVID-19 with Proper Hygiene

It’s not surprising that the coronavirus has got the whole world worried and anxious. It spreads fast and can remain on surfaces for more than a week. People all over the world are scrambling to stock up on face masks, rubbing alcohol, soap, toilet paper, and other essentials.

But before you join the paranoia, understand that the coronavirus is nowhere near as contagious as the chicken pox or the measles. It’s also nowhere near as deadly as SARS, MERS, the smallpox, Ebola, and the bird flu. Hence, there’s no need to panic. Just know how to keep good full-body hygiene and be safe from the COVID-19 virus.

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.
