What are flushable wipes? What are the differences between flushable wipes and toilet paper? And which is better?
After using the toilet, the most common and traditional method of cleaning yourself up is with toilet paper. But this can be a huge pain because toilet paper doesn’t always clean that well. If you choose to use wet wipes instead in order to solve that problem, you’re faced with a different issue: wet wipes can’t be flushed down the toilet. This means that you need to dispose of them in the garbage, leading to an unpleasant build up of trash.
But there is a third option, an option that solves these problems perfectly. This option is called flushable wipes, and you’ll soon understand why their introduction to the market is so exciting.
You might be wondering what exactly flushable wipes (also called moist toilet tissue) are. They’re wet wipes with a special cleansing solution that clean both gently and effectively after using the toilet. But what makes them really unique is the flushable part. Instead of throwing them out and contributing to waste, you instead can flush them down the toilet immediately. This means that you can have the best of both worlds – the aspects of wet wipes that you love, as well as the aspects of toilet paper that you love. Then you can ditch all the bad parts of wet wipes and toilet paper!
Although you can flush toilet paper down the toilet, the main issue with them is that they don’t give you the same refreshing clean that flushable wipes do. They’re not pre-moistened or ready for more heavy duty cleaning. This means that flushable wipes are much more hygienic than toilet paper, because they thoroughly clean in a way that toilet paper just can’t. Toilet paper also isn’t as gentle or soft as flushable wipes. Its material is often rough on the skin and leaves red marks behind. However, flushable wipes are specially made to be soft and gentle, leaving you feeling clean and soft afterwards. Flushable wipes are definitely a priority buy because they can be used in all situations, whereas toilet paper is only good some of the time.
Although there are many wipes that claim that they can be flushed, they don’t necessarily meet the necessary requirements in order to be truly flushable. However, Albaad is actually the first company worldwide to successfully pass the IWSFG Flushability Standard test. Hydrofine technology (what we use to manufacture our flushable wipes) complies with all regulations and has been rigorously tested and approved by the CPT Institute. Hydrofine also has the “fine to flush” qualification, passing the UK water industry specifications. When we say these wipes are flushable, we truly mean it! That’s why Albaad should be your first choice as your flushable wipes manufacturer.
When we put flushable wipes vs toilet paper to the test, the results were clear: flushable flushable wipes are superior to toilet paper in every way. From a hygiene perspective, they clean more efficiently and thoroughly; they’re softer and gentler; and they flush down the toilet just as easily as toilet paper. They’re the modern solution to an age-old problem. When you’re next considering what products are a must in the bathroom, you’ll already know to add Hydrofine® Flushable Moist Toilet Paper to the list. You’ll be so glad you did.
