10 Ways of Wiping You’ll Wish You Never Knew
Why We Need Better
There is one thing that we all have in common: what goes in must come out. We all have to poop and sometimes it isn't the part of our day that we look forward to most. And for good reason—depending on where you are toilet paper options aren't the most appealing.
Looking back in time to see what our ancestors did, the best way to wipe has constantly evolved.
Early on people used everything they had available to them such as sticks, leaves, corn, rocks, fruit skins, water, hands, wool, or hemp. At times, people hared a cloth with their family that was kept by the toilet.
Compared to all these options, toilet paper seems like a legitimate gift from the heavens. For many of us, toilet paper is the only wiping solution we have ever known. Considering that it keeps us from having to use rocks to wipe, it seems kind of amazing. However, toilet paper does come with its share of issues.
It doesn’t take too much of a leap to realize that toilet paper doesn’t give you the best clean. Toilet paper is often known to cause hemorrhoids and raw butts from the constant tugging trying to achieving that perfect clean. The more you wipe the more toilet paper turns into sandpaper.
So if toilet paper isn't enough, what then? Wipes? The thing about these “flushable” wet wipes is that they contain synthetic fibers that are still clogging city plumbing systems. In a study by Ryerson University in Ontario, over one hundred single-use wipes were tested and the conclusion was that not a single one was flushable (see article). According to experts, only toilet paper and human feces are truly flushable.
