Toilet paper alone won’t keep you clean. Doctors recommend using a bidet, but bidets aren’t everywhere (especially in the U.S.), and certainly aren’t portable. The next best thing is a flushable, sustainable, moist wipe like Tidy Bum.
Will.i.am said in a past interview with Elle Magazine that baby wipes are what most people should consider using in terms of wiping.
‘Here’s proof on why people should have baby wipes. Get some chocolate, wipe it on a wooden floor, and then try to get it up with some dry towels. You’re going to get chocolate in the cracks. That’s why you gotta get them baby wipes,’ will.i.am said.
Toilet paper simply doesn’t do the job.
Rose George, author of The Big Necessity: The Unmentionable World of Human Waste and Why It Matters, told Tonic why using toilet paper doesn’t remove feces like it should.
‘I find it rather baffling that millions of people are walking around with dirty anuses while thinking they are clean,’ George said. ‘Toilet paper moves sh*t, but it doesn’t remove it.’
