Baby-wipes for adults; How disastrous are they?
They come in many varieties with a soft touch and classy scent of your liking. Unknown by many, the much trending baby wipes for adults pose a hazardous challenge to the environment. Though they are thought to be more hygienic by most Americans, these wet wipes have proved to be more costly in the long run. One may ask how. This lucrative lavatory feature is made of materials that are very difficult to dissolve in water. Many may not know this, but a high percentage of sewage blockages are caused by this material. Ever wondered why baby wipes are not to be disposed in the toilet? Well, there is a good reason for that but people have vehemently been swayed away by this clandestine lavatory material and continue using it.
It’s not too late for the American population however. There are more cheap ways of maintaining toilet hygiene which have proved to work. And I am not talking about the traditional tissue papers. Although they are effective, it is important to move with the current trends in lavatory hygiene. I am talking about the bidet. It is a lavatory feature invented in the year 1710 but has not gained popularity so to speak in the US and Canada. Here are the main benefits of the hand held bidet over the adult baby wipes.
Wet baby wipes are averagely $9 in the market today. An average American family will use approximately $40 in a month to purchase these bathroom hygiene wipes. That translates to $480 in a year. On the other hand, a simple hand-held bidet will only cost $59 to purchase and five minutes to install. It's a one time cost, leaving the current (more environmentally friendly) toilet paper option more feasible for just drying purposes.
Saves trees and save the environment
As stated earlier, the world is advocating for the use of more eco-friendly materials in order to save our beautiful environment. Toilet paper is made from trees, approximately 21 million per year. It only means that we are going to cut down more trees as long as this crude method of hygiene is still in use. Furthermore, a study has shown that a large percentage of sewer line blockages are caused by substances used in our homes. This can be accredited to the use of toilet paper and wet baby wipes in most homes. This has become a rampant problem in big cities like New York. The only remedy to curb this menace which has cost cities tens of millions of dollars to maintain is to set up rules on how to dispose the wet wipes.
In order to save our trees and the environment in all, we have to use more environmentally friendly materials. This is where the hand-held bidet comes in. As opposed to the baby wipes, this feature will only require water to effectively perform its task, a fraction of the water used in a single flush. There will be no trees cut down at all. The trees will bring rain to be used in our bathroom which is a win win for all.
Cleanliness is next to godliness. The main point of using these lavatory features is to remain clean after use of the toilet. We want to stop the spread of disease and illness, and the bathroom is the final frontier in the home we have yet to master in this regard. The damage caused by wet wipes aside, maybe it would be worth it for a really clean behind. However, in reality they don't work that well to justify their damaging characteristics. A percentage of waste will remain through a wipe. The best and most efficient way to maintain general body cleanliness and lavatory cleanliness is the use of a hand-held bidet. You will be sure that you are even cleaner after washing all the dirt away.
