Default Wet Wipes?



Advertise Here

Couple guys gave me grief tonight when I told em I use flushable wet wipes to wipe my ass. Don't knock it til you try it, you don't know what you're missing out on.

When I used to spend 30 days at a time without running water/electricity, wet wipes were my best friend.

Thoughts?

they are good enough for a baby and like you said, if you do not have running water or electricity, they can be a life saver. The only problem that I can see is if you try to store them for a shtf scenario is that they dry out too quickly and are nothing more than a scented napkin. But other than that who gives a damn what the guys said?

I have always been one that never really cared what other people said about me or thought of me because in the grand scheme of life, they are insignificant and will disappear into the night just like everyone but family will do. So do whatever it is that makes you happy as long as it is not illegal and doesn't hurt anyone (unless of course you are forced to hurt someone, then it is ok)

Use em in the field, not at home.
(Not really flushable)

Keep a pack in the map pocket of each passenger door.

Portable bidet at home. Flushable wipes when on the road.

I don't think they are septic tank friendly. Incinerate instead?

SeaBeeDaddy beat me to it.

I have that exact same model portable bidet. Although it is small, it works amazingly well, uses very little water, and works like a charm.

I always have the freshest bottom in the whole camp, lol. I know, because mostly everybody else complains of swampbutt after a few days...

Even flushable wipes start plugging up system. Sewage utiliries have complained about this and the cost to fix for years.

I use them when camping or hiking, they work great, much better than using leaves.

Pretty sure the plumbing lobby managed to pass a law to make the biggest drain blockers on the market sold as "flushable" . They must cost the nation hundreds of millions a year

I was really ill in my recent past.

Wet wipes work in those times.

'Nuff said.

They work great, don't flush them.



Then we sent divers 80-90 feet deep into the wet well/raw sewage to search in complete darkness with their hands to find and identify the obstruction. As we expected, they came up with these large masses of wipes in their first two loads, with more to come.

Typical entitled jerks.

If it works for those who find a kickass remedy to use when you are really hurting they just snatch it for daily use because they feel so precious. I've flushed perhaps a dozen since they were invented decades ago because the need was huge. Otherwise I'll suffer Scott 1000 sandpaper because they are easy on plumbing.

I have sewers and the pitch is well, so I use them at times. Really good for those messy cleanups...

They don't flush. My friend had a real mess in her apartment figuring that out. Landlord was furious she was flushing wipes and cost him all that for the plumber. "But they said they were flushable!"

THEY DO NOT FLUSH.

That said, throw them into the trash can. That is what we do. Caregiver for cripple here and they work great for him. I used to get a lot of bladder infections before I started using them as well. I just throw out the bag every day or so. He likes to use them to wipe his eyes, (eye first!) they are good for that.
