So last night me and a few friends were hanging out and one went to the bathroom and found baby wipes( I do not have a kid). I said so I can get that "fresh outta the shower clean" feeling after droppin a deuce. Half agreed with me half thought we were bonkers and had an argument with me for 10 mins ... regular TP sometimes doesn't do the trick.
So bottom line, what are your thought about anyone, not being a baby, using baby wipes/ moist toilet paper for their personal hygiene needs as opposed to using dry normal TP?
The standard issue roll of TP in my milk crate of surf stuff in the back of the rig, as well as the secret stash on the boat, are both being replaced with baby wipes. Man alive. You never know what you'll stumble upon in the forum.
don't waste your money. Baby wipes are expensive and not environmentally friendly since they're soaked in chemicals and are packaged in heavy duty plastic (very little of that actually gets recycled).
Anyway, if you're at the beach, why do you need a perfumed butthole?...when 1/8 inch away it's still "unclean" (well, just because you use baby wipes doesn't mean you got all of it). You're full of digested food, get over it.
I've developed what I call is "The Dabber". I don't use baby wipes cause they're inconvenient. So I do one of two things. When I'm home, I take my TP and run it QUICKLY under the running water in the sink. You can't get your TP too wet or it will fall apart as you wipe. Then with the wet TP, you have to do a 'dabbing' type action to clean up down there. If you do a full on wipe, the TP will fall apart and produce some crazy dingleberrys. You just dab and repeat til the paper is clean.
When in a public restroom, I'll get a number of paper towels from the dispenser, wad them up and soak them in the sink. Squeeze a bit of water out and place on top of the TP dispenser in the stall. Once you drop the dook, you use the soaked paper towels as a source of moisture for your TP. You have to be more judicious with this method since there's a limited source of moisture. When you're done, throw the wet paper towels in the trash - don't try to flush them.
When you're done, you can dry yourself with a regular TP wipe down if you don't like the wet feeling...
Someone already mentioned it, but it seems crazy to me that not EVERYONE does this. Imagine sticking your hand in mud. Then use a dry paper towel to clean up. Everyone would rather at least use a wet paper towel. You'll get much cleaner. I haven't had an itchy butthole ever since developing this 'dabber' technique. Plus, it doesn't cost any extra money.
If you use baby wipes or any other wipes, even the "flushable" type, consider yourself partly responsible for our surface waters being as polluted as they are. These wipes are a huge strain on a sewer system. They bind with other solids and have been found directly responsible for thousands of individual sewer spills. The "flushable" type are just that. Flushable. Sure they'll go down the drain, but will remain intact for months.
Get your head out of you a**. Everything flows downhill. Think beyond what is directly in front of you.
