CANTON, Mass., Nov. 29, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- When nature calls, most people never really think about what happens after they flush the toilet. However, millions of people using wet wipes are finding that they can clog their plumbing and in some cases even cause backups in public sewer pipes and pump station equipment. Consequently, some cities have asked residents to refrain from flushing any wet wipes, even the flushable ones, and any homeowner with a septic system knows all too well that wet wipes can wreak havoc.
Unlike toilet paper, wet wipes are designed to maintain their integrity in water as they are pre-moistened. Even those that are marketed as "flushable" can still take time to break down after they have been flushed. Besides the cost of plumbers, since wipes take longer to degrade, they place a greater strain on the environment as well. To top it all off, some wet wipe brands use chemicals as ingredients that are not eco-friendly.
Fresh Dab eliminates these problems as it is a gel that is applied to toilet paper and used in the same way as a wet wipe, but quickly breaks down along with the toilet paper after being flushed. And since Fresh Dab is formulated with mostly natural ingredients, fewer chemicals are flushed down the toilet and back into the environment.
Not only is Fresh Dab eco-friendly, but it is also gentle to the body. All of the herbal extracts used in Fresh Dab have a long history of use to treat and clean skin. Aloe vera is famous for its anti-inflammatory properties, while witch hazel, an astringent, has been used to treat conditions such as hemorrhoids. Willow extract is a potent anti-microbial and as a pre-cursor to aspirin contains natural pain-reducing properties, while oat straw has been used to alleviate itchy skin conditions. Rooibos (pronounced roy-boss) is indigenous to South Africa and is soothing to skin as well as an anti-oxidant.
Though made for adults, Fresh Dab is simple enough for children to use. The viscosity of the gel is such that it will adhere to toilet paper without causing it to disintegrate while being held and is easy to apply to the body. Once applied, simply wipe dry. It may even reduce the amount of toilet paper an individual needs because the gel removes residue more efficiently than dry toilet paper alone.
Fresh Dab is also economical. Although it is a green product containing premium ingredients, at a list price of $7.99, it is comparable in cost to wet wipes. Each 8 oz. bottle contains up to 200 dabs which comes out to just 4 cents per dab. Fresh Dab, which is made in the USA, is available for purchase on their website www.freshdab.com.
