In this part of the world, people are increasingly turning to moist toilet paper in addition to the usual type to ensure that feeling of proper hygiene after using the facilities. Yet, few will be aware of what this actually does to sewers and sewage treatment plants:
The wet wipe is usually made of fleece. The fibers are solidified so that the liquids applied do not decompose the cloth in the packaging. The whole thing must of course remain tear-resistant for the application. The packaging says: "Can be washed down". For the user, this means: The wet wipe ends up in the toilet after use and is never again flushed into nowhere. However, the way to the sewage treatment plant is usually not enough for the tear-resistant cloth to dissolve completely. And so it clogs pumps in pipes and causes enormous maintenance costs.
Sooner or later, the consumer must also bear this in the form of an increased channel fee.
But the wet wipe not only harms the environment:
- In order to make it particularly wet-resistant, formaldehyde compounds are often used. These can cause cancer, irritate the mucous membranes even in small quantities and trigger allergies.
- Germs get into the wet wipe packaging every time you touch it. Various preservatives counteract mold growth, but at the same time trigger itching and allergies in many users.
- Various fragrances and phthalates are suspected of causing liver and kidney damage. Emulsifiers also make the skin more permeable, which transports harmful substances into the body.
- The wet wipe not only has to be moist, but also as soft as possible. For this purpose, microplastic particles are often built into the fibers, which end up in the environment via wastewater and, in the worst case, into drinking water.
In short: Moist toilet paper not only harms the environment, but also the user.
But what to do if you want to do without damp toilet paper for the sake of the environment and health, but no bidet has been provided in the bathroom for thorough cleaning?
