If you use a bidet: Congrats! You’re ahead of the game. Bidets have been shown to be effective at cleaning poop better than toilet paper alone, but not everyone has easy access. Even if you’ve installed one at home, you’re out of luck if nature calls while you’re away (at work, or your honey’s pad, or running errands, or on safari…you get the gist). And while you need to wipe dry after using a bidet to remove moisture, which can contribute to tissue breakdown and bacterial overgrowth, BidetBalm cleans without water so it leaves no trace moisture behind.
If you currently use flushable wipes — Your intentions are good but you’re really doing a disservice to plumbing, the environment and your bootyhole. “Flushable wipes” still pose a problem to plumbing because they don’t readily disintegrate. Even those that have been engineered to degrade still pose a problem immediately after flushing once they hit a 45-degree angle in the pipes. The consensus from plumbers and municipal wastewater treatment plants is that nothing but toilet paper should be flushed.
If you currently just use toilet paper — No judgement here but you’re likely walking around with a layer of doodoo that’s been spread around by old-fashioned TP. And while TP spritzed with a dose of water is definitely better than dry TP alone, poop tends to have a fat content of 10-20%. We all know that water and oil don’t mix, so some fecal matter gets left behind. Just as fancy oil-based cleansers remove crud from your face, BidetBalm removes crud from your rear. It’s science.
