"Purch your lips together and that's exactly what your ass looks like"
Resident Breakfast Club guest and medical doctor, Dr. OZ, stopped by The Breakfast Club once again to discuss one of the biggest debates in modern hygiene history...
What is the best way to clean your butt after you take a poop?
Charlemagne The God and the breakfast club crew were surprised to find out that the famous TV doctor spits on toilet paper before he wipes. Dr. Oz explains the benefits of adding moisture to your toilet paper. Naturally, the hosts asked the question we were all thinking, "what about wet wipes?" The cardiothoracic surgeon turned TV personality has been campaigning against flushable wipes for years.
In the past, Dr. Oz has addressed his issue with flushable wipes on his talk show. He took a tour of a New York City wastewater treatment plant and saw the problem of clogged sewer systems up close. He warned people to look before they flushed – those wipes might not be as flushable as we think.
The city estimates that out of more than 53,000 tons of refuse collected in 2017 from its 14 treatment plants, 95 percent were wet wipes. That’s almost doubled since 2007, as has the price of disposing them in landfills—to at least $19 million a year.
NACWA’s Cynthia Finley was also one of Dr. Oz’s guests and described the importance of only flushing the 3Ps – pee, poo, and (toilet) paper. Toilets are not trash cans, Ms. Finley reminded the audience.
It's not possible for wet wipes to be "flushable" and "biodegradable" while still holding its form long enough to make it out the pack and wiped onto your butt without breaking. Toilet paper is flushable because it starts to disintegrate upon impact with moisture. Wet wipes, on the other hand, sit in moisture for months without disintegrating. So how can they be flushable AND biodegradable?
So what alternatives should you be using?
Dr. Oz recommended using a spray bottle on toilet paper to create a wet wipe. Or perhaps the new Booty Mint toilet paper spray?
Booty Mint is an after-you-go personal cleansing spray designed to be applied to toilet paper before you wipe. It is made with micellar cleansing water which helps remove dirt and other impurities from the skin.
Unlike wet wipes, our toilet paper spray won't clog your drain or your sewage system costing you and your neighbor taxpayer money. It's as simple as spraying a few sprays onto your toilet paper and wiping. It's as portable as carrying a small bottle of perfume, deodorant or cologne. Furthermore, it's going to save you a lot of money.
Booty Mint is super simple and easy to use. All you need to do is apply a couple of sprays to your toilet paper and then bam! You now have a flushable wipe. One of the coolest features of Booty Mint is that it comes equipped with a fine mist sprayer. This sprayer allows you to evenly moisten your toilet paper to avoid breakage. You will not have to worry about your toilet paper falling apart mid-wipe using Booty Mint.
