I discovered that the hard way a few years ago.

Keep a small spray bottle on the back of your toilet with 1/2 witch hazel, 1/2 water. A few drops of baby shampoo, and a few drops of baby oil. Shake and spray on your toilet paper as used or needed.
 
2014-03-02 08:17:41 PM
The damn things dry out too quickly anyway.  The first few work great, then you're left with a stack of construction paper.
 
2014-03-02 08:35:17 PM
I'll keep flushing random things to see what we can use as a replacement.

Good to the last wipe.

I already subscribe to DSC, so getting this as an addon is just a plus.

Or do what I do, just dump in your used motor oil to get the works going.  Hell I don't pay for sewage not to use it!

These things are at least as flushable as the pet alligator I didn't want anymore.

Well, duh.  If Charmin will clog your pipes, it's pretty obvious those cloth-like wipes will, too.

You can have my flushable wipes when you pry them from my warm, stinky hemorrhoids.

When Mrs. Samurai and I remodel our bathroom, we are installing a goddamn bidet. We as a species need to acknowledge that good plumbing and superior bum-cleansing technology is a necessity in the 21st century.

That is why I wipe my ass with dead goldfish.  Occasionally a nutritionist if the next door neighbor was no looking when backing out of her driveway again.

THIS!

I wish I could afford the awesome Toto Japanese toilet seats that have warm spray, hot air dry, refresh the air and play music to cover the farts.  Unfortunately I'll probably end up with this one instead:

It's kind of a nice all-in-one unit to save space.. not sure how often I'd use the tablet holder tho.. can't imagine people wanting to use the ipad while pooping.

I gave up the wipes for a while, but I had to start using them again

I notice signs in the thrift stores about not flushing paper towels. I'm left curious about that one.

In civilized countries, they have this thing you see on the left.  No "flushable" wipes needed.

Dude, I've had a laptop in the bathroom since wireless went consumer.  How else can you read the news on the can?

Confabulat: I discovered that the hard way a few years ago.


Our septic system had a Gillette razor handle from the 70's stuck in it, and when my wife cleaned the bathroom with "flushable cleaning wipes" after we bought the house, they wrapped around that handle and plugged the whole damn thing up.  We had to dig up part of the driveway to replace the line out to the septic tank.  I did learn that during WWII they used cardboard pipes soaked in pine tar for plumbing lines because metal was at such a premium.

It's all nice, slick PVC now.

Spraying water up your asshole doesn't sound civilized to me.  And you still need to dry off.

I don't understand what the big allure of wet wipes is. After you use a couple you then have to dry. Then you're right back to regular toilet paper.

Why not skip the middle man and go right to the tp?

I don't know if I have just have messier poops or if our whole damn toilet/plumbing system was made for people who don't wipe properly.

I use the neck of a live goose.

Flushing them is hell, but the downy wipe is pure heaven.

2014-03-03 12:13:23 AM
I do not understand bidets. Unless that thing sprays a pretty damn high-pressure stream into my crack, there's no way it'll get anywhere near clean enough.

I normally use toilet paper, but baby wipes are goddamn luxurious on my ass. And my toilet has no issues flushing them. Goddamn do I love industrial-strength plumbing!

You can just throw the wipes away in the trash, man. Do not flush them. 

You'd be like them women folks who clog the pipes downing their lady hygiene products.  Then act all coy when confronted with the facts. "They're not my pipes! Tee hee, the business will be okay!"

/seriously don't flush that shiat down the toilet.
//that's what waste bins are for.

2014-03-03 12:18:27 AM
I've been to a few countries where they ask you to put used toilet paper in a bin because the plumbing can't handle it. I use the paper sparingly and flush it. I don't want to stay in a room with a garbage can full of shiatty paper.

2014-03-03 12:24:29 AM
I'm willing to bet multiple wipes were used by this guy.  My rule, wipe a couple times with the regular stuff, finish off with a flushable wet wipe.  If you're still in need of wiping after that, jump in the shower...and you seriously need to change your diet
