Charmin calls it Wet Wipes. The Dollar Shave Club call theirs the One Wipe Charlie. Huggies named it Baby Wipes.
We’re sure most of you have used wet wipes in the past. Whether it was to clean your hands or remove dirt, the invention of such a convenient product is fantastic. However, how many of you thought of using this versatile product on the planet Uranus?
Ah Ha! I bet half of you had a light bulb go off on your head when I mention the word “Uranus”. Indeed, the next big thing is wet wipes for your delicate bottom. There is nothing NEW about it you say? Well, you are correct… For as long as I can remember, I’ve been seeing baby wipe commercials and have personally seen the product in action. Nobody ever said you had to reinvent the wheel to be the next Einstein. The R&D team at Cottonelle clearly understood that phrase when they launched their Cottonelle Fresh Care flushable wipes.
Before we get any further, I’m sure some of you are scratching your heads (or ass) and asking why do we need to use wet wipes to clean our butt when there is toilet paper. The answer to that question is simple, but we don’t expect the average cavemen to understand this concept. Ever since we were babies, our delicate bun was meticulously taken care of by our parents. A skin as soft and gentle as that of a baby’s should be kept prestined and untainted by the various elements of nature. As we grow with age, it is our right and responsibility to ensure we continue to take good care of ourselves and our body, our asses included!
When I stumbled upon Dollar Shave Club’s second viral video: One Wipe Charle, I wanted to try the product. Admit it, I wasn’t the only one. Some of you reading this article had the same thought in mind, if not, already used the product… Lucky for me, I got my hands on a similar product made by Cottonelle. Cottonelle is a brand under Kimberly-clark that specializes in the toilet paper business… so they are already the pioneers in the Uranus exploration.
The Cottonelle Fresh Care flushable packet comes in a 42 sheet tub of wipes that costs roughly $3.00 USD and can be found in the toilet paper section of your local stores. The physical look and feel of the packaging is quite attractive, considering it’s just wet wipes. What you get is a solid white, plastic tub shaped like a treasure chest. But they also come in various colors and designs. Aside from the tub, the product is also available for purchase as individual refill packs and cases. At the top of the tub you get a rectangular lid that can be easily flipped open or snapped seal the tub. The sheets are coated with Aloe, Vitamin E and various other moisturizing ingredients… At this point I’m just going to stop. The best way to describe this product is to take it with me to the “office” and put it in action. Stay tuned!
