Wet wipes have been the go to helper for most people.

Whether to wipe the babies bum, remove makeup, clean sticky fingers or what ever. There is a purpose made, suitably scented wet wipe for the job.

How did we ever manage with just a simple damp cloth, and a little bit of soap and water.

Of course, the damp cloth was reusable after a quick trip in the washing, but our go to wet wipes end up in toilets clogging water purification plants, land fill, and..... the oceans. Polluting the planet at a horrendous rate. They are from memory, at least 85% PLASTIC, they will not biodegrade, they will become nano plastics and get fed back to you via the food chain.

How dumb are we.

My house has an on site septic system and those things clog it up and I have to deal with it.  Guests carry the cursed things in their purses to wipe their precious asses where ever they go.  I have little note cards in the bathroom:

A Note to Our Guests: This house is served with an on site septic system. Please flush no products other than toilet paper.

Do you think this stops them?  WTF am I supposed to do?  Monitor them?  Sheesh.
