Most people know that flushable wipes should not be flushed. If you know, you know. You know they can contain plastic fibers. You know they don't biodegrade like toilet paper. You know they can and do damage pluming, septic, and sewer systems to the tune of more than $1,000,000,000 a year.

Now, if you don't know, there are plenty of places to learn. Search "fatberg," for example, but maybe shade your eyes from the gross images of 130-ton sewer clogs. Learn that "flushable" doesn't mean "should be flushed" or "safe to flush." Learn that every dollar you spend on flushable wipes causes 33 cents of damage to your home plumbing or community's waste treatment systems.

If you need an even clearer sign that wipes should never be flushed, we found an actual, literal sign. A customer sent us this photo from a museum in Maine. Clearly the museum has suffered through the repair bills of a septic system fouled and clogged by %@$&*# wipes. How bad did it get for them to be driven to post a sign to not use the damn things? How bad does it have to get – how close to home does it have to hit – for people to realize how bad wipes are?

The UnWipe gives everyone a clear, clean, safe alternative. It works by transforming your own toilet paper to clean better and litter never. Use it anywhere you go, including all the museums in Maine!
