Wallypop Toilet Wipes

This must have been what people used back in the days before the invention of toilet paper. You just wipe and then throw the soiled cloth into a bag, ready to be taken out to the laundry. One benefit is that it allows you to wipe with a wet cloth, which gets you a lot cleaner. However, it would seem to me that it's going to substantially increase the amount of laundry you've got to do (since you want to keep the soiled wipes separate from the rest of your laundry). So would they really save you money, or be any better for the environment?

Thanks to Prof. Music for the contribution.

"Shake, scrape, swish, or squirt off anything you don't want in your laundry, and then toss the wipe into the pail or container. (Personally speaking, we just wipe and toss in the pail. Our wipes have minimal staining.)"

Great, now you have to rinse before you launder. Does 'minimanl staining' mean "yes, you will have a dirty ass, but the environment is worth it?" Does anyone out there haul these to the laundromat and scrub them down in front of everyone?

I think with the economy tanking we will be seeing a lot more items like this coming back into use.

Just a bit east of here and a dab south the left hand, a bowl of water, and a splash of toilet water serve.

In fact, the 1st time I was in Turkey (mid 60s) it was a good idea to carry a bit of TP with you while on liberty. Then you had to get over the stigma of having some little old lady standing by to assist you and sprinkle your hands with toilet water upon your completion.

Hey, whatever works for you. Why not just get a bidet? Nothing to launder and probably less water usage in the long run.
