As popularity of personal care wipes continues to increase, so does the volume of inappropriate wipes being flushed down the toilet. Vernacare are tackling this issue head-on with our new improved Conti Flushable Wipes.
Put to the test
Despite many alternative brands making misleading claims, our wipes have been subjected to the latest EDANA GD4 dispersibility testing; a new standard that only came into effect in October 2018.
Providing an all-in-one time-saving solution for continence care and everyday personal cleansing, the wipes also possess the added convenience of quick, safe and hygienic disposal in either a toilet or macerator.
We see a lot of wipes that are classified as ‘flushable by size’ with the material itself not actually being suitable to be disposed of down the drain. Unfortunately a lot of people’s attitudes is that if the wipe is gone after they flush, then it’s someone else’s problem. Conti® Flushable Wipes are different however.
Did you know?
The nationwide cost of unblocking the sewers maintained by the water and sewerage companies is now estimated at £88 million a year, with claims that three-quarters of sewer blockages are caused by flushing inappropriate wipes.
We’re finding that our dry and wet wipes are increasing in popularity following recent media coverage around ‘fatbergs’. As our wipes are 100% plastic-free, they’re not only kind to the skin, but also the environment.
