May 19th Is World IBD Day

May 19th is World IBD Day to raise awareness of inflammatory bowel diseases including irritable bowel syndrome, Chron’s disease and ulcerative colitis.

More than 5 million people worldwide live with these conditions. Chron’s disease and ulcerative colitis affect the GI tract and those living with IBD may experience persistent diarrhea, rectal bleeding, an urgent need to move bowels, abdominal cramps and pain or constipation. Fever, loss of appetite and weight loss may also be present.

Crohn’s is a chronic disease where patients may experience times with no symptoms and others when the disease flares up, symptoms return, and they need to spend more time in the bathroom than they would like.  In addition to abdominal cramps and bloating, irritation from wiping can be painful.

IMG_0021Getting relief from Chron’s and UC may include medication, a change in lifestyle or diet, and in some cases, surgery.  For help for at home, at work, or on the go a few sprays of Fresh Assist® on regular toilet paper can provide soothing relief when wiping.

If you think you might be suffering from IBD, contact your medical provider for an evaluation and to develop a treatment plan.

The best alternative to wet wipes

IMG_0021

You may have heard that Fresh Assist® is a great new product that you can use to Get Clean In Between™. The concept is simple, just spray on toilet paper and wipe your backside normally. Fresh Assist® essentially turns your toilet paper into a wipe!

If you have been using wet wipes or thinking about buying some for personal use, let’s take a quick look at a few of the differences between wet wipes and Fresh Assist®.

The cost of using wet wipes

In recent years, adults who like to stay fresh began using baby wipes to clean up after doing their business. The wipe companies noticed this trend and began introducing “personal” wipe products.

These products are very popular. But have you ever wondered how much it actually costs to get fresh? Here is a breakout of the cost per use of some popular wet wipe categories:

Brand Cost per Use
Generic wipes, 84 for $3.34 .04¢/1 wipe per use
Travel wipes, 42 for $3 .07¢/1 wipe pre use
Adult branded wipes 30 for $9 .30¢/1 wipe pre use
Fresh Assist® 2 oz. for $6.99 .06¢/3 sprays per use

As you can clearly see, using Fresh Assist® spray to get clean and fresh is a great value at only 06¢ per use compared to adult branded and travel wipes and very comparable to bulk generic wet wipes.

Flushable wipes cause damage to water treatment systems, resulting in higher water bills for all.

But the savings may not end there. According to The Guardian, “Don’t believe the label ‘flushable’: disposable wipes clog sewers around the world”. Here is a great video showing the damage caused by personal wipes because they do not break down in water:

Even if your personal plumbing survives the wipes, the damage to the municipal water plant will end up costing everyone via higher water bills.

Since Fresh Assist® sprays right on toilet paper, it does not cause any harm to plumbing or water systems making it the eco-friendly choice.

Fresh Assist® was produced with portability in mind

But Fresh Assist® is not just a great value and eco-friendly. It comes in a 2 oz. bottle so it fits easily into your pocket, purse, briefcase or travel bag. You can discreetly take it with you on bathroom breaks while at the office or when you are away from home.

And, the 2 oz. bottle makes it FAA compliant so you can take it with you anywhere you go!

Fresh Assist® is made in the USA

Ever worry about putting something on your body that was not made in the USA? We do too. Fresh Assist® is proudly made and manufactured in the USA.

Our product was tested in an FDA lab and is processed in an FDA approved processing facility so you can trust that it meets required national standards.

We get that you want to stay clean and fresh, we do to. Consider switching to Fresh Assist® spray. It is the best value in the category, will not harm your plumbing or water treatment systems, is portable and discreet, and is processed in an FDA approved facility. Fresh Assist® is a new, safe and economical way to Get Clean In Between.

How to safely use a public toilet

Clean me!

Have you ever wondered how to safely use a public toilet? I know I have. It turns out that public toilet safety is a bit different than I thought.

For years I have covered the seat using toilet paper or seat covers, if available. I thought that was enough to avoid picking up germs. Sure there are hundreds of thousands of germs on the toilet seat. But unless you have an open cut or sore on your backside, it is not highly likely that the germ village on your toilet seat will invade your privates.

However, what most people do not know is that flushing a toilet sprays microscopic particles into the air! Yuck!! This inner toilet mist can coat everything including the parts of the stall that you come in contact with the most including the toilet paper roll. And touching things close to the toilet covered in spray can quickly spread to other things like the door latch.

So here is a quick list of do’s and don’t for public toilet safety:

Do:

  1. Cover the toilet seat with toilet paper or a seat cover or just wipe the seat off with toilet paper. Remember to discard the next available seat cover and any directly exposed toilet paper since those have been “misted” by the prior user.
  2. If you are a Fresh Assist user you can spray some on the seat and wipe it off with fresh toilet paper.
  3. Turn your back to the toilet or exit the stall immediately upon flushing to avoid the spray zone!
  4. Wash hands thoroughly with soap and the hottest water available.

Don’t:

  1. When flushing the toilet, don’t touch the flusher with your hands. Use some toilet paper to cover the handle. And never sit or stand directly over the bowl when flushing!!
  2. Don’t touch the door latch when exiting the stall. Use toilet paper to cover the latch.
  3. Try not to touch the sink handles with your bare hands. Remember, someone before you just touched the handle after exiting a stall and may have left contaminants. Use a paper towel or toilet paper to turn the water on and off.
  4. Don’t grab the door handle to exit the bathroom. Some people don’t wash at all so the bathroom door handle is the next thing they touch after doing their business. Use another paper towel to open the door.

I may have grossed some of you out, but now that we all know what really goes on in a bathroom stall, we can all stay a little cleaner and a little safer. Oh and remember to dump all the extra paper you used to get out of the bathroom safely!

And as for keeping your privates clean, try using Fresh Assist®. It is the new way to get clean and fresh. Just spray on TP, wipe and flush! It turns your TP into a wipe. Try it now in Soothing Lavender or Cooling Chamomile.
