We Stopped Selling Fresh Assist

As many of you know, about three years ago my brother Eric Deskin and I launched Fresh Assist, an eco-friendly spray that you use to moisten the TP to use after going #2. We positioned the brand as an earth-friendly alternative to so-called “flushable” pre-moistened wipes, which in fact end up clogging septic systems and wreaking well-documented and costly havoc on municipal waste and water treatment facilities. Some municipalities have gone so far as to ban these wipes.

While we’ve managed to build a loyal customer base through Amazon and our company website, we halted online sales at year-end as we determine the next phase.

In the meantime, it’s been an amazing ride, and we have learned a ton about product manufacturing, branding, marketing, selling on Amazon, video production and working with family. (Happy to report that Eric and I are still brothers).

Have a great 2019, and if you ordered your last batch of Fresh Assist® to Get Clean In Between™, we thank you from the bottom of our, well you know!

Stuff Their Stockings, Not Their Pipes, With Fresh Assist® Backside Cleanser

Get Clean In Between™ with New Soothing Spray Cleanser, a great Holiday Gift!

RICHMOND, Va., Dec. 5, 2016 /PRNewswire/ — People of all ages have a new way to help their family and friends Get Clean in Between™ this holiday season with Fresh Assist®, a unique fragrant, cleansing, soothing product you simply spray on toilet paper to improve the backside cleaning process. Fresh Assist turns almost any toilet paper into a cleansing wipe that can be safely flushed, so it won’t cause damage to plumbing and septic systems or clog municipal sewage plants. The product is available for purchase on Amazon or the Fresh Assist Website.

“It’s a lot easier to get a cleaner backside with moistened toilet paper and I was frustrated with the current products on the market,” said Howard Deskin, Founder and CEO of Fresh Assist. “My family started using baby wipes and then flushable wipes a few years ago to get clean.  Our bathroom toilets kept getting clogged and the culprit was always a stuck wipe or two. I decided there had to be a better way.”

It took Deskin a few years to perfect the formula, and needless to say many uncomfortable experiments. Fresh Assist® spray is recommended for any age, and is also proving to be especially helpful for people suffering from irritable bowel diseases such as Crohn’s and Colitis.

The product comes in two scents, Soothing Lavender and Cooling Chamomile — in a single 2-ounce bottle or a 2 pack.  On average a bottle will last a regular user for a month or more.  Fresh Assist® retails for $10.79 for a two-pack (use TWOFRESH coupon code), $6.79 for singles.


Fresh Assist® helps you Get Clean In Between™. It’s an environmentally friendly, cleansing, soothing, non-irritating and proprietary product that is sprayed on toilet tissue to improve the backside cleaning process after going number two. It’s a unique and innovative alternative to “flushable” wet (moist) wipes that many adults and kids are now using. With a few spritzes of Fresh Assist®, getting clean is a lot easier (and better for the environment). You just spray it on your favorite brand of TP and instantly improve your wipe!
