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.
ABOUT FRESH ASSIST®
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!
Flushable wipes are convenient and help people feel fresh and clean after using the restroom.
The average pack costs around $3.00 for 40 wipes. Sounds affordable enough but there are hidden costs to using these wipes that could end up costing you thousands of dollars.
Don’t let so called flushable wipes wreak havoc in your home or community. Switch to Fresh Assist® Spray, an eco-friendly, safe, and effective alternative to wipes that doesn’t clog pipes or harm sewer systems.
Life’s a Polyp reviews Fresh Assist spray. Living with GI isn’t easy and we’re happy we could help in any way. Thanks for the review and keep up the good work Jenny!
As an individual with chronic GI issues due to Short Bowel Syndrome (SBS), I’m always excited for anything that can help reduce the side effects of SBS. SBS causes frequent diarrhea that in turn can cause raw skin, itching, burning, and painful sensations. It’s common for individuals with SBS to utilize products such as flushable toilet wipes and creams to aid in hygiene and soothing the bothersome effects of SBS.
So when I was asked to review a similar product, I was happy to do so. I have been given this product as part of a product review through the Chronic Illness Bloggers network. Although the product was a gift, all opinions in this review remain my own and I was in no way influenced by the company.
I received Fresh Assist Spray, which reinvents the flushable toilet wipe by making available a conveniently sized, 2 ounce portable spray bottle with a solution to be sprayed on toilet paper prior to use after a bowel movement. I used the recommended spray amount with each use and found the solution to be a comfortable room temperature. I like using a spray bottle as one can spray the solution at their own discretion. This is not an option with conventional flushable toilet wipes, which can be too wet and cold. An additional benefit over wipes is the spray also reduces the amount of waste flushed with each bathroom use thereby being an easy, eco-friendly option.
Fresh Assist Spray comes in two fragrances: Soothing Lavender and Cooling Chamomile. I received Cooling Chamomile and was content with the subtle fragrance that was balanced well. Some products are too heavily scented leaving the user with a noticeable odor. This, however, was not the case with the spray. I was concerned about using a fragranced product on my sensitive skin but was pleasantly surprised that the scented product didn’t cause any burning sensations on my already sensitive, at times raw skin. To my surprise, the solution didn’t cause any burning or stinging sensations during any of the times of use no matter the condition of my skin.
I found Fresh Assist Spray to only require the recommended 2-3 sprays and that it effectively improved cleaning in a single wipe. I use a skin protectant cream regularly to combat raw skin from the effects of SBS and found the spray to cut through the cream without difficulty. The solution provided a cool, soothing sensation that reduced itch and soreness. I found the soothing effects of this spray to become addictive as using toilet paper without any spray was immediately uncomfortable and rougher feeling than with the spray. I used this spray with a 2-ply soft tissue which proved to absorb but not become disintegrated by the solution. I would caution using this spray with a 1-ply toilet paper as the tissue would not likely hold up to being sprayed. However, I did not experiment with 1-ply toilet paper so I can not fully speak to the integrity of 1-ply toilet paper with use of this spray.
Although I am heavily dependent on the use of a skin protectant cream with each bowel movement, the effectiveness of Fresh Assist Spray left me being able to reduce use of the skin protectant cream after every bathroom trip. I didn’t feel comfortable discontinuing use of the skin protectant cream altogether but I was able to reduce using the cream to after every 2-3 bathroom trips. Based on this, with regular use it is possible that this spray could aid in healing raw skin to the point that protectant creams are no longer required.
Based on my experience with Fresh Assist Spray, I would highly recommend use of this spray for anyone. It is particularly useful for individual with GI issues that cause painful skin conditions from frequent bowel movements. The spray bottles come in a reasonably priced single or two pack and lasts a relatively long time even with 3 sprays a use.
Thank you Jenny for the great review.

New Backside Cleanser is Environmentally Friendly, Safe, and Effective
RICHMOND, Va., Sept. 15, 2016 / — People of all ages have a new way to Get Clean in Between™ with the launch of Fresh Assist®, a unique cleansing, soothing, non-irritating product you simply spray on toilet paper to improve the backside cleaning process. It turns almost any toilet paper into a wipe that can be safely flushed, so it won’t cause damage to plumbing and septic systems or clog municipal sewage plants. Check out our single and two packs on Amazon.
Fresh Assist discovered that many people don’t know how to get cleaner after going number two. Watch our embedded video to see how we we’ve caught them on camera scratching away at their backsides. We call this UBI (Under-wiped Butt Itch) and Fresh Assist solves UBI by wetting toilet paper just enough to get much cleaner than just using regular toilet paper alone, thus eliminating the need to itch and adjust undergarments.
“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, but is proving to be especially helpful for people suffering from irritable bowel diseases such as Crohn’s and Colitis.
The product is also available for purchase on the Fresh Assist Website. It 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 $12.99 for a two-pack, $6.99 for singles. The product is available in select stores and Deskin hopes to secure more shelf space in environmentally friendly retailers in coming months.
Fresh Assist® founders Howard Deskin, CEO and Eric Deskin, VP, Business Development were interviewed on the Ask Dr. Nandi show, an Emmy award winning talk show focused on health and wellness.
In Part II of the interview they talk more about why they started Fresh Assist® as an alternative to flushable wipes, product benefits, and how it is helping people Get Clean In BetweenTM including people living with IBD such as Crohn’s disease.
