Use : take a sheet and wipe as you would with toilet paper, but you can still moisten the sheet for more comfort. They can be used to clean everything, but you can start simply with the urine, it's a change in your habits and sometimes you have to go easy.
You can put the used leaves in a box or bag and close it, you can spray a little vinegar and tea tree EO on it if you wish.
Washing : you can pre-wash them with water and soap after use, or place them in the washing machine directly. Wash at 30°C with the rest of the laundry, you can soak in a basin before washing in the machine.
Is it comfortable ? Personally I find that yes oh yes ! it is very soft, you can humidify it, there are no small pieces of paper that tear and remain on the skin, you pollute less and you are better wiped.
Is it really ecological ? yes, it is accepted that almost 30,000 trees are felled every day to end up in toilet paper and it takes about 140 litres of water to make a roll. The amount of water used here to rinse its sheets is really negligible compared to the manufacture of disposable toilet paper, and washing them in the washing machine with the rest of the laundry, given the size of the sheets it does not consume more.
How many sheets do I need ? Unlike toilet paper, which tends to be doubled, tripled or even quadrupled, here, only one sheet is sufficient per visit to the toilet (see two), if you have a sink next to your toilet you can also rinse after the first visit and iron with the refreshed sheet.
Is it dirty or unhygienic ? No. The sheets are washed, you can pre-wash them, rinse them after use too. The cleaning cloth is an organic cotton sponge, gentle on the skin and the environment. You can also add a few drops of tea tree EO to the machine, or spray it mixed with vinegar after use. You can also spray the wipes by drying them with the same essential oil. Tea tree EO is a major broad spectrum antibacterial, antifungal, anti-inflammatory and anti-parasitic agent among others.
Storage : Several "storage" options are available. You can choose the neutral sheets, which you place one on top of the other in a box or roll staggered to have the "paper roll" effect, you can choose to hang them, then in this case the elastic solution may suit you, or you can choose the pressures, practical for the passage in machine, you make a beautiful garland, you throw in the drum, you take your garland out of the machine and you can hang it as it is to make it dry and you then roll the sheets always hung in a beautiful roll ready for use.
