New gel makes toilet paper emulate wet wipes, manufacturer says
CANTON, Mass. — A new product is designed to make toilet paper mimic wet wipes while being easier to flush.
Fresh Dab, introduced by a company of the same name, is a gel applied to toilet paper, which the company said would allow for better removal of residue than toilet paper alone, while also allowing toilet paper to break down as it normally would, unlike wet wipes that can clog sewage and septic systems.
The gel is made from natural ingredients often used to treat and clean skin, such as aloe vera, witch hazel, willow and rooibos.
The gel is available at a list price of $7.99 in 8-oz. bottles, each containing up to 200 dabs.
