Earlier this month, I was invited to an Andrex® event but unfortunately I could not make it. They have kindly sent me this informative new health report that revealed an estimated 15 million Brits are unsure how to clean themselves properly after going to the toilet.
The comprehensive study into the bathroom habits of the nation reported the alarming statistic that almost a third of Brits (29%) felt they could be cleaner after going to the toilet. Despite 97% saying that being and feeling clean is important to them, the report revealed that 37% are wiping themselves incorrectly(15% wipe back to front, 22% wipe both ways).
The report discovered that not feeling clean after going to the toilet can have a major impact on how we feel. However the positives of being clean were also clear, with people saying it helped them feel more fresh, confident, and happy.
In response to the research findings, Andrex® has developed the Andrex® Clean Routine in partnership with healthcare professionals. It’s a simple five-step routine designed to improve everyone’s understanding of the best way to clean themselves, and also to help people feel cleaner after going to the toilet.
As an ex-nurse, I know how important hand wash is and I always make it a habit to get my children to clean with moist toilet tissue and wash their hands. Using moist toilet tissue is always part of our routine. We are very familiar with it and would also encourage others to use them to help feeling cleaner. We have been provided a couple of various sizes of moist toilet tissue packets for review. In fact, we have been using the Andrex ® brand for years. They are thick moist tissue that are gentle to the skin. Using one to two tissues are more than enough for each clean.
Hope this five step clean routine helps you to understand how to clean properly.
