When shopping for moist toilet tissue, features you can choose from include:

Flushability: This may seem like it goes without saying, but it’s important to point out that not all moist toilet tissue brands are flushable. Make sure to check the packaging to confirm they can be flushed down the toilet. In general, it’s recommended that you flush only one wet wipe at a time.

Scented or unscented: Most people like wet wipes with a light clean fragrance. If not, there are many fragrance-free and unscented options available.

Contains alcohol or alcohol-free: Some brands contain alcohol, while others are alcohol-free. There are pros and cons to alcohol so find the solution that best suits your needs.

Smooth/untextured or textured: Textured wipes may provide a more effective clean, while a smooth wipe may be more gentle and soothing, depending on your skin sensitivity.

Wipe size: The dimensions and thickness of flushable wipes vary by brand.

Ply: Similar to toilet paper, flushable wipes come in single-ply or double-ply.

Pack size: The number of wipes vary in each pack. It’s common for one brand to carry multiple pack sizes. If you want to carry some in your purse for trips to the restroom while out shopping, at the gym, or at work, lower counts are ideal. Higher count sizes are great to have at home in each restroom.

Packaging type: Flushable wipes come in soft, resealable plastic packages and rigid plastic containers with pop-up lids. Most are designed to easily open and close with one
