We launched FinalWipe on Kickstarter on March 31 and hit our funding goal in less than 8 hours. We are honestly blown away by the support!
Over the past few days we have also received some incredible feedback and very thoughtful questions. We thought it’d be helpful to do a quick Q&A session with you about FinalWipe so we can all stop flushing our forests and start sanitizing sustainably!
Is FinalWipe real?
Yes, FinalWipe is real! Although the concept began as part of an April Fool’s joke we quickly realized that FinalWipe could actually be the solution to a greater issue.
So...what is FinalWipe?
FinalWipe is a multipurpose reusable wipe that is made from soft, highly absorbent, antimicrobial material infused with silver. FinalWipe comes in two sizes—FinalWipe Home and FinalWipe Travel—so you can sanitize sustainably whether you’re at home or on the go!
Ok then, how does FinalWipe work?
FinalWipe can be used wet or dry! When used wet, in conjunction with the CleanTab solution, it acts like a reusable sanitizing wipe. Simply combine one CleanTab with water in the FinalWipe container, let it dissolve, and soak the FinalWipes. After your wipes are saturated, they can be used to sanitize a variety of surfaces. Launder FinalWipes with like colors.
Can FinalWipe actually be used as toilet paper or like a baby wipe?
FinalWipe can be used as a replacement for toilet paper however only after #1 or when used in conjunction with a bidet (unless you’re a mermaid). We love FinalWipe for bidet users because it completely addresses “wet tush syndrome.” This condition commonly occurs when a bidet user makes use of toilet paper to dry their tush after spritzing, which ultimately causes little clumps of TP to stick to the skin.
What does "infused with silver" mean?
FinalWipe will be made from bamboo fiber infused with silver nanoparticles. The silver ions inhibit bacterial growth, help control odors and render FinalWipe antimicrobial.
How durable is FinalWipe?
The wipes are made from high-quality bamboo microfiber, so depending on usage, they will have a life expectancy similar to that of a dish towel.
How many times can FinalWipe be used before it requires laundering and re-soaking in the solution?
This is truly determined by user preference and depends on what kind of mess you are cleaning up. We do recommend washing your FinalWipe immediately after any potty related messes!
What are the CleanTabs made of?
We are currently finalizing the formula for our CleanTabs, but rest assured they will be non-toxic, environmentally friendly, safe for everyone, and Mama Earth approved! We will release further information on the sanitizing properties along with the list of ingredients very soon.
Wait... what about FinalFork?
It’s still coming! We’ve been working hard to develop FinalFork. However, it didn’t feel right to launch a reusable fork designed for travel at a time when no one is traveling, due to social distancing and travel bans.
