Synopsis: Bio-degradable, flushable, all-natural cleaning wipes to give you that ready-to-go sexy feeling.
Our Review: So, you're probably wondering why something as humble as a personal wipe gets the royal review treatment. Well, other than the fact they are friggin' awesome, let us explain how this humble little bit of moist goodness saved our asses (and more) - literally - at a certain festival in the Nevada desert in 2011.
First, however, a little description of the product in question, The Swipes Lovin' Wipe is a personal wipe for your intimate areas, though by no means is it confined to this task. Heck, you can use it pretty much anywhere; your face, hands, body; you can even clean a dish with it if you're in a pinch. The Swipe comes in a pack with 41 additional soldiers, ready to spring into action whenever you need. It's made with all-natural, bio-degradable materials, is safe for septic systems, is flushable, comes in cucumber and unscented flavors, and is even manufactured right here in the US. Even the packaging is made to have as little impact on the environment as possible (their website touts they use 70% less raw materials than similar packaging).
Now, in particular, why have we fallen in love with Swipes and carry them everywhere?
Let us take you to the afforementioned "festival in the Nevada desert," aka Burning Man. For those unfamiliar with this event, each year, we drive 600 miles from our home in Los Angeles to live alongside 50,000 of our favorite people to party, create art, dance, share, and generally enjoy life with. What we do not enjoy at this amazing gathering are dust and porta potties, not necessarily in that order. In fact, one of our least favorite activities, period, is trudging to one of these grotesque "poop saunas" and doing our "business" after few hours of said porta potty sitting under the 100 degree sunshine all day long. Added to this misery is the fact they do NOT allow the use of baby wipes due to their propensity to clog up the intake hoses of the cleaning crew's machinery. This leaves us with a decidedly UNclean feeling throughout the week that is, unfortunately, usually solved by flaunting the no-baby wipes rule.
Our second least favorite aspect of Burning Man is the incessant DUST. The playa surface is composed of extremely fine, prehistoric alkaline that takes flight when even slightly disturbed. Take 50,000 people, vehicles, staff, and art projects and what you get is a constant dust storm that coats everyone and everything within a hundred miles. Adding the afforementioned heat only makes things worse, as you now mix in a healthy dose of sweat with the never-ending dust, mingling the two together in a most unappetizing stew of yuckiness. Predictably, being intimate in such an environment is definitely not the first thing that crosses our minds.
Aaaah, but wait. Was that a pack of Swipes Lovin' Wipes that made its way into our baggage at Burning Man 2011? A pack of wipes that not only can be safely used in the porta potties to give us that clean, fresh feeling all week, but also to clean out the crevices of dust and funk to make intimacy palatable on the playa (not to mention being put into service cleaning a dish here and there)? Why yes, we answer emphatically! To the rescue came this humble little piece of eco-friendly heaven, forever ingratiating itself into our daily routine at Burning Man and continuing back in the real world, specifically perched atop our headboard for quick use when needed. Baby wipes, we banish you forever!
So there you have it; the Swipe Lovin' Wipe. Royal treatment for treatment royal.
