THERE’S nothing better than the first shower after surviving a four-night festival.
But in the meantime, one shopper has found a solution, and has shared her discovery online.
The shopper shared her find on Facebook[/caption]
Taking to the Extreme Couponing and Bargains Facebook group, one woman explained she’d found some towel-sized body wipes in Home Bargains – but not everyone is happy about them.
Posting an image of the 79p pack, she wrote: “Found these in Home Bargains, thought they were perfect for camping/festivals or beach days.”
The pack contains two body wipes over a metre long in length each.
Enriched with moisturiser, they promise to “freshen your entire body when you can’t shower”.
Several users said they would be perfect for Glastonbury[/caption]
And other shoppers couldn’t get enough of the bargain wipes, with several noting they’d be “perfect for Glastonbury” and tagging their festival-goer mates.
Others thought they would be great for kids, while another explained they had used them during a hospital stay.
“They’re so handy when your lad gets caked in mud and you’re miles from home,” said one.
Another wrote: “These are so good… I bought some to use in hospital, cut them up and put them in a plastic container.”
One gave them a rave review[/caption]
Others said they were good with kids[/caption]
But despite the positive response, some users were furious at the post, with several commenting on the impact on the environment.
One wrote: “Did you not watch War On Plastic?
“Don’t you realise the effects these are having on our planet?!
“These have been proven to be 84 per cent plastic!
“They don’t break down, they will always exist.
“Don’t buy them.”
Many users were concerned over the effect on the environment[/caption]
Others agreed, with another commenting: “Maybe a flannel and bottled water would be 1. so much cleaner! And 2. better for the environment.”
Another pointed users in the direction of reusable wipes, commenting: “If anyone actually gives a s***. You can buy reusable wipes from cheeky wipes UK, babipur.co.uk, yesbebe.co.uk, Etsy and many [independent] brands.
“They are more expensive but you won’t be replacing them. There’s also many other products you can buy.
“Safety razors, bamboo tooth brushes, metal water bottles, reusable sanitary towels, reusable nappies, beautiful ethical clothing for kids.”
The post has sparked so much debate, moderators have now disabled the comments section.
