Flushable toilet wipes that wipe well and flush fine (6 we’ve tried & love)

Published by Finn Hayden

It's 2024, and despite huge advancements in various areas of Western society, some parts of our lives still feel decidedly old-fashioned. We'd put wiping our bums into this category - not only is it terrible for the environment given how much toilet paper people need to wipe properly, but it's also ineffective. If you got your hands covered in mud, you wouldn't want to use toilet paper to clean your hands, you'd want something like a wet wipe.

Luckily, flushable toilet wipes are really starting to grow in popularity here in the UK. Similar to an air fryer, we think flushable toilet wipes are the type of product which you don't fully understand until you've tried them. And once you've tried them, you realise how good they are and there is no going back to normal toilet paper.

There are lots of options when it comes to flushable toilet wipes, so we thought it would be useful to round up the best flushable toilet wipes that you can buy in the UK.

Before we get into this guide, it's worth mentioning that any flushable toilet wipes that you use should be “Fine to Flush” certified by Water UK, and all of the toilet wipes we've included in this guide have this certification. But even still, you should flush all of these wipes very carefully one wipe at a time.

Now let's get into the guide:

Nice 'N CLEAN SecureFlush Wipes

The main appeal of the SecureFlush wipes is that they break apart really quickly, and according to the Nice 'N CLEAN team, these toilet wipes will break apart even faster than toilet paper, making them very safe to flush. We like the fragrance free variety of these toilet wipes, which are made using Vitamin E and almond milk to help soothe your skin and make you feel extra clean. These toilet wipes are also biodegradable. You can buy 480 of these wipes for less than £20, learn more and buy them here - amazon.co.uk

Natracare Safe To Flush moist tissues

The Natracare Safe To Flush moist tissues are made from 100% paper without the use of any plastic.

The formula contains aloe vera and witch hazel, both of which cleanse and leave you feeling fresh. These wipes will also biodegrade in both marine and freshwater, making them really safe to flush. Not only are these toilet wipes Fine to Flush certified by Water UK, but they're also IWSFG certified flushable. Learn more and buy them here - ocado.com

Luxury Soft by Tesco

A number of the major UK supermarkets have now introduced an own-brand range of flushable toilet wipes, and Tesco was one of the first supermarkets to introduce this type of product. The Luxury Soft wipes from Tesco are free from fragrance and pH-balanced, and although they're not 100% made from paper, they do have the Fine To Flush certification.

Sainsbury's Super Soft

Another of the major UK supermarkets which has a great range of flushable toilet wipes is Sainsbury's, and we'd say these are even better than the toilet wipes from Tesco - they're made from 100% plant-based fibres which are sourced from responsibly managed forests, and they're also free from fragrance and pH balanced.
