No way! We were well aware that water just doesn’t work without tearing toilet paper, so we formulated Pristine with this in mind. Pristine allows you to moisten toilet paper to provide an effective cleanse without destroying it. We selected a fine mist sprayer to ensure that the mixture is spread evenly across the toilet paper (and is not too concentrated in one location). The ingredients also work to prevent complete saturation of the toilet paper – instead, a portion of the ingredients sit atop the toilet paper so that the toilet paper glides across the skin. We recommend double-folding the toilet paper (especially if you are using extra thin toilet paper, such as airport toilet paper) just in case.
