No, non sono gli scarafaggi. E la parola chiave è “bidet”.
Come riporta il Guardian, anche in Australia esiste il problema dei fatberg. La notizia che da’ origine all’articolo è che la Australian Competition and Consumer Commission e la azienda che gestisce le fognature a Sidney hanno portato in giudizio la Kleenex, accusandola di etichettare come “flushable” le salviette umide che produce, e il giudice ha dato loro torto.
According to Sydney Water, the popularity of wipes comes from a surprising source – and they blame the actor Will Smith. “We did quite an extensive survey and it was quite interesting, the major user group of flushable wipes were young males, 15-29. One of the theories behind that was the rap artist and movie star Will Smith was interviewed and he said to men that they ‘weren’t really clean’ if they were only using toilet paper, they needed to use wipes.” Smith told the BBC in 2017 that using wet wipes was “special and incredible”. “Will Smith, we hate you for what you said”.
