How much are you wiping after you go #2? If the answe is zero, you have experiened a Ghost Wipe. Good for you! The number of times you wipe is related to your bowel health. Are you looking for no wipes after you go #2? Read on friends.
What Is A Ghost Wipe?
If you are getting enough fiber, you might be lucky enough to experience the Ghost Wipe. What is the Ghost Wipe? We’re glad you asked. Unlike being ghosted, experiencing a Ghost Wipe is a great thing. A Ghost Wipe is a phenomenon that when you wipe your butt after pooping, there is nothing on the toilet paper. Spooky? Not so much, but delightful.
What If Your Wipes Aren't Ghost Wipes?
Contrary to what those Charmin commercials want you to think, how many times you wipe has less to do with your toilet paper and more to do with your poop! There are plenty of different causes of too much wiping, including:
- Lack of fiber
- Too much sugar
- A food allergy or intolerance
- Overabundance of laxatives
- Emotional states, like stress or anxiety
- Irritable bowel syndrome
- Celiac disease
A long list but one of the easiest fixes that you can start today is at the top: more fiber. The number of times you need to wipe is directly related to how much fiber you’re getting. If you’re like most people, you aren’t getting nearly enough of our favorite f-word: fiber.
Luckily, more and more people are catching on to the fact that 95% of Americans aren’t getting enough fiber in their daily diets. This is a bummer because fiber is fabulous and has a ton of amazing benefits. Justice for fiber!
Eyes on the Prize: How to Ghost Wipe
The key to bulking up your stool (and preventing endless wiping) is fiber. If you want to prevent the never-ending wipe, you need more fiber in your diet. We have several ways to fix this issue:
Eat More Fiber (Obviously)
Simple enough, right? While getting enough fiber through your diet is ideal, it’s extremely difficult for most of us to eat enough in a day that packs enough fiber punch. That’s where an all-natural delicious fiber supplement like Bonny enters the picture.
Fiber basically acts like a broom that goes through your digestive tract and scrubs it clean, then deposits everything neatly outside your body in a perfectly-packed log of poop—resulting in a nearly wipe-free bathroom trip. No more messy situations or using up an entire roll of toilet paper. (Just don’t forget to wash your hands!)
Drink More Water
Don’t forget to add some more water to your routine too! Water is another easy and effective way to increase the health of your digestive system and help you ease those fiber-packed poops right out of your body. Water and fiber are the perfect combo to get your system working the way it should.

Moving around enough can also help you evacuate your digestive system more easily and ease up on the wiping. It helps all the fiber and water move through your body and make it easier to go to the bathroom. So get moving. You don’t necessarily have to sign up for that grueling spin class (but if you do see you on the leaderboard)! Try going on more walks or doing another type of exercise you really enjoy.
