How we clean ourselves after going to the toilet is not a topic that is high on our agenda. Either it is seen as embarrassing, or we just don’t care. In some parts of the world, people use dry toilet paper. They think it is more than enough to get the job done. However, research has shown that dry toilet paper often does not clean as well as it should. In other parts of the world, cleaning with water and toilet paper is part of people’s toilet routine. But it is not always possible or convenient, whether you are in your home or outside.

Kimberly Clark has invented a new product to address this problem: Moist Toilet Tissue, also known as Flushable Cleansing Cloths. It is designed to clean your bottom after going to the toilet. It can be used with dry toilet tissues, or to replace water for better hygiene and cleanliness. Available in an easy-to-carry pouch or dispenser, it contains 9-step purified water, which will not smudge but remove what needs to be cleaned. Not only does it offer superior cleaning; its botanical extracts and refreshing scent also help to reduce odors and leave you feeling refreshed, confident and pampered. It is alcohol-free and safe for sensitive skin. While Moist Toilet Tissue is stronger than dry toilet paper, you can flush it too, like you would with regular toilet paper. 

While being clean is important to people, they do not pay as much attention to that part of their body as they would do to their face or hands, for example. They also do not know why or how using Moist Toilet Tissue is better than their current toilet routine. We feel that people most receptive to this new way of cleaning will be women, using it for themselves or their family. Can you convince them to change their habits?

Creative Challenge

Convince women to change their habits with an engaging and creative illustrated story that shows what happens when Moist Toilet Tissue becomes part of their toilet routine.

Most people don’t really pay attention to the cleanliness of their bottom and what products they use to clean it. Therefore, your story needs to be engaging, make them feel that it is relevant to them and really encourages them to think about their current behavior and consider a change. You need to find a way to engage them without turning them off, making them embarrassed or feel disgusted.

In your story, tell us about the character(s) you portray, how they think and feel, what is different about this new method of cleaning that will benefit them (or people around them), on a personal and emotional level so that people really understand why they need to change their toilet habits for the long term.

Add illustrations and pictures to your story to bring it to life.

The tone of your story should be radiant, optimistic, confident and dynamic. Use creativity, drama, surprise and/or humor to get women's attention.

With your entry, please answer the following questions:

  • In your view, what, if anything, could hold people back from changing their everyday toilet routine?
  • Why would your idea change the way people go to the bathroom?
  • How does this new routine change a person’s life?
  • How does your idea create conversations around a topic that people tend to recoil or shy away from?


The examples are only provided to illustrate our expectations. Please do not use them in your submission or it will be rejected.

To inspire you, you could look at how other products in skincare or personal and intimate hygiene introduced a new innovation to raise the bar, and changed people’s behavior.

Example of a good entry: This is the story of Mary, who works as an advertising executive in a big agency. We can read about her day and how she always feels fresh and calm, while her colleagues look more uncomfortable as time passes, wriggling awkwardly on their seats, especially when they come back from their toilet breaks. Because of that, she can handle the pressure and tough clients, while her colleagues often lose their cool. At the end of the day, she feels shower fresh and is ready to go out and enjoy the evening, while her colleagues just want to go home and take a shower to wash away the mental and physical discomfort. Her secret? She uses moist toilet tissue.

  • In your view, what, if anything, could hold people back from changing their everyday toilet routine?
  • Answer from this entry: This woman did not know that anything better than toilet paper existed so she thought that the awkward, slightly uncomfortable feeling you had after cleaning yourself with toilet paper was normal, and nothing could be done about it. Until she discovered moist toilet tissue…
  • Why would your idea change the way people go to the bathroom?
  • Answer from this entry: It brings to life in a dramatic fashion that you do not have to put up with that unpleasant feeling (like her colleagues). It makes people realize that actually there is a bit of a problem, and now someone seems to have the solution. That solution is moist tissue, which cleans better, as explained by the analogy of the clean apple, standing for a clean bottom.
  • How does this new routine change a person’s life?
  • Answer from this entry: We can see that she feels totally clean and refreshed, and thus is able to feel calm, centered and confident throughout the day. It gives her a positive attitude.
  • How does your idea create conversations around a topic that people tend to recoil or shy away from?
  • Answer from this entry: The way her colleagues sit so awkwardly will be sufficiently entertaining for people to talk about the ad. Viewers will start wondering whether there is a problem and relate that to their own experience, thus putting them in the right frame of mind to be open to alternative cleaning methods.

Example of a bad entry: This is the story of a great battle between germs, dry toilet paper and moist toilet tissue. A battle for perfect cleanliness. At the end, all bad germs have been decimated. There is a statue of a big, clean bottom celebrating Moist Toilet Tissues’ victory, as it kills 100% of the germs, unlike dry toilet paper.
