Items like baby wipes, cotton balls and dental floss may be labeled as "flushable" but they are not.
These items don't dissolve like regular toilet paper. They can stay in your pipes, eventually building up and resulting in costly plumbing repairs.
Flushing unflushable items won't just hurt your home, it can also back up whole sewer systems causing issues at the pump stations, or overflows on your street. There are only two things that can be safely flushed down your toilet: human waste and toilet paper. When it comes to anything else, don't flush it!
Don't flush these items:
- Baby and/or adult cleaning wipes
- Paper towels
- Dental floss
- Feminine hygiene products
- Cotton swabs
- Cat litter
