Many people are choosing alternative bathroom paper products, such as wet wipes, baby wipes, cotton balls, and paper towels. Many of these products have marketing language that states they are flushable. However, these products are not flushable. Products other than toilet paper are not designed to be flushed down the toilet. They do not break down or disintegrate quickly enough and can clog your plumbing, your sewer lateral, and the mainline sewer. All hygiene products other than toilet paper should be thrown in the trash. A sewer back up at this time, with limited cleaning supplies available, can spread other infectious viruses. Please remember "No Wipes Down the Pipes."
