It’s probably something that you don’t think about every day, but what you flush down the toilet can have a big impact on your plumbing. If you’re not careful, you could easily end up with a clogged toilet. In this blog post, we will discuss five things that you should never flush down the toilet!
Toilet paper is designed to be flushed down the toilet, but you should never flush anything other than toilet paper! If you do that, it could clog your toilet and lead to a messy cleanup job as well as expensive plumbing repair costs. It’s not worth taking chances with your plumbing system by trying to flush something besides toilet paper down the drains of your home or office building; instead stick strictly to using only what was intended for use in these situations: plain white unperfumed tissue rolls.
“Flushable” Wet Wipes
Do NOT put wet wipes, even those labelled “flushable” in your toilet. This will cause major clogs because they’re too thick and don’t dissolve quickly enough which means they’ll sit there until someone comes along with a toilet plunger or snake tool to rescue them from oblivion.
Do NOT flush facial tissues (Kleenex) down the toilet either; these types of tissue products have been known as an alternative when toilet paper isn’t available but they’re not meant for flushing because they clog easily and don’t dissolve like toilet paper will do on its own accord so it’s best left at home where you can use it accordingly without causing any issues whatsoever!
Feminine Hygiene Products
Do NOT flush feminine hygiene products or baby wipes either; these are not designed to dissolve in water like toilet paper is so when they get caught up with some clogs and slow drains, it could end badly for everyone involved! It may seem like a good idea at first but trust me on this one guys… don’t do it! If possible try using only toilet paper while travelling abroad (not always an option).
The toilet is not the place for your dental floss, even though it might feel like you are doing the right thing by throwing it in there after using it on those hard-to-reach places between teeth and gums. Flushing this item is a sure-fire way to create a clog, so it’s best just to dispose of it in the trash can instead.
While it may seem like a good idea to use toilet paper as an impromptu coffee filter in a pinch, don’t flush them down the toilet because they’ll clog up your drains and cause major problems when trying to unclog them later on; just throw them away instead.
