[ARCHIVED] Flushable Wipes are Scary!

Graphic of a ghost saying "Don't flush wipes down pipes"

The package may say "flushable", but those wipes really are not meant to be flushed.  The woven, fibrous cloth material of the wipes does NOT break down in the wastewater systems like toilet paper does.   They can clog piping and damage your plumbing.  They can also become entangled in wastewater transport systems causing major damage to equipment.  We know they're convenient, but please, toss them in the trash, not the toilet.
