Recently, I was reading an online article about ‘flushable’ bathroom wipes. Sewers and pipes are getting clogged all over the U.S.! It got so bad in western New York that sewer officials set up traps or baskets in the pipes to find out where they were coming from. People got letters or house calls and were told to stop using those ‘flushable’ bathrooms wipes.
Tests were even done to see if these wipes are indeed ‘flushable.’ After going through the sewer system, there are only a few rips and tears. They do not disintegrate. So, people are being told to only flush “urine, human feces, and toilet tissue.”
