Flushable wipes, Are They Really Flushable?

Posted: Wednesday, September 24th, 2014 at 5:20 PM | Category: Blog Post

A Consumer Reports test recently was done on Flushable wipes that are being touted as an alternative to toilet paper. All of the large companies such as Charmin, Cottonelle, and Scott have all claimed that their wipes are “sewer and septic safe”.

Consumer Reports has stated that their top rated toilet paper breaks down in approximately 8 seconds. They also stopped testing the wipes after 30 minutes as they did not even start to break down. As in their report, we suggest bagging and disposing of these as well as paper towels, diapers, and sanitary products as they are NOT designed to be flushed.

Clean and Fresh is nice but is it worth a $100 to $300 sewer line cleaning?
