I read a good article about wipes and the three P’s.
Wipes are causing problems with pipes and blocking toilets as they are not flushable.
The rules for flushing the toilet is by the following three P’s.
1. pee
2. poo
3. paper
Flush them down, anything else is a no, no!

  • We take too much for granted in trying to make our life easier.


  • i know a person who flushed tampons and in their rental home. a tree root grew through their sewrage pipe and the tampon got tuck on it and clogged up the pipes. so extremely expensive to fix! those wipes don’t break down as claimed and cause issues.


  • I flush tampons, always have and have never had a problem with it. Except for when our septic overflowed and needed pumping out, was a little embarrassing to see all my used tampons floating on top


  • It’s a great way to remember! Very good with kids.

    • A little poster on a wall is a good idea!


  • I saw a news segment on this on ABC. Didn’t know it was such a huge problem. Thanks for sharing.

    • It was a surprise to me – the extent of the problem.
