Unlike toilet paper, these products don't breakdown once they are flushed. This can lead to an expensive repair bill - for both you and the city.
I wanted to get this post out before Burning Man as many Burners will be using Action Wipes and even baby wipes, to clean their bodies. Aside from clogging pipes, it's a mess to clean up - check out what happens when burners don't head the warning:
Imagine having that job! Please, be courteous, and don't flush. The following items should NEVER be flushed:
- Action Wipes
- Disinfecting wipes/and or baby wipes
- Toilet cleaning pads
- Mop or "Swiffer" type refills
- Paper towels
- Moist towelettes of any kind (even biodegradable)
- Any consumer item that is not toilet paper.
