6 things that should never be flush down the toilet:

People think it’s normal, but flushing every things down the toilet isn’t good for your toilet – pipes and sewer system. Many things flushed down the toilet can harm the pipes and cause sewer system problems. When non flush-able items go down the toilet, they may disappear from toilet. But certainly end up somewhere with serious damage, so it’s better to prevent toilet issues by not flushing certain items.

1- Bathroom wipes and paper towels:
Bathroom wipes and paper towels are made to collect water and messes. The materials used to make tissues, paper towels and bathroom wipes do not dissolve easily in water. And if you flush them down to toilet, they can lead to clog in sewer pipes or clog to your toilet.

2- Oil, Fats and Grease:
We usually think it’s safe to flush down the food fats in toilet but it’s not at all. When grease – oil and fats are hot they go down as a liquid form, but as they cool down they start building up on sides of pipe. That can cause severe blockage in your sewer system. keep grease, oil and fat in a plastic bag and throw it away in the trash.

3- Medications or Drugs:
We often flushing medicines or drugs to keep them out of the wrong hands, but its very dangerous. These drugs contaminate groundwater supplies and can have terrible effects on wildlife downstream.

4- Band-Aids:
These are made from non-biodegradable plastic, which doesn’t dissolve and can cause many problems in your pipes. Bandages will catch food and hair particles, creating huge clogs in your drains, and will lead to blockage.

5- Disposable diapers, pads and cotton balls:
Disposable diapers, pads and cotton balls are designed to absorb moisture and expand. The expansion makes them unsafe to pass through pipes and sewers. This also applies to cotton balls and cotton swabs. These things should be disposed in the trash.

6- Hair:
Hair clogs shower, sink and toilet. Hair gather together in bends of the pipe, causing massive blockages. Instead of flushing down hair in toilet, while cleaning your brushes or combing wet hair, just throw your hair into the garbage to avoid damage in sewerage pipes.
