Do not put baby wipes down your temca toliet

Learnd the hard DW was cleaning and one went down, I had to remove the toliet and open up the masarator it was stuck in there. I will say the you tube video was a blessing and the job only took an hour.

I told her the first one was on me the next one is on her

Do not put baby wipes down your temca toliet

It's more than Temca toilets, those 'flushable' wipes are deadly on ALL types of sewage and septic systems!

Don't believe the label 'flushable': disposable wipes clog sewers around the world | Guardian Sustainable Business | The Guardian

If you try the test of putting one in a jar of water and shaking it, your arm will wear out before the 'flushable' wipe breaks down.

I think most of the commercial's have been pulled from TV for the wipes. We would never put them down ours.

Yep, we get warnings with our sewer bill NOT to put any baby or the so called "flushable" ones down the toilet. The do NOT dissolve and they plug up the system.

Same goes for "feminine" products...

Biodegradable does not equal "ok" for the toilet...even if it does say flushable.

You know (I use Toilet paper and a brush for cleaning in there) But have a whole bunch of folks who have done tests to find out which TP breakes down the fastest (Scotts single ply) and which is slowest (Quileted Charmin or Tetford RV posterior sandpaper) All of those (per the test reports) by the time I get business finished, get dressed, walk around the MH and pull the handle.. Going to be broken up.

Baby wipes... Days later.. Still intact.

Home is where I park it!
