Sewer officials warn against flushing disinfecting wipes down the toilet – even if the package says ‘flushable’
CLEVELAND (WKYC) — You’ve probably been using more disposable wipes around the house lately as we all take extra precautions because of coronavirus.
But please stop flushing those wipes down the toilet.
An important thing to remember… Officials say wipes are NOT flushable – even if the packaging says so.
“Flushable wipes are not truly flushable,” said Jim Bunsey, Chief Operating Officer. “They might go down the drain, but they do not break up like regular toilet paper.”
