Be Careful What You Flush
Blocked up? These Washington sewers are.
Even if it says it’s “flushable,” you may need to think twice.
The supposedly flushable body and household wipes claim to disintegrate in sewers. However, utility officials are claiming otherwise.
So why is this such a big deal now? Apparently a lot of people are buying up the wipes. The industry has boomed for flushable tissue wipes.
The cost though is being paid by the Washington Suburban Sanitary Commission. They claim that they’ve spent more than a million bucks on material to get rid of the wipes that were clogging sewers and sewage pumps.
Who knew wipes could be so dangerous?
