Things You Should Never Flush Down a Toilet
We’ve all done it … You run out of toilet paper and reach for the “next best thing” – a baby wipe, a kleenex … something. And you think, “Surely throwing this one thing down the drain won’t hurt my sewer line.” But even just the occasional use of alternatives can lead to a sewer line blockage. If alternatives must be used, it’s been to dispose of them in a trash receptacle rather than your toilet.

Actually, neither is your garbage disposal or drain. Use the below graphic to help remind you what things should never be flushed.
