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.

Rule of them: Your toilet is NOT a trash can.

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

Have you occasionally disposed of material other than sewage and toilet paper down the toilet? If so, how do I know if I have a sewer blockage? Check out our 5 signs that your sewer line may need to be cleaned.
