We've all done it at some point – treated our toilets like an all-purpose garbage bin. Tissues, hair, leftover food, we've flushed it all. But have you ever stopped to think about the possible repercussions? This piece will unravel the mystery behind the items you should never flush down the toilet, protecting not only your home plumbing but also our precious environment.
The toilet is not a bin, and it certainly doesn't have a magic portal that makes non-biodegradable items disappear. Non-biodegradable products like plastic wrappers, dental floss, or sanitary pads can wreak havoc on your plumbing and cause severe blockages. Worse yet, if they manage to get through, they end up contaminating our waterways, posing a significant threat to marine life.
