If You Didn’t Know What to Flush and Why, This Video Will Explain it All

The Water Environment Federation and the City of Spokane, Washington Department of Waste Management have partnered for an extensive experiment – testing products to see which items disperse and which items do not.

They test items that are sometimes flushed down the toilet such as hygiene wipes, flushable wipes, toilet paper, dental floss, cotton swabs and kitty litter. The video makes it clear why these items should not be flushed.
