Flushiblity of daily wipes are Really NOT

Don't Believe the Label

Barry Orr, an environmental applied science graduate, teamed up with a research group called Ryerson Urban Water to design a first-ever comprehensive test of single-use products using rigorous criteria for flushability.  NOT one daily wipe product are flushable (That was 101 products tested)

The findings are summarized in a report, Defining ‘Flushability’ for Sewer Use, that comes out of Ryerson University’s Flushability Lab at Ryerson Urban Water. Tests evaluated 101 single-use products, of which 23 were labeled as ‘flushable’ by the manufacturer. Results showed that not one single wipe was able to fall apart or disperse safely through the sewer system test. This can negatively impact household plumbing, municipal sewage infrastructure, and consequently, the environment.

So think before you flush.  You will save money, protect infrastructure, and the environment by properly disposing of wipes in the garbage
