Ask Poopreport: Flushing Flushable Wipes
I would like to see some decent answers to this question, because I wonder about this, too!
Why would a flushable wipe company (like Kleenex Cottonelle) tell its customers that their wipes are flushable and biodegradable when they clog septic systems? Flushable wipes fail biodegrading tests all the time. Is this legal? If my plumber or septic tank guys put in writing that flushable wipes clogged my system shouldn't the company who claimed their wipes could be flushed have to pay for my bill?
Editor's Note: I felt like posting a cute puppy today, and I don't care that it has nothing to do with the story.
