Consumer Reports: wet wipes are NOT "flushable"

While some wet wipes are marketed and sold to consumers as “flushable” items, don’t believe it! Wipes actually are NOT flushable, because they do not “break up” like traditional toilet paper. They may flush, but they do not disintegrate. In fact, according to tests conducted by Consumer Reports, “flushable” wet wipes were still intact after 10 minutes following a simulated flushing. The test then placed those same wet wipes in a mixer for another 10 minutes. Still no disintegration. As a result, Consumer Reports confirms what MWA wastewater plant operators and line crews have known for a long time – wet wipes are NOT flushable! For a demonstration of how "flushable" wet wipes do not break apart, check out the "Learn More" link to the Consumer Reports video below.
