The only paper that should be flushed in toilets is toilet paper.

Flushables, baby wipes, paper towels and feminine hygiene products clog wastewater pumps and can back up wastewater into homes or rivers and lakes. Even if a label says “safe for flushing,” it may not break down or be biodegradable. Do your part and throw these items in the trash instead.
