Flushable doesn't mean it won't clog your pipes

The package says "flushable" but is it really?  Disposable brushes, wipes, tampons applicators, tampons, etc. may say "flushable" on the label, but they can still clog the sewer line.  Toilet paper breaks down in water; other items do not break down.  This means they can get stuck in the sewer pipe creating large bills for plumbing and cleanup.  Don't spend your money on a sewer back up, trash anything that is not toilet paper.
