11 Things You Should Never Flush Down Your Toilet


For most people, using the toilet has become such an everyday activity that its functionality and purpose are often taken for granted—of course, until a plumbing issue arises. While most people understand that a toilet is designed to flush away human waste and toilet paper, many people are not aware of what they should absolutely never flush.

To help homeowners and their families avoid unnecessary plumbing issues, our Los Angeles plumbers at Moe Plumbing Services have listed 11 items that individuals should never dispose of via toilet:

  1. Bathroom wipes
  2. Cotton swabs and cotton balls
  3. Dental floss
  4. Prescription medications
  5. Paper towels
  6. Cigarette butts
  7. Band-Aids
  8. Oil, grease, and fats
  9. Cat litter
  10. Disposable diapers
  11. Feminine hygiene products

Flushing such products down the toilet may not only result in significant plumbing problems but can also contribute to environmental pollution. At Moe Plumbing Services, our team seeks to prevent both types of issues, and that is why we are here to offer professional residential plumbing services.
