Wondering about the correct etiquette for environmentally friendly toileting? You've found it.
Warning: Involves Reference to Bums and Girl Stuff!
Some basic tips here. Don't flush baby or facial wipes, tissues, condoms, tampons, pads, or dead goldfish. The best option for most of these is the bin. The goldfish will compost so perhaps a garden burial ceremony! None of the other items break down easily (or at all) and can cause major blockages in the sewer system.
Look out for reusable, washable alternatives to disposables:
That just leaves condoms - wear them - then bin them! The planet will cope! Hope that helped demystify what you can flush!
