Everyday Products You Should Never Flush Down the Toilet

Every day millions of Americans are flushing ordinary products down their toilets, but experts are trying to get them to toss these things in the trash instead. "A lot of people think of a toilet like a garbage can,” says Amy Schellenbaum of Popular Science. “They think ‘if it flushes you're good to go.’ That's not the case." Some common items include dental floss, pills, and hair, but the most-flushed products are baby and makeup wipes.
