Flushing tampons

I found out by accident my older sister flushes her tampons down the toilet. Coincidentally we've had plumbing problems a few months back and I wonder if there is a link. I'm no plumbing or feminine hygiene expert but I'm pretty sure you're not supposed to be flushing those things down the shitter.

Is It Normal?

  • Yeah, she's been clogging up the toilet. Tell her that tampons are not flushable,neither are pads. And if it says so on the box, show her that to her, too.

  • There should be information on packaging for such to notify if they are in fact dissolvable. More often than not they not to be flushed down the toilet.
