Important reminder regarding disinfectant wipes
Sanitary products and sanitary wipes are not to be disposed (flushed) down the sewer system. These products are to be disposed of in the garbage. Although they may say “flushable” or “septic safe” on the packaging, they are most definitely not flushable or septic safe.
These products will cause damage and blockages to either personal sewer systems (septic systems, holding tanks) and municipal sewer systems
