5 things you should never flush

Most likely you use to flush these things, out of convenience. Either because it is closer than the trash can in the kitchen, or because you thought they are harmless. After all, what can happen if you flush wet wipes or oils? Well, they can block the pipes and there may also be unpleasant odors in the bathroom. Before you blame the neighbor on the upper floor because he flooded your bathroom once again, here are the five things you never flush:

5 things you should never flush

Wet wipes

They can block your sewage system. As a result, you will have to clean it every 3 months.


They stick together in the pipe curves and can collect other minor garbage, such as hair, thus creating a blockage.

Coffee grounds

They can easily accumulate inside the pipes and increase the chance of a blockage.

Cat litter

Silica gel, mineral, or scoopable cat litter does not dissolve in water, and this is why it is prohibited to wash it away into a sewer. Clay litters, when wet, make big chunks which can easily block your pipes.


The gel inside diapers cannot be dissolved. On the contrary, it swells when wet. Thus, it blocks the pipes.
