Breaking News

Proctor & Gamble's Kandoo Baby Wipes are not flushable, no matter what it says on the package. I just removed close to 100 of them from a 4 inch cast iron toilet drain pipe. The strange thing is, they only traveled about 8 feet from the toilet and stopped about 10 or 15 feet from the trap.

I tried to call P&G's customer relations but they had me on hold way too long, so I abandoned that idea. Email was another fiasco. Anyway, it's not really breaking news. I'm sure the experienced workers already knew that.

Perhaps there was something in the pipe that caused them to get hung up?

I thought that I was going to find something like that too but there was nothing. They should call those wipes No Kandoo.

Well, they made it out of the toilet, right? They must be flushable...lol

Heck, golf balls are "flushable", saw it when they brought out the Champion toilets. So are toy cars, rubber duckies, plastic army men, etc, etc. Prob be hard on the old sewer system though....

I would guess the official definition of "flushable" is if something will make it through a laboratory equivilent of a drain system.Like a lot of terms on consumer products,it's vauge and open to interpretation by those of us who are buying it.

In my area there are still a lot of septic systems and the variety of things pulled out of them that have clogged them up is very wide.I'm told the home owners regularly say they only used "flushable" materials.

Too bad these things can't be more clear.
