1. Flushable wipes
Marketed as a step-up from toilet paper, adult wet wipes are another product innovation that we didn’t need.
Besides being far more expensive than traditional toilet paper, these “flushable” wipes are anything but (pun intended). They’re non-biodegradable and wreak havoc on plumbing and sewer systems, as we report in “9 Things You Should Never Flush Down a Toilet.”
The bottom (ahem) line? Save your money, save your pipes and stick with traditional toilet paper. If you just can’t live without a moistened wipe, consider a toilet tissue spray. Amazon has multiple options to choose from.
