Thankfully toilet paper is plentiful again!  That is good not only for you but your home's plumbing.  By now you know that flushing toilet wipes can cause a slew of plumbing problems, but you may think it's totally okay to flush facial tissue alongside toilet paper.  Not true!  Surprised? Facial tissues might seem safe to flush because they look so much like toilet paper. But unlike toilet paper, facial tissues have been treated with a chemical binder that takes time to release and break apart when flushed. That means it could be the source of an expensive plumbing repair. So it appears the only thing you should be flushing is your "#1s," "#2s" and toilet paper.  Everything else should be disposed of in a trash can!
