Playtex Playon  Sport Tampons

Should I flush my used tampons down the toilet?

It’s best to simply wrap a used tampon in toilet paper and toss it in the garbage or if you’re in a public washroom, place it in the waste receptacle for feminine hygiene products. And of course, don’t ever flush a plastic applicator down the toilet. Simply wrap it in its original wrap or in some toilet paper and throw it in the garbage, as well.

After all, just think of the hassle of fixing a clogged up a toilet. No one wants to deal with that, right?
