Please DO NOT flush your “flushable” wipes. The Minnesota Pollution Control Agency has this to say about “flushable” wipes:

“These so-called ‘flushable’ wipes don’t break down the way toilet paper does. They clog homeowner and
municipal sewer pipes, put stress on community wastewater collection and treatment equipment, and cause
cities to spend thousands of dollars on premature equipment repair and replacement.
Wipes snag on any imperfection in sewer pipes, catch passing debris and grease, and create a “ball” that will
grow to plug the pipe. Cities must manually clean screens or remove clogs.”
