What’s Your Toilet Paper Back Up Plan?

Toilet paper is a bit hard to find at the moment, and it has people turning to alternatives. Nothing’s wrong with that, as long as your don’t flush whatever you use after the fact. Officials in Redding, California are telling residents “Bag it, don’t flush it,” after somebody almost caused an issue on Wednesday (March 18th) when they wiped with cut-up T-shirts and then flushed them. Authorities say the T-shirts clogged pumps at a sewer station, causing a pump to back up. Officials warn that sewer backups can cause fecal matter back up into toilets, sinks, and tubs. They add that people also shouldn’t flush items such as napkins, paper towels, and wet wipes—even those that claim they are flushable on their packaging.
