Cornell Cooperative Extension: Don’t Flush the Wipes!

Because of the coronavirus pandemic we’re buying and using lots more stuff than we might have otherwise…toilet paper comes to mind. But we’ve also been using many wipes of all different kinds, and the tendency is to flush them down the toilet. Mike Wilson of the Cornell Cooperative Extension of Rockland County in Stony Point begs you NOT to flush the wipes…

Best bet, he says, it to put the wipes right in the trash. Clorox recently said store shelves won’t be fully stocked with wipes until summer, telling analysts that demand for disinfectant products has increased more than 500%.
