Thames Water Bit It Don't Block It.

Flushable wipes myths. Wet wipes do not break down as quickly as toilet paper. They lurk in pipes and merge with fat to create huge rock hard fatbergs. Wipes also contain plastics and other man-made materials which persist in the environment.

Even if they say ‘flushable’ they should never go down the toilet. Although they disappear when you flush the loo, they take a number of years to disintegrate.
