are you a thrower or a flusher?

Why do some hispanics throw their toilet paper in the trash instead of flushing?

Are u a thrower or flusher?

I don't mean to offend anyone. Dh and his family do this I never knew of this before we were together.

 Some people throw it away because their septic system isn't the greatest and it can cause a back up...

Ew! Flush, flush, flush. People put poopy paper in the trash? The bathroom must reek 24/7 unless they dump the garbage each time.

No. Not all people don't. We flush.

Quoting Whisper85:

People with septic tanks toss them. Not just Hispanics my DH is Hispanic and not once has he tossed his crappy tp in the trash can.

Some parts of Mexico and South America have bad plumbing so they don't flush the paper. Just a habit.

I got spoken to in Europe for flushing. I'm a flusher.

Quoting Anonymous:

That's why I was asking if anyone did it.


Quoting Momniscient:

That is not just a hispanic thing. It's also quite common in Europe. And South America.

Maybe actually America is the exception in the toilet world?

A lot of places that have septic tanks you can't flush or it'll back up and clog.

 OMG, I have NEVER seen "used" toilet paper in the trash.  That's just nasty.
