Question about tampons and septic tanks!?!?!
OK so my hubby had no idea I have been flushing my tampons (just the part that actually goes inside you, sorry if TMI) for a year and half ever since I have been living here!! So today he actually saw it in the toilet ( i was taking a shower and you can't flush when you are taking a shower) and he freaked out. We have a septic tank system and I don't know much about it because I'm a city girl I was born and raised in the city. I moved out to the country with him and I love it but I didn't know I wasn't suppose to flush those. I thought they broke up like toilet paper does!! I am hoping I am right!! I was looking on the Internet and it said don't flush anything that is not biodegradable and when I looked up my tampons they are just not the applicator which I would never flush that it is plastic!! So please help me!! I don't want to have to throw them in the trash that is just nasty! I want to flush them so I don't have to deal with them!! Otherwise I would just use pads. If anyone has any info that would help! I want to show it to my hubby so he will stop freaking out!! Thanks ahead of time!!!
