No. The answer is no.

Baby wipes will inevitably clog up the drains resulting in fatbergs

Although wipes are wonderful for usage, they do not flush as well as it was once suggested. Many of the wipes even tout the name “flushable” or “disposable”, which gives a lot of people the thought that they can be flushed down the toilet.

Flushing wipes can harm your toilet

‘Flushable’ wipes can cost thousands to fix clogged pipes

Most of the parents who use wipes will throw them into the dirty diaper and then throw the diaper away; adults that use the wipes on themselves are unlikely to throw them in the garbage because of what is contained in them unless it is only used to wipe their hands or face. Anything that is flushed down a toilet has to go through a sewage system, and if the wipes get stuck partway down, anything else that passes through can also get stuck to it. What typically happens is the wipes will go down the toilet, go down through the pipes, but somewhere along the way they will get stuck, and eventually, more can get stuck, creating a ball, which then creates the clog and a big mess.

Problems faced while flushing wipes

Many will first experience a problem with their toilet if they continue flushing wipes down the drain. The toilet may overflow at one point, or it is possible that it can’t flush anything but keep backing up into the toilet or slow draining. 

Contact a plumber to solve the problem

When you experience a clog, you may never know exactly what is clogging your system, but if you know that you use wipes every day and flush them, then you can bet that it’s very likely that the wipes will eventually clog up your drains.
