In the past, using a toilet for tampon disposal was a ticket to one thing – a clogged toilet. Today, however, tampon makers have helped with this problem. Any public restroom feminine hygiene guide will telll you that flushing applicators is a big no-no. However, many companies are now making tampons with applicators that are made of materials designed to break down in heavy water. This means that when these tampons are flushed, they will not be around for long enough to clog your toilet.
Tampax was the first to introduce toilet safe tampon disposal. Other manufacturers have followed and now almost any major brand, probably including your brand of choice, can provide you with these convenient models. Take a look into this at your local drug store. Save yourself the trouble of unclogging your toilet by only practicing tampon disposal in the toilet with the right kinds that won't give you problems.
