The Fine to Flush certification is a new UK standard which determines, through scientific testing, whether flushable wipes can be flushed down toilets and pass safely through sewer systems. It was introduced by Water UK last year.
We’re proud that Andrex® Washlets™ Moist Toilet Tissues is the first major brand in the UK to receive the Fine to Flush certification which means that its products can carry the Fine to Flush logo. Our Washlets™ have passed rigorous scientific tests and will break down in the sewer system and not cause blockages.
Our moist toilet tissues are made from 100% natural fibres. They do not contain plastic and are also biodegradable.
Most non-flushable wipes such as baby wipes, cosmetic wipes and household cleaning wipes contain plastic in order to give wipes strength, so they don’t break up in use. They must never be flushed as they can contribute to sewer blockages and fatbergs and should be disposed of in a bin instead. All non-flushable wipes should carry the ‘Do Not Flush’ label on their packs.
Andrex® Washlets™ Moist Toilet Tissues, are made from 100% natural fibres and 0% plastic. They have passed both international (INDA/EDANA Flushability Guidelines) and UK (Water UK Fine to Flush Specification) requirements.
Andrex® Washlets™ Moist Toilet Tissues are absolutely safe to flush down your toilet as they have passed both international INDA/EDANA flushability standard and now the UK flushable standard Fine to Flush. Additionally, our product now disperses faster than the previous Andrex® Washlets™ Moist Toilet Tissues making them safe for the UK sewer systems.
Not all wipes are flushable and it is important to always check the products’ packaging for advice on how to best dispose of the product. If a wipe is labelled ‘Do Not Flush’, it is important to throw these in the bin, otherwise they can contribute to sewer blockages and fatbergs.
We are working hard on new Andrex® Washlets™ Moist Toilet Tissues packaging, which will be made of recyclable material so you’ll be able to recycle it with your carrier bags at local supermarkets front of store collection points. We are hoping to have this new packaging in the UK later in 2020.
