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.

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.
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. Baby wipes, cosmetic wipes and household wipes must never be flushed down the toilet 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 and are fine to be flushed at home.
