I don't think I would want to try them. Plus I wouldn't want to flush them down the potty.

If you live in house that's hooked up to a septic tank, products like these are very hard on it, and will cost alot in the long haul.

Products like this destroy the sewer system. Septic or not. New York is having issues with flushable wipes

They don't absorb anything. They just make it easier to get the poop out of cloth diapers. My best description of them is think of dryer sheet after it has been used.

Thanks! I was wondering about the absorb. I think I will stay away from these.

Yeah, I won't flush these down either.

I see, I like the flush able wipes at Target. They were the Cottonelle ones. But now they change. So I went back to Pampers baby wipes. Even it says flush able, I still won't do it. I don't trust it.

No septic tank, just a sewer line. But I won't flush these down either.

Although many wipes say they are flushable (and, I am sure, the manufactures have all kinds of tests to prove it), all independent sources that I have read recently (Consumer Reports, Angie's List) all say not to flush any wipes. The chance that they will block the sewer/waste system is just too great and the repair cost is often high.
