     Anything that is not made for the human digestive system must never ever go down a drain into your septic system.  Items like soaps, conditioner to make up removers, and even more must never go down your toilet.

Facial tissue was never ever designed for septic systems right along with any type of wipes even if they say the world is “Safe for septic systems”. Manufacturers will put that on there because to sell the wipes but never ever had to clean them out of the main drain line. Wipes and facial tissue clog up everything and then expensive repairs are needed. Please make your septic system happy and toss them into the garbage.
