10 Things That Shouldn’t Be Dumped Down the Drain

Posted on

4. Medicine

Some people think that medicine dissolves easily in water, so they throw pills down their drain. In actuality, they don’t dissolve in water, they contaminate the water. Water filters can clear most microorganisms but there is no filter that can clear medicine contamination from the water.

5. Hair

Hair is one of the most common reasons why pipes get clogged in the bathroom. This is especially true if you have long hair. When the hair gets into the drain, it gets stuck inside and forms a ball which acts as a net for other waste. So, next time you clean the hair from your hairbrush, make sure you throw it into the trash and try to brush your hair every time before you take a shower. This will decrease the amount of hair in the drain.

6. Stickers from fruit and jars

Even if the stickers are very small, you should throw them away in the trash can instead of down the drain. The problem with these is that they have glue on them. And the stickers themselves are made of materials that take a very long time to decompose.
