As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service on the internet, DML News offers the following information published by TheHill.com:
The Supreme Court on Monday declined to hear an appeal from a lower court ruling that allows a customer to sue the manufacture of flushable wipes over false advertising.
The case stems from a class-action lawsuit brought by Jennifer Davidson after she purchased Scott Naturals Flushable Moist Wipes in 2013 and noticed they “felt sturdy and thick” and “did not break up in the toilet like toilet paper,” according to court documents.
The article goes on to state the following:
Though the wipes did not clog Davidson’s home plumbing, she argued the manufacturer’s use of the term “flushable” in its marketing was deceptive and claimed the company had violated California’s Consumer Legal Remedies Act, its False Advertising Law and the Unfair Competition Law.

Don’t flush those wipes, even if they say “flushable.” They’re not. https://t.co/nFTomwUC2z

Man, listen. As a parent of small children, the whole concept of the “Flushable Wipe” is a dangerous oxymoron. Yeah, they’re great, and they’re flushable, until six months in and your whole upstairs plumbing is backed up from ’em. Flushable Wipes are their own punishment.
