Wash it!

“Wash it” experiment:

We recently spoke to Severn Trent water company, and they told us that anything that survives the washing machine is not safe to flush. Have you had liners go through the washing machine and come out in one piece? Then send us your photos and record your results by filling in our survey!

Equipment needed:

  • A washing machine
  • One ‘flushable’ nappy liner/wipe (you could also test something you know isn’t flushable, like a baby wipe, for comparison if you like)
  • Nappy Science Gang flushability test chart
  • Camera/phone
