Can you throw hair in the toilet?

#9 Hair. Just because it's a part of our body doesn't mean it can be safely flushed down the toilet. Hair clogs up showers, sinks and toilet plumbing. Like dental floss, it forms giant balls which trap odours and create massive blockages in pipes, plumbing and sewers.

Similarly one may ask, is it okay to flush pubes down the toilet?

It won't clog your toilet but It does cause a lot of work down the line. Hair is small and difficult to filter in water treatment plants. It's insoluble, doesn't easily degrade over time and literally tons of it ends up in the sewerage system.

Likewise, how do you clean your pubes? Wash your pubic hair using warm water.

  1. Use specially pH balanced pubic washes to clean your pubic hair if you must use a product. You can find these washes over the counter or by asking your local pharmacist.
  2. Do not use deodorant, talcum powder, shampoo, or fragranced wipes to clean your pubic hair.

Subsequently, question is, what shouldn't you flush down the toilet?

Avoid flushing the following items down the toilet:

  • Paper Towels. Surprised?
  • Cosmetic Wipes. Wet wipes are one of the worst problems in modern sanitary systems.
  • Baby Wipes. They're smooth, gentle, and soft but they don't break down like toilet tissue.
  • Condoms.
  • Tampons and Pads.
  • Dental Floss.
  • Contact Lenses.
  • Cotton Swabs.

What is the best way to trim your pubic hair?

If you want to simply trim or style pubic hair, use a pair of scissors, electric razor or bikini trimmers to cut the pubic hair to the desired length. When trimming hair around areas that are not clearly visible, grab a mirror so you can see what you are doing and minimize chances of error, cuts or irritation.
