What is SafeFlush Technology? Is it different from the previous technology?

At Cottonelle®, we know that flushability is important, and continuously improving our products is, too. We've always had the most dispersible, best performing flushable wipes. Our new product improvement sets the bar even higher. Now, only Cottonelle® Flushable Cleansing Cloths give you a confident clean and have SafeFlush Technology, so they start to break down immediately after flushing.

How can I be sure it is safe to flush Cottonelle® Flushable Cleansing Cloths?

The flushability of Kimberly-Clark products is tested in accordance with trade association guidelines. These guideline tests demonstrate that when used as directed, our wipes clear properly maintained toilets, drain lines, sewers and pumps, and are compatible with on-site septic and municipal treatment plants. Cottonelle® Flushable Cleansing Cloths are flushable due to patented technology that allows them to lose strength and break down when moving through the system after flushing. Watch our video, above, to learn more about the tests that Cottonelle® Flushable Cleansing Cloths go through to ensure their flushability.
