Paper towels and newspapers do not belong in the toilet. Even diapers and disinfection wipes should not be thrown inside the toilet. All these things must be thrown in the trash. That’s what the Baden-Württemberg Ministry of the Environment says. The reason: Only wet toilet paper can dissolve in water. Kitchen paper, newspaper, disinfection wipes and diapers are tear-resistant and cannot dissolve. They clog the toilet drainpipe, the sewage system and the sewage treatment plant pumps.
