MYTH: Tampons are flushable
Despite what many woman think, tampons should always be throw in the garbage and not in the toilet. Tampax, Kotex and organic brand Lola all tell consumers to not flush their products on their websites, while o.b. directs people to throw them in the garbage when done. Tampons, like Nampons, should be throw out as they can clog plumbing systems and their bad for the environment if flushed.
Cotton tampons stick to the clot so the bleed restarts when removed.
When a clot is formed, cotton binds to the clot. As a result, when the tampon is removed, like a tissue, it often reopens the would causing the bleed to start again.
Nampons are like bandages. They are non-stick and remove painlessly without restarting the bleed.
