Are Tampax tampons, applicators or wrappers flushable?

No, our tampons are not flushable. All used tampons, applicators or wrappers should be disposed of with your household waste. You should never flush them down the toilet.

After using your tampon we recommend that you:
  • Take the tampon out
  • Roll it up in either the wrapper it came in (or the wrapper from a new tampon) or toilet tissue.
  • Dispose of the tampon with your household waste.
