Are Tampax tampons, applicators or wrappers flushable?
No, all components of 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 toilet tissue.
  • If changing to a new tampon you can use the wrapper from the new tampon to dispose of the soiled applicator.
Dispose of the tampon with your household waste.  You can find more information on using and disposal of Tampax tampons at Tips for Using a Tampon
