People With Periods, What Do You Do With Your Tampons?

Trash, toilet, or nah?

It has recently come to our attention that we don't all dispose of our tampons in the same way.

While it's generally understood that tampons are SUPPOSED to be wrapped and deposited in the trash after use, in reality, some have copped to ~other~ means of disposal.

Yep, plenty of people actually flush their tampons down the toilet. This is bad because tampons aren't biodegradable, and that ish can clog your damn turlet.

And! to make it more confusing, though Kotex and Tampax say you should never flush, Playtex actually suggests tossing your tamp in the toilet as a potential disposal method in its Tampon FAQs.

And then there's...what this lady does.
