The coronavirus scare is putting people in an awkward position. While many in the UK are buying face mask, so the online suppliers run out of face masks, people in Australia have stocked up on toilet paper.

It was reported that Australians bought everything in bulk because of the coronavirus scare. And they also bought rolls of toilet paper. However, some thought even that wouldn’t be enough and bought wipes.

While toilet paper is an excellent option to flush, wipes are not. Wipes may claim to be flushable but most of them can damage the plumbing. That’s why people are warned not to flush the wipes in toilets rather throw them in the bins. Besides this, people are also provided with the contacts of plumbers so that you can reach out to an emergency plumbers near you quickly.

Every year the municipality on Australia spends $15 million in removing the wipes from pipes. The wipes cause blockage in the plumbing, and it costs a fortune to clean it. That’s why the government urged people not to lose their calm and shop in panic.

Companies like Kleenex that produce wipes claim that their wipes are flushable. But they are not, wipes are unsuitable for flushing. Last year the manufacturer of White King, made by Pental, was fined $700,000 because they were accused of claiming their wipes flushable when it wasn’t.

Prime Minister Scoot Morrison asked people in the press conference not to panic and be calm and handle the situation. Even the leading manufacturers of toilet papers in Australia have assured that they won’t be running out of toilet papers. The supermarkets may run out of it, but there will always be sufficient in stock to reshelve toilet paper.
