A Reminder of What SHOULDN’T Go Down the Drain

As you go through your daily life, it can be hard to remember what should and shouldn’t be going down the drains in your home. We live our daily lives, and our plumbing/septic is often something we don’t actively think about. While we’re not encouraging you to obsess over your septic, we want to remind you that being mindful is essential.
