Wet wipes are popular. Some people throw them in the toilet. This is not good.

Wet wipes are different than toilet paper. The wipes combine with fats and oils in the sewers. They make blockages. People must remove these blockages. In England, people pay 88 million a year to remove them.

If you use wet wipes, it is best to put them in the bin.

Difficult words: wet wipes (a type of paper that stays wet to make cleaning easier), combine (get together), sewer (an underground “river” for dirty water), blockage (when something blocks water or other stuff from getting by it), remove (put away).
