If you're wondering about the tampon itself—the part that stays in your body to absorb menstrual fluid—the answer to that question is...simply throw it away.
Applicators—the part used to insert the tampon—are a different story. The only flushable applicator is the Original Tampax cardboard applicator. All other applicators are plastic and need to be thrown in the trash. We suggest sliding the applicator back in the plastic wrapper before you put it in the trash.
And if it gets messy...do everyone a favor and wrap it in some toilet paper first.
