The Dangers of Disposable Wipes

The Dangers of Disposable Wipes | Benicia Plumbing

Initially hitting the market in the 1970s disposable wipes were sold only in the diaper section of supermarkets, but now they are available.

While you can flush them down your toilet, there are many horror stories of drain pipes and home septic systems getting clogged as well. Here are some reasons why you should not dispose of disposable wipes down your drain.

The History of Easter Eggs and Easter Egg Hunts

The History of Easter Eggs and Easter Egg Hunts | Benicia Plumbing

Easter is a religious holiday, but some of its customs, such as Easter eggs, are likely linked to pagan traditions. The egg, an ancient symbol of new life, has been associated with pagan festivals celebrating spring. From a Christian perspective, Easter eggs are said to represent Jesus’ emergence from the tomb and resurrection. Decorating eggs for Easter is a tradition that dates back to at least the 13th century, according to some sources. One explanation for this custom is that eggs were formerly a forbidden food during the Lenten season, so people would paint and decorate them to mark the end of the period of penance and fasting, then eat them on Easter as a celebration.
