TRASH it. Let it cool, then put it in a sealed container and throw it away.

Fatbergs
A mix of personal hygiene products and grease can create “fatbergs" in our sewer.

But why?
Wet wipes—yes, even the ones that say “flushable,” condoms, feminine products, paper towels (and all the other stuff) that you flush down your toilet enters our sewer system and mixes with the grease that you have poured down your sink. This mix of personal hygiene products and grease can create “fatbergs” in our sewers.
What are Fatbergs?
The word “fatberg” combines the words “fat” and “iceberg” to describe the masses of congealed grease and personal hygiene products that have been found lingering in sewers around the world.They are HUGE, DISGUSTING, DESTRUCTIVE, and COSTLY!
