For over 15 years I have bought nothing but Scott Tissue 1000 Sheet single ply rolls.
It’s cheap and, most important to me, lasts forever so I don’t have to change the toilet paper any more often than necessary. Sure it won’t fit on the toilet paper roll, is thin, and slightly irritating. But have I mentioned that it’s cheap? And I like when things that I flush down a toilet are cheap.
Yesterday Gizmo brought home Charmin Ultra Strong.
Oh my God! This kind of decadence led to the French Revolution. This Charmin is so thick that it wraps around the cardboard roll like maybe five times per roll. I’m going to go through four rolls a day (six after a dairy binge day). And after tissue-paper-thin Scott for 15 years this feels like I’m wiping my ass with a roll of washcloths. Which is not as pleasant as you would think.
On the positive side, she bought it. So that’s like free, which is even better than cheap. But I’m afraid that I’m going to sneeze one day and she’ll hand me a bath towel.
