Toilet paper

post #1 of 29
Thread Starter 
It really irritates me that work only buys the cheapo toilet paper - I mean it is like tissue paper, thin and flimsy. Come on people - invest a little more money in the TP for your employees' sake.

What does your work do?

What brand do you use at home?

I have been using Royale for a long time. I recently tried Charmin, and wasn't too fond of it.

Quilted Northern

I'm cheap at home: I buy Scott, Marcal or whatever store brand has 1,000 sheets per role.

At the office they buy the expensive stuff (400 sheets per roll & cushy) - we're a VERY small office.

My office buy cheap scratchy crap.
At home we either use quilted northern or angel soft (I think that is what its called)

I like Charmin but it doesn't break down as well in septic tanks(well atleast that is what I was told)

At work they use that stupid stuff thats in public bathrooms and at home I use either charmin or kleenex brand.

At work they use one that disintegrates quickly - I can see that.

At home I only like Cottonelle (name has changed and I can't remember the new name). I tried Royale and didn't like it.

At home we have Target brand. DH sometimes uses the Cottonelle wipes. I have no idea what there is at work, but it's something cheap.

I've had some "intestinal discomfort" today and I am glad we buy Charmin Ultra. After a couple of "moments" even it was beginning to feel like very coarse sandpaper.

I've heard tissue in public toilets described as "John Wayne Toilet Paper". Rough, tough, and it don't take (insert "s" word for poop) off no one!

They use cheapo TP at work too but one of the managers at our end has a private bathroom that we all use and it is stocked with Charmin too

We usually get mid to higher quality brands, whatever is having a nice sale.

OMG this post just reminded me of a great moment that happened years ago...

I was working at a chain restaurant at the time and the corporation had decided to change their toilet paper to a cheaper brand. So at the daily staff meeting (in the middle of the restaurant no less) the managers had said that they knew it was bad stuff and we just had to deal with it for a while.... when one of the other girls in the group shouts out "BAD?! I've been to shanty bars in Brooklyn that have better toilet paper than this!!" The whole restaurant got quiet and then everyone just died laughing. Man... that was just hilarious.

Anywho... it's scott all the way here.

I use the Shoprite brand which is where I shop in my area. I use single ply since double ply, I was told can mess up your toilet bowl, it doesn't flush as easily.

It depends on how much you use, if you have to use twice as much single ply you're obviously not helping(or saving) in any way. ... Now if you're like my brother in law who has to use half a roll whenever he visits then single ply might be a better choice.

Double nice!!

I once worked for a guy who made us buy our own toilet paper.
I usually buy the "green" TP. It's not too sandpapery and I like buying green when I can.

I make sure i have a decent toilet paper at home, but at work it's cheap chat
post #21 of 29
We always have charmin untra, its nice and soft, and anywhere public, theres the cheap stuff. The student council at the school tried to get the school to buy better TP one time, they lost...
post #22 of 29
I use Charmin ultra or Cottonelle. If I get the cheap stuff, I end up using twice as much, so don't save any money really.
post #23 of 29
At home i use whatever's on sale(as long as its decent) at work there is really cheap stuff,Which suprises me considering i work for a huge company in the coorporate offices.
post #24 of 29
I only use quilted Northern at home!!
Its funny that everyone mentioned the "cheap" toilet paper". The vast majority of it is made within a 30 miles radius of my house. The Fox Valley/Green Bay area of Wisconsin is the TP capital!! (also diaper and feminine hygeine capital too!!). If you read the fine print on many of the TP holders in commercial bathrooms (even overseas) it will have a Wisconsin address.
post #25 of 29
I buy whatever two ply brand is on sale.
post #26 of 29
I buy the double or triple rolls (don't like replacing it constantly) whatever's on sale.

At home we use the Kirkland stuff from Costco. It's fine. At work, we have the flimsiest of the flimsy. I hoped that when we had the major renovation and the plumbing was updated to the 21st century, we might possibly have moved up to the 20th in paper products. No such luck. But then we have those wonderful water conservation toilets that can't handle anything on the first pass, and must be flushed at least once more for the whole depost to be accepted.

Does anyone remember public toilets that had those square boxes on the stall wall that had individual squares of what could only be described as "packing paper"? LOL The squares were about 3" x 3" and you had to spend about 15 minutes pulling them out one by one to get enough to use!

I hated those things. I haven't seen them around for eons. I sure hope that they were bannished from toilets everywhere!

My friend's company has those and you just hear people ripping sheet after sheet out of the dispensers. In the end someone broke the locks on them and they leave them open and take as much as they need.
