I just saw an ad on television for ‘Charmin Ultra Strong’ toilet paper. In the ad, the strength of the new toilet paper is demonstrated by dragging what appears to be a brick across what might be sandpaper, using toilet paper as the “sled.” While the competing brand shreds under the force, the Charmin Ultra Strong survives unscathed. I could have the details of the actual test wrong, I wasn’t paying very close attention.
But I did wonder: Has there really been a public outcry for stronger toilet paper? Because I’m thinking, if you’re having problems with your toilet paper shredding during use, perhaps your issue isn’t with the toilet paper.
