Scott is introducing Tube-Free Toilet Paper. Seems like a great idea to me – much less wasteful. Of course, I am partial to Northern TP, despite their recent 1/2 inch reduction in the width of their rolls. I generally regard Scott as the brand that is sold by single rolls at the corner store and, due to its unhappy combination of gauzy thinness and splintery roughness, is suited only to dire emergencies. So let’s hope the other TP manufacturers follow suit on shunning the tube.
In the comments section of the post, though, someone looking forward to trying the new tubeless technology complained that they’d just purchased 24 rolls – which for them was a year’s supply. I. Heart. Cars had this to say in response:
24 rolls in a year? What, do you tear off one square, stick your finger through the middle of it, wipe with your finger, then use the square to wipe your finger?
Of course, this all just reminds me again that using wads and wads of TP is barbaric; and that this country needs to embrace the vastly superior Japanese technology for bum-and-vag-cleaning.
