I only buy Charmin Basic TP now. It's ok on my bum and it's not so cloth like that it clogs up my toilet. Some of those thicker "soft" toilet paper brands are ridiculously thick. One or two uses of those and I have to get out the toilet plunger. Humorous side note, back years ago if you were traveling to the Soviet Union, you'd want to pack plenty of western toilet paper. Theirs was like sandpaper and western TP was prized like gold.

Not that I want to be a Broken record buttt I was at a local grocery store this week and what did I notice smaller rolls of Charmin Toilet paper.

The 154 sheet rolls of Toilet paper have dropped to 142 and the 308 sheet rolls are now down to 284.

I say we are early in the transition period so if you see the larger rolls get them while you can.

Use one square. Wipe your bum with your finger and your finger with the TP rofl!
We are rather lucky. Live across the road from a shop that sells products that a either close to best by date and factory rejects. I pay just over $1 for 10 rolls of two ply. Usually not even a fault one can see.

The TP at the hotel we stayed at in the Bernese Alps of Switzerland was like newsprint.
Fortunately, there was a market next to it, and in my best fractured German I asked for the softest TP they had.
When we see the commercial on TV about the bears saying, "We can't stay in this hotel" it really cracks us up.
