I found a roll of this when my Gran passed away. Had no idea what it was!

I used it to wrap cookies and snacks for lunchboxes

Because this type of papir was not perforated another advantage was that the dispenser had a serrated blade which permitted cutting sheets to the size desired.

Yesterday I went shopping and TP was on my list.

I bought the kind I always do - Charmin Ultra Strong.

This morning when I put a new roll on the dispenser it looked funny to me.

It lookes narrow - too much of the spinner on my dispenser was showing.

I grabbed the cardboard core from the old roll and held it against the new roll.

I was right.

Now it's 1/4" narrower.

When will it stop ?!?!?!?!?!?!

Look at the positive side, Mrs.
Remember how hard it used to be to get that spring loaded spindle lined up and inserted into the rails when the rolls reached side to side with little room to spare?

There is only one thing a person needs to think about unclogging in the bathroom. Their ear wax of course

Has anyone else noticed that facial tissues are not as wide as they used to be? We buy Scotties and they are shorter than their traditional length.

The COMPANY now says they made the toilet paper smaller in order to flush better andddd they say that move some important fibers to like the middle of the roll so it cleans better.
