Toilet paper dissolvency - tests
I have seen few articles on this, but in reality, I am having difficulties trying to understand the process to get the test information: how it is being conducted. They claim Charmin Ultra takes 9 seconds etc to dissolve. I have placed the tissue in a glass bowl for timing and I see the tissue not dissolving unless I stir it and touch the tissue. I have tried stirring the water with a wood stick etc, without touching the tissue and after few hours, still not making a cloud in my water with the paper. Please, advise how they conducted this test.
Problem with toilet paper?
When we built our 1st house in 1973 in a rural subdivision with septic systems, I had always lived in the city, so my father-in-law taught me the septic system rules: use only 1-ply TP and only use white because the colored dyes kill the bacteria that break down the sludge in the system. We followed his rules and we were the only house in our section of the subdivision that never had a septic problem in 33 yrs.
Several folks have mentioned the Scott 1000 rolls. That's what we were using until I discovered the Walgreens Big Roll which is identical but less expensive. Of all the items available through Walgreens, the Big Roll is their top-selling product.
bidets solved my TP clogging problems
I just purchased a bidet a few months ago. With bidets, you don't have to worry about silly things such as the "dissolvency" properties of toilet paper. I use far less toilet paper, if any at all, which is good news for all my fellow spoiled Charmin Ultra users. :) Plus, the experience of cleaning myself is so much more enjoyable AND its environmentally friendly. Everyone in Asia and Europe uses bidets, I'm not sure why it hasn't hit the American scene yet. I guess it's because people are naturally turned off by the thought of water spraying down there?? Not sure.
Anyways, I have an older toilet that used to clog all the time. Since I use less TP, it hasn't clogged since. No joke. Plus, my toilet looks like an upgraded version of itself because the new bidet seat is so much prettier than my old seat:
I ended up buying this one because it got such good reviews. I love it! A bit expensive, but totally worth it. Methinks bidets are the future. :p
I read that somewhere on here is a toilet paper rating for flushability
BUt I cannot find it.
Is it still here.
