One day in January we decided to test to see which type of TP was strongest: the expensive, thick kind or the cheap thin one. I figured it would obviously be the thickest brand, but I was WRONG! We even tried our experiment with a fast food napkin, figuring that surely it wouldn't last long. This video shows that part of the experiment. It lasted much longer (wet and holding a few pennies) than both the expensive TP and the cheap TP. So, that cushy three-ply TP might be soft, but it's not as strong as you might think--at least not once it's wet. It's probably because you want the TP to break down fast when it hits your septic tank, so the manufacturers have to strike a balance.
Anyway, there is a short write-up of this in our portfolio, but Suzi really wanted to make a video to share. Remember, kids: "You can do this at home with sunglasses. If you have sunglasses."
