Re: All This Talk About TP....what Brand Do You Buy?


But I also do more than just squirt water on them. That wouldn't do squat. No pun intended... or was it?

Anyway, just how much pressure does one of these things have? 40 degree pressure washer pressure? Will it blast a hole in the ceiling if I stand up?

Dang. Enema function. That may be a bit too much. That might get the floor wet as it blasts up your butt and out your mouth and ears.

Oddly enough, one of my kids was just mentioning this to me... can't picture myself buying or using it, but I tried to remain open to the concept... I guess I'm trying to wrap my head around how water coming OUT of a toilet is a good thing...

Doesn't make much sense. Sounds like the same amount of paper is being used, it's just going to different places. Before he said 80% to business and 20% to consumers. Now it's flipped. It's the same amount of people and they aren't going to the bathroom more, so the amount shouldn't have changed.

“ the government and first responders are definitely taking far more than they were before,” Hebert said.

He says the U.S. relied on China and India for about 10% of its tissue supplies prior to the COVID-19 outbreak.

China stopped producing it as the country deals with the impact of the outbreak, which put a strain on the U.S. supply.”
