If you’re in the mood to get a little graphic, I’d like to let you in on a secret; I like the cheap toilet paper. I used to fear people coming into our house, unavoidably using the bathroom, coming out with a look a disgust, like “oh you use that sort of TP – yuck.” But now after posting about my travel loo, I feel a bit liberated and want to share with the world. Hey world, I use cheap TP, and here is why.
For one, the luxurious kinds like the two ply, the ultra soft and the superabsorbent will not do for my cheeks or my wallet cause it’s so damn expensive. Secondly, they are not very absorbent, have you ever tried to use the ultra soft having it rip midway. Be honest everyone’s had moments like this, I told you we’re getting real with this shit. The cheap one ply has me so paranoid that I’ll have similar experience like the soft kind that I double up. I can hear it now if my mom were to read this she would say, two squares for pee, and four squares for poops.
Lastly and most importantly, I don’t know what it is, but the cheaper TP has more fibers in the paper, so it actually gets the rump squeaky clean. Think of it as filters grabbing from every nook and cranny. The others are just too soft that they mostly leave stuff behind, like dust bunnies but on your own- you know what. So the next time you come over, and start judging, it’s not that I’m cheap (well maybe, a little), but it’s just more reassuring for my hinny.
