You know, my whole life, I’ve been under the impression that as far as toilet paper goes, anything’s pretty much fine as long as it’s two-ply. I was WRONG!

Quilted Northern
This is the two-ply Quilted Northern that has been causing some chafy-ness. Seriously, it’s like if I were using a nail buffer, not for its intended purpose.

Quilted Northern detail
Detail shot of the Quilted Northern. Seems innocuous enough, doesn’t it? But it’s not!!!

Charmin detail
For comparison, this is ONE-ply Charmin. I can’t even begin to describe how much better it is.

I don’t know if it’s cos I got a bad batch of Quilted Northern or what, but I doubt I’ll ever buy it again. EVER. This is the second brand of toilet paper that I’ve had to cross off my list since I passed my first quarter century:p The first was that Cottonelle Ripples stuff. It wasn’t chafy, but it broke apart too easily. I’d put up a picture of that stuff, but there’s no more around these here parts:p I don’t know if it’s me getting more sensitive (no more so-called resilience of youth and all that sort of thing) or what. But yeah, so now I have only two brands of toilet paper to count on that I can think of, Charmin and Angel Soft. I’m becoming a brand name whore:p Well, as long as it’s not Ripples or Quilted Northern, I’ll try something else if I see it, but for now, I’m thinking about labeling the remaining rolls of Quilted Northern “Emergency Earthquake supplies.” You know, along with the emergency Spam.


  1. yeah charmin ultra less is more! cha cha cha charmin! angel soft is always good too. either or, buh nothing else.

  2. This post cracked me up. A “bad batch” of toilet paper. Who’d have ever thought of that? :) Love all the pictures you include in your posts, too!

  3. Thanks:)

    I like pictures, but I’m getting a teeny bit of a reputation for taking bad pictures of people cos I get snap happy:p Everyone turns out with eyes closed and mouth open and etcetc.
