We are a family of four which is nothing compared to a family of five or more when it comes to spending. From what I understand, once you have more than two kids, they entertain each other – which is great, but obviously it costs quite a bit more. Saving money is something on almost everyone’s mind and a few years ago I went on a ‘let’s buy generic’ kick for a few months to try to save money. By the end of a few months, you’d have thought we were a family of eight based on what I was spending on the quantity of generic items vs. name brand. Generic brands are often not as high quality and don’t hold up as well as name brands resulting in the usage of a higher quantity of the product meaning you have to buy it more often. We found that generic brand toilet paper was either not strong enough or not soft enough. Raise your hand if you like rough, tissue-paper like toilet paper. Not one of you raised your hand but I’ll bet you’d raise your hand to getting a free roll of Charmin Essentials Strong! See below for details.
I chose Charmin Essentials Strong as our first package to try. It quickly got comfortable in our bathroom, as you can see, doing what the boys do; enjoy a good read on the loo. But look how strong it is! It can hold a magazine with no hands!
I was thrilled to learn Charmin® Essentials Strong provides a big Charmin roll at Scott® 1000-like price*. That makes my wallet happy. To think toilet paper can make someone happy is sort of strange but thing about how unhappy you are when you visit a public restroom and have to use tissue-paper like toilet paper. That’s why I bring a ziplock bag of Charmin Essentials toilet paper with me on road trips. Really.
The boys in my house often felt the need to use a pound and a half of toilet paper every time they.. well, you know.. and now because they’re using Charmin Essentials Strong they aren’t getting nagged by me about using too much toilet paper. It doesn’t take many sheets of this toilet paper to do the job. Less ripping during wiping! Just look at how strong Charmin Essentials Strong is! It easily held my iPad mini and my husband’s iPhone and this wasn’t a quick photo capture. My husband spent a while getting just the right angle. He’s awesome like that.
Our pipes appreciate that Charmin Essentials is clog-safe so if the boys still decide they must use tons of toilet paper, I can rest easy knowing that Charmin Essentials Strong will break down once in the toilet and pipes.
The bottom line is – did you get that? – Charmin Essentials Strong is awesome not only because it’s super strong and soft, but also because it is giving consumers more of what we want in toilet paper at a comparable price to the product we may currently use.
