Have you noticed the rising cost of 'disappearing' toilet paper?
Since questions seem to be heading for the CRAPPER, I thought I'd give a nudge & flush it all down the sewer. This is actually a sincere diatribe, has been bothering me for a few years. Please refrain from telling me to get a life.
My story: I must use 1 ply TP because my sewer has been damaged by tree roots. Found this out 30+ years ago. So, I use 1 ply; the 1000 sheet kind. In the past 2-3 years I've noticed I'm using more. Not going more. It doesn't last as long.
A ruler & some tedious measuring showed that: The individual sheets are narrower (about 1/2"), they are shorter (about 3/4"). Obviously there's less paper. Still "1,000 sheets" as they proudly proclaim. Soon this 1 ply will be the size of yellow stickies, but still "1,000" sheets, I'm sure. Am not going to speak of how the price has more than doubled.
Final insult, I've found each sheet is THINNER. Gah! It's difficult to gather up a bunch, it rips apart.
/diatribe. Wondering if anyone else has noticed?
