Did you know that there’s such a thing as Toilet paper researchers? Yep there is, and a team of them at Georgia Pacific’s Innovation Institute in Neenah, Wis, have come up with a three ply version of it’s Quilted Northern product.
The new product was set to be launched in mid- September. The company touts the toilet tissue as “ultra-soft” and says it plans to market the product to women 45 and older who view their bathroom as a “sanctuary for quality time.”
Industry analyst Bill Schmitz is skeptical. He said extra layers make toilet paper stronger, not softer, although he said Georgia Pacific may have added extra fibers for softness.
Hmmm … I’m not really sure why this made the news as there’s been three ply toilet paper around for quite a while – well at least here in Canada.
How do you decide which toliet paper to purchase? Do you go by price or do you chose brands that are soft and have two or three ply tissues?
