Tubeless toilet paper

Cool: Kimberly-Clark rolls out tube-free Scott toilet paper

Image
The toilet paper roll is about to undergo its biggest change in 100 years: going tubeless.

On Monday, Kimberly-Clark, one of the world's biggest makers of household paper products, will begin testing Scott Naturals Tube-Free toilet paper at Walmart and Sam's Club stores throughout the Northeast. If sales take off, it may introduce the line nationally and globally — and even consider adapting the technology into its paper towel brands.

No, the holes in the rolls aren't perfectly round. But they do fit over TP spindles and come with this promise: Even the last piece of toilet paper will be usable — without glue stuck on it...
I never had any problem recycling or tossing the cardboard tube, but this will definitely be more convenient.

Nice, sometimes I would have one last piece left and don't know what to do with it. My family is notorious for leaving the last 1-3 sheets.

The kids use the tubes for crafts
"When the common good of a society is regarded as something apart from and superior to the individual good of its members, it means that the good of some men takes precedence over the good of others, with those others consigned to the status of sacrificial animals." -- Ayn Rand

Every facet, every deposit of your mind is to be programmed by you; and unless you assume your rightful responsibility and begin to program your own mind, the world will program it for you.

Yeah. The next thing you know they'll be selling popsicles without the sticks, and then where will we be?

Both of the school boards here will not allow TP tubes to be used for crafts in the schools. Idiots are worried about fecal matter and Hep C on the tubes.

It's amazing how few significant advances there have been in butt wiping technology.
