When you look at a toilet paper holder, its pretty easy to tell at first glance whether you’ll be enjoying the comforting benefits of 2 ply toilet paper or whether you’ll be roughing it with 2-ply’s distant cousin, 1 ply. Most people prefer 2-ply, but what gives it that softer feel?
1 Layer vs. 2 Layers
Simply put, 1 ply toilet paper is made of a single layer of paper, while 2 ply has two layers. In the past, 2-ply toilet tissue was always thicker and usually assumed to be better. However, thanks to today’s technological innovations and product advances, now TP can be made of only 1 layer of paper, yet may still be thicker and stronger than 2 layers.
Price & Usage
Cost wise, 1-ply generally tends to run cheaper than 2-ply (less paper layers = less costs). In terms of usage, people use relatively the same amount of sheets regardless of which version of toilet tissue they are using. Since they are then actually using less paper when it’s 1 ply, it’s cheaper to use.
