Mar 26, 2009

“As the nation’s leader in toilet cleaning and a local company, Clorox feels strongly that toilets and bathrooms should be cleaned, not destroyed…especially in our own backyard,” said Dan Gagen, marketing manager for the Clorox Family of Toilets Products. “You could say that it’s a crappy job, but somebody’s got to do it.

Clorox Family of Toilet Products is also deploying a Potty Patrol on Tuesday, March 24 that will be stationed on the streets of San Francisco to distribute information about the effort and details on how residents can plunge into action. (See details below).

Five Less Obvious Uses for Toilet Paper

Mar 5, 2009

Toilet Paper
You don’t have to be a rocket scientist to figure out what you’re supposed to use toilet paper for. However, toilet paper has infinite uses and here are some helpful ones when you’re in a pinch!

1.Toilet paper is an excellent substitute for tissues.
So, the next time you quiver at the sight of an empty tissue box, just grab a roll and all will be right again.

2. Scribble that golden idea onto a piece of toilet paper before it’s lost forever!
Many of history’s greatest writers have written their most famous lines on napkins, and bathroom tissue can serve the same purpose. So, if there’s no paper around, grab some toilet tissue!

3.Great for dusting or cleaning.
Unlike some other cloths, toilet paper is bright white, so it’s very easy to see how much dirt has accumulated. This way, you’ll immediately know when you need a new piece (so that you’re not putting the dirt you just collected right back onto the object being cleaned). Since it’s so soft as well, you won’t have to worry about damaging your furniture.

4. If you’ve got a spill and there are no paper towels in sight.
Toilet paper too is soft and absorbent, and it is therefore an ideal candidate for defusing this kind of situation.

5. Protecting your floor when moving furniture
Place it beneath the legs of your furniture so that the floor is not scratched when the furniture is moved.

Here’s how to do one fancy trick that’s sure to spruce up any bathroom:

The Pleated Fold

1.With the toilet paper still attached to the roll, pull out about 2 or 3 squares worth of Toilet Paper and stretch it towards you. Fold raw edge under about ½”.

2.Continue to fold the TP in an up-and-down, accordion fashion. Make at least 7 to 10 folds, the more the better. Compress the pleats into a tight stack.

3.Fold the stack of pleats in half towards you.

4.Squeeze the stack together pressing the creases firmly.

5.Release the stack of pleats and allow the folds to relax. Find the two pleats that are closest to one another (shown with arrow).

6.Expanded view; only two layers shown: Hold the two layers closest to one another and fold the corner to form a small triangle. Fold this corner once more to lock the two halves together.

7.Gently layer the pleated TP onto the roll. Arrange and fluff the TP until you have an inverted fan-like structure.
