Horror Novel to Be Printed on Toilet Paper

May 28, 2009

Japanese horror writer Koji Suzuki, best known as the author of The Ring, has teamed up with Hayashi Paper Corp to create a frightening and bizarre bathroom reading experience. Yes – it’s a horror story, but it’s printed on something that you wouldn’t expect.

Suzuki’s new novel, Drop, will be printed on a single roll of toilet paper. The story takes place in a public restroom, and is about an evil spirit that lives in a toilet bowl. Inspired by traditional Japanese stories that served to teach children not to misbehave in the bathroom, the novel appeals to the childhood fear of being snatched away by an evil water presence. Sounds scary, right?

The entire novel is approximately three feet long, and can be read in a few minutes, making it a very accessible story for all Japanese households. Not to mention, this new endeavor could revolutionize the way that we read…or at least read in the bathroom.

3 Easy Household Tips for Going Green

May 22, 2009

Your home, no matter where you live, is a great place to start giving back to Mother Nature. Here are some fabulous tips on how to make your living habits just a little bit greener. Not only will these tips help you save the planet. They’ll also help you save some money too. Enjoy!

Break the bottled water habit and drink tap water instead. It’s estimated that families often spend hundreds of dollars a year on bottled water. Many, if not most, of these empty water bottles are destined to end up in a landfill. Making the move to drink tap water from a reusable bottle can help you save money and aid the environment.

Switch to paper towels made from recycled paper. Over 90% of American households use paper towels, creating over 3,000 tons of waste each day. Switching to recycled roll paper towels can help cut down on all this trash.

Buy produce from local farmers markets that use organic growing methods instead of reaching for a prepackaged serving at a grocery store. You’ll be supporting local business, saving money, and helping your family eat healthier – all in one simple action.

Toilet Paper Buying Tips

May 18, 2009

Buying toilet paper isn’t rocket science, but that doesn’t mean there’s absolutely no thought going into it. When you purchase a roll, you’re making a decision on quality, content, and comfort. To help you pick the best rolls for your bathroom, consider these factors:

Bleaching

While this type of paper showcases a whiter look, bleaching causes damage to the environment and possibly to yourself. Go for something unbleached or natural for safer usage.

Nature Friendly

Recycled toilet paper is your chance to give back to Mother Nature without sacrifice. Check the label to learn more about how it’s made, what goes into the paper, and whether or not it’s safe for the environment.

Texture

You’re going to be using a lot of this paper, so it’s important to choose a texture that’s comfortable. Soft toilet papers can often be the least eco-friendly yet the most comfortable, so weigh your options and find something to satisfy your needs.

Cost

Of course, it all comes down to the bottom line. Cost is going to make or break your purchase decision so try to search for the best deals on paper that you already love. ToiletPaperWorld.com offers a great selection of toilet papers in all shapes, sizes, and textures at wholesale prices for your home or business.

ToiletPaperWorld.com: Behind the Name

May 12, 2009

We get lots of laughs when we tell people the name of our website. They always wonder if we are joking, or being gross- but the reality is, we are just so passionate about toilet paper, we decided to name our website after it!

My grandfather, Jack Fischburg, started selling toilet paper (or tp as those of us in the business call it) over 60 years ago. Since then, my whole family has experimented with every type and brand out there. My Dad, Kenn Fischburg, is a renowned “expert” on the history and makings of TP, having appeared on the History Channel, the Howard Stern Show, and in a few books.

So when we decided to open a new website, we knew toilet paper had to be the focus. It seems that everyone has their brand of preference. I recently came across a woman who bought HandiWipes from our site and also agrees with our name choice. Ruth writes “I myself certainly make good use of toilet paper, and of course have my favorite brand…which come to think of it is getting harder and harder to find…It is crystal clear why they chose TOILET PAPER as their sobriquet. Everyone but everyone uses this item…OFTEN, COPIOUSLY, FOREVER.” You can check out her blog here.

So there is a little background, don’t forget to visit ToiletPaperWorld.com!

New Consumer Report about Toilet Paper

May 5, 2009

ConsumerReports.org has just released a new, comprehensive report on Toilet Paper. They tested many of the biggest national and store brands to look at strength, softness, price, quality, and disintegration.

In terms of price, you can save over $100 dollars a year by purchasing store brand toilet paper from places like CostCo and Walmart, if you don’t mind sacrificing strength and softness.

In terms of softness, Charmin, Cottonelle, and Quilted Northern are still the choice of most consumers. The amount of plies doesn’t matter so much anymore, since innovative technology means that Charmin technically only has 1-ply, but the same thickness as a 3-ply toilet paper.

Marcal Sunrise Toilet Paper

Flush-able wipes have become very popular, but they might not be so popular in your septic system. These flush-able wipes performed very poorly in their disintegration tests and may damage or back up your sewer or septic system. The advice is to throw them in the trash after you use them (but here at ToiletPaperWorld.com we think that sounds pretty gross…)

Lastly, they tested the top recycled toilet papers again- Marcal Sunrise and Seventh Generation. Last year they performed horribly on softness but have since been reformulated. The tests concluded that although both are a inexpensive green alternative, they don’t hold up against the traditional favorites in terms of softness or strength. However, a little bit of sacrifice on your bum might be worth it to save the trees. You can see the rest of our eco- friendly products at ToiletPaperWorld.com.
