The Results of the Cottonelle Roll Poll are in!

Mar 19, 2010

Cottonelle Roll Over Toilet PaperFor those who have been following The Cottonelle Roll Poll, Team Roll Over has been announced the official winner! Cottonelle found that 72% of Americans prefer to roll OVER while only 28% of Americans roll under.

A related Cottonelle survey of 1,000 Americans, offered insight into toilet paper behavior. Some of the fun facts include:

  • Those who prefer hanging their toilet paper over are more likely to have flipped the direction of the roll at a friend’s home. 27 percent of “overs” admitted to this shocking bathroom behavior!
  • Those who prefer to roll over also seem to be more observant and neurotic about their toilet paper roll direction. For instance:
    • “Overs” are most likely to notice the direction the toilet paper is hanging (74 percent)
    • “Overs” are more likely to be annoyed when the roll is the “wrong way”, under instead of over (24 percent)

Whether you prefer to roll over or under, get your Cottonelle toilet paper on today.

Take dishwasher detergents: “The best-performing ones usually have phosphates, which are bad for the environment,” said Freeman. But phosphate-free dishwasher detergents are not great cleaners. However, a few are worth trying, including ones from Biokleen, Ecover, and Method. Another plus, you don’t have to pay a premium for them.

Then there’s toilet paper; of the 16 products tested, most of the recycled toilet papers weren’t as tough or as soft as conventional ones.

“But we did find that recycled toilet paper broke down easily in our disintegration tests and that’s good for your septic systems and the environment,” said Freeman. Marcal Small Steps is a good green choice and it’s also less expensive than some big brand names, so it’ll save you some green at the store too.

(Marcal also makes Sunrise Toilet Paper, one of the top selling toilet paper products from
