Recycled Art Made From Toilet Paper Rolls

Apr 30, 2010

Toilet Paper Roll ArtRecently, I found toilet paper rolls recycled into amazing art! I contacted the artist to find out how she made these beautiful toilet paper roll creations. Her name is Anastassia Elias, a 33 year old woman from Paris, France.

Anastassia Elias is a full-time artist and illustrator. Her preferred medium is paper collages and paintings. She has illustrated two children’s books and exhibited her paintings.

The toilet paper roll sculptures were inspired by the artists’ everyday observations. She cut small paper shapes that she places inside the toilet paper rolls with tweezers. Using paper that is the same color as the roll gives the illusion that the paper figures are part of the toilet paper roll. They have a whimsical quality, capturing moments in time that may otherwise be overlooked or seen as mundane in a busy world.

Toilet Paper Roll Art by Anastassia EliasQ & A with Anastassia Elias:

Q: What was your inspiration for reusing toilet paper rolls for art?

A: I have fun to find what can I do with recuperated materials. And one day I looked at an empty roll and wondered if I can do something with it. And later, with no reason, I had an idea.

Q: How long does it take to make each toilet paper sculpture?

A: I need few hours to make one piece, 2-3 hours on average.

Q: What is special about using a mundane part of every day life to create something beautiful?

A: Every day we take the same road to go working, we make the same gestures to prepare a morning coffee. All these small events of everyday go unnoticed. But it is they who make a life. So I wanted to put these neglected events on a pedestal and to show that everyday life is not boring.

Patron Saint Series Featuring Recycled CDsQ: What other recycled art sculptures (if any) have you made?

A: I used old CDs to make the series “Patron Saints”. Also I made the series “Hunger” by using rusks and different recuperated materials.

Kleenex Brand Facial Tissues History

Apr 23, 2010

Kleenex Facial Tissues BoxesKleenex brand facial tissues is now a recognized brand name for facial tissues. The name Kleenex alone is synonymous with facial tissues! But Kleenex facial tissues were almost never recognized for their use as disposable handkerchiefs. The story behind Kleenex facial tissues began in 1924, when the tissues were first marketed for using to remove cold cream from the face.

Advertisements were featured in magazines such as Ladies Home Journal, McCall’s, Good Housekeeping, Harper’s Bazaar, Vogue, Cosmopolitan and Redbook stating that Kleenex facial tissues were celebrities’ beauty secret.

A researcher at the Kimberly-Clark company was responsible for the idea to market Kleenex tissues as a disposable and soft handkerchief. He convinced the advertising sales department that Kleenex facial tissues could also be used in place of cloth handkerchiefs, and they began running ads focused on this purpose.

Kleenex sales flourished after that! Thus, the historic brand name became a beloved household and bathroom product.

Check out Kleenex facial tissues at ToiletPaperWorld.com as well as other brands of facial tissues. For more information about Kleenex brand facial tissues history, see Kleenex Brand Through the Decades.

What is Septic Safe Toilet Paper?

Apr 12, 2010

Scott Rapid Dissolving Bath TissueScott Bath Tissue is known for being safe for use in septic systems. Many people who have septic systems are concerned with what type of toilet papers are safe to flush. Over 20% of housing units are served by septic systems, according to a 2007 survey by the Office of Wastewater Management. That’s more than 26 million housing units using septic systems!

Choose Scott Brand Bath Tissue when you’re looking for a septic safe toilet tissue. For those looking for an even faster, more rapidly dissolving toilet paper, ToiletPaperWorld.com is now offering Scott Rapid Dissolve Toilet Paper.

This fast-dissolving 1-ply toilet paper dissolves four times faster than a normal bath tissue!

Don’t hassle with plungers and overflowing toilets anymore! Prevent plumbing problems, clogged toilets, and septic tank overflows by using Scott Rapid Dissolve Bathroom Tissue. This toilet paper can also be used in low flow or no flush circumstances, such as in RV and boat bathrooms. If you have a septic system, or an older home, you may be at a higher risk of toilet paper clogging.

Prevent clogs with Scott Rapid Dissolve Bath Tissue

Additional Tips for Preventing Overflows!

Only flush toilet paper. Post signs in public bathrooms to dispose of wipes and feminine products in the proper receptacles.

Keep other items away from the toilet. Don’t leave items on the back of the toilet where they could fall in easily during flushing.

Clean toilets frequently for maximum flush power. Poke a wire coat hanger into the water flow holes under the rim to rid the toilet of blockage.

April Fools Day Pranks Online

Apr 1, 2010

Happy April Fools Day to all Toilet Paper Blog Readers!

Just wanted to share with you some funny April Fools online pranks. Traditionally, April Fools Day pranks have included toilet papering (or Tping) unsuspecting people’s houses.

Toilet Papered Barn from FarmvilleIn honor of this funny practical joke, FarmVille, the popular online Facebook game, implemented the option of toilet papering barns. A free roll of toilet paper was given to every farmer. Users can pull toilet paper pranks on their neighbors’ barns.

Some states classify toilet papering as illegal, but others do not penalize toilet papering pranks. If you are looking for a hilarious prank for April Fools Day without the legal risks, try toilet papering on FarmVille. Thanks to FarmVille Freak for the post and pictures!

Google TiSP LogoGoogle is also known for their April Fools Day pranks, including Google TiSP (short for Toilet Internet Service Provider). Google TiSP was a google hoax, a fictitious free broadband internet service that people could install themselves, accessible by flushing a fiber optic cable down a toilet connected to the local sewage system.

Larry Page was supposedly quoted in the official press release:

“We’ve got that whole organizing-the-world’s-information thing more or less under control,” said Google Co-founder and President Larry Page, a longtime supporter of so-called “dark porcelain” research and development. “What’s interesting, though, is how many different modalities there are for actually getting that information to you – not to mention from you.”

The Installation Instructions includes illustrated step by step instructions for self-installation, or offers professional installation service with free bathroom delivery.  It even offered a TiSP Help Group for online help.

Whether you choose to pull an April Fools Day Prank online or not, I hope you enjoyed these funny pranks!
