Q&A with The Toilet Paper King: Moist Wipes vs. Toilet Paper

Aug 30, 2010

Lately, there has been a lot of discussion over the benefits of moist wipes vs toilet paper. One study has shown that some moist wipes may cause an allergic reaction, but many people find that they enjoy the convenience and added sanitation of moist toilet paper.

We sat down with the Toilet Paper King Kenn Fischburg, author of the Toilet Paper Encyclopedia for a little Q & A on the subject.

Q. Do you prefer moist wipes over traditional toilet paper as a part of your bathroom routine?

A. Yes, if the situation calls for it. Moist wipes will do the best cleaning for sure. But in the end the regular tissue leaves my skin dry and comfortable. For very sanitary minded individuals using both is the best. You just need to spend a little more time. (In my interview with Howard Stern about this subject he was enthusiastic about utilizing moist wipes as part of the final cleansing procedure).

Q. Do you only use either toilet paper or moist wipes alone, or do you always use both together?

A. The moist wipes are great on their own but I prefer using them with regular dry tp to finish the procedure.

Q. Why is there discussion over moist wipes vs. toilet paper?

A. The question of which tp is preferred helps me understand customer needs. It is common for users to try to save money but when it comes to this subject money is not the issue. The best tp may be only pennies more per application and is well worth the extra small cost. Adding high quality premium moist wipes into the equation is like having dessert.

Q.  Does this ever come up in everyday conversation?

A. The subject can be entertaining and informative. It can also be intimidating for some to speak about. Because I am known for my expertise in this area I am often drawn into this type of discussion. I try to avoid uncomfortable conversations with customers and business people unless they are in the industry.

Scott Toilet Paper Mystery Question

Aug 20, 2010

We recently got this toilet paper related question from one of customers and haven’t been able to come up with an answer. We thought that our readers might be able to help! Here’s the question:

I have a old roll of Scott toilet tissue. The name on the front of the roll is spelled with only 1 T (Scot).
Do you know how old this roll of toilet tissue is? I tried to get in touch with the Kimberly Clark Corp, but no answer back from them.

Do you have any clue when this roll of toilet paper may have been made? Leave your comment below to help solve the mystery!


Kimberly Clark has responded that this toilet paper was produced in 1915! Wow! That’s an old roll!

Novelty Black Toilet Paper

Aug 9, 2010

Although colored toilet paper is no longer manufacturer by big companies like Scott, some novelty toilet paper companies are still making different colored toilet paper.

Black toilet paper can be a fashionable addition to your bathroom. This toilet paper is biodegradable and nontoxic.

The description on Firebox claims, “Renova Black won’t leave black marks where it shouldn’t.”

Each order comes with three rolls of black toilet paper in a black tin, a rather pricey novelty toilet paper. But if you’re desperate for a new way to dress up your bathroom experience, this might be worth it! It’s something that probably none of your friends have ever seen!

Recycled Toilet Paper Roll Art

Aug 3, 2010

Here is another example of using toilet paper rolls as art. Artist Yuken Teruya uses cardboard toilet paper tubes as the basis for a cut out of a tree, as though the tree is springing into life from the toilet paper roll itself. Intensely detailed branches carved into the cardboard give these sculptures an atmosphere of stillness and beauty.

Thanks to Lost at E Minor for the pic!
