Toilet Paper Tales

This post was sponsored by Charmin as part of an Influencer Activation for Influence Central

There are 5 of us at my house plus a couple Uncles who visit a lot. One of us is not potty trained yet so she does not really use toilet paper but the rest of us seem to go through it like it is going out of style.  I buy a large package and then reach for a roll only to find we are almost out and I need to add it to my grocery list. 

I was recently given the opportunity to try out Charmin® Essentials Soft Toilet Paper.  It is a new Charmin® product designed to provide consumers with more of what they want in their toilet paper at a comparable price to the product they currently use.  I try to bargain shop for toilet paper and was happy to give this new product a try.


Not only do we go through a lot of toilet paper we are also picky about it. It can not be scratchy or coarse; we accept only the soft stuff for our bottoms.  One thing we know for certain is that Charmin® beats out Angel Soft® in softness.  When I was recently in the toilet paper aisle at the grocery I also noted that the price of my new favorite toilet paper is comparable to the price of Angel Soft®.

Not only do we use a lot of toilet paper at my house there also seems to be a problem with the size of the rolls fitting on the toilet paper holder in one of our bathrooms. If I buy the extra large rolls of some brands then it is impossible to pull any off for the first few uses. That is SO frustrating! Plus, some of the people at my home claim because of this they can not replace the empty roll. Charmin® Essentials Soft Toilet Paper is a large roll that seems to last a long time and it fits! I did not tell them we changed toilet paper but I noticed they were placing it on the holder when they finished a roll. At my house, and for most Mom’s, that is a huge win!


Charmin® Essentials Soft Toilet Paper, I love you. Nope, we will not be going back to that other brand again.

Want to try it for yourself? Charmin is inviting shoppers to upgrade their Angel Soft® for Charmin Essentials Soft and Scott® 1000 for Charmin Essentials Strong.
