Ever think, "I'm going to do something nice for the environment" and then it comes and bites you in the butt? The other week, Adam & I were perusing the grocery store and we saw this display for recycled toilet paper (recycled from paper, not from toilet paper- ewww). Anywhoos, the sign said something like, "Lot's of recycled toilet papers are good for the environment. But we use this special softener so that our toilet paper is super uber soft and your hiney will love it!" Well, not exactly that but something along those lines. Anywhoos- So, Adam & I get it because.. geez, we love the nature.
Okay, so first of all, it's not soft. It's like wiping with paper towels (And not Brawny- the cheap ones). Secondly, it's practically opaque and, thus, non-absorbent. So you end up doubling, nay tripling your amount so that your hand stays dry. Take that, nature! Third of all, we're suddenly having all of these clogs in our toilet. Which we never used to have. In fact, the first time we had a clog, I (being an inexperienced toilet clogger person) plunged and flushed the toilet again before the water level went down and, guess what, I overflowed the toilet (on the 2nd floor over the kitchen). So, soon water begins dripping all into the kitchen and it was stained brown from the wood stain on our bathroom floors (the toilet water was clear, people, it was from the stained wood). Yummy!
These clogs keep happening but I let Adam handle them after that incident. So, we finally realized, "Hey. What's the new variable?" Oh, wait. It's enviro-friendly toilet paper.
So I judo-chopped the toilet paper and now we're back to sweet aloe, tree abusin' t.p. So just a warning if you use environment friendly toilet paper- your tushie and toilet may be angry.
