SCOTT ''finishing paper''....... Good for blowing nose on, Wiping a tear away, Sneezing into, Removing sweat from brow and my Yorkie, Gypsy, just loves to grab the end and run like heck.(it is amazing how many sheets are on a roll. It will go from the bathroom to the recliner, over the passenger chair and over the dash, across the sofa, under the table and into the bed room if you dont catch her first.)........
It works well for me and Willa and Gypsy .......

Veterans day is Nov 11. THANK A VET FOR YOUR FREEDOM......

Personally I don't think it makes much difference what you use if you use a fair amount of water - we flush twice - but here is some info I have been posting for about 8 years.

Brand...........................................Di ssolving Time in Seconds
(lowest is best)
Charmin Plus 1-Ply..................................9
MD 2-Ply............................................... ....9
Coronet 2-Ply..........................................12
Angel Soft 2-Ply......................................12
Scott 1-Ply..............................................1 7
Soft 'N Gentle 1-Ply ...............................18
Soft Weve 1-Ply.....................................20
Marcal 1-Ply...........................................20
Soft 'N Gentle 2-Ply...............................21
Seventh Generation 2-Ply.....................21
Quilted Northern Super 2-Ply ...............69
Charmin Ultra 2-Ply ..............................77
Cottonelle 1-Ply ....................................96
Charmin 1-Ply .....................................180

The TPs with an Excellent disintegration rating from a Aug 2000 Consumer Report article are:

Albertson's Soft Choice Ultra
Safeway Select Softly Ultra
Quilted Northern Ultra Soft
Quilted Nothern Soft Prints
Target
Kroger
Angel Soft
Charmin Plus with Unscented Natural Aloe
SoftWeve

I understand there is a later Consumer Reports study out but I don't have a copy.

Have always used Scott's at the house with a septic system, house now with public sewer and in MH. Thought the RV/boat stuff was needed until friends and long time RVers told us "just use Scott's"

Agree. Clay L's chart shows the longest dissolving time to be 3 minutes. That re-enforces my belief that it will be dissolved by the time I get around to dumping my tanks. Thanks Clay L.

Not including newspaper, no matter what brand we use, the Sani Con takes care of it quite nicely.

'Bout the only thing we haven't used is newspaper and Sears catalog. Everything else seems to be broken down into tiny fragments by dumping time. Has anyone ever required dumping their black tank in less than 3-4 days? That alone eliminates which brand TP to use. Never have understood the fixation on "RV toilet paper". Using plenty of water and not dumping until 3/4 full eliminates most black tank issues.

Have to agree with the Angel soft. Have used it for years. Did the "soak test" serveral years ago and angel soft disolved the fastest tho not in nine seconds. (Highly question that time. Soaked up water maybe but completely gone?????????). Anyway what ever works for each.

We have found that the "Value" Walmart* brand of TP disolves very quickly and it's inexpensive.

I have read many test reports. Scotts and Angel soft seem to be the fastest breakdown

However even the SLOWEST TP tested would be breaking up faster than I can get my pants up, go out and pull the handle to dump... So what difference does it make?

The only brands I'd avoid are ones like Tetford which you find in RV stores.

Not for everyong but when we lived on a sailboat our guests would clog the toilet with toilet tissue of any brand including the "special biodegrading" marine toilet paper. After a couple times of disassembling a marine head to clean out someone else's mess I put a small waste basket next to the commode and whenever anyone used the commode they were told to put the paper in the waste basket and that resolved the clogged head problem. I do the same in the motorhome - a small covered waste basket is next to the commode and I tell "guests" to put the paper in the basket. I have not had a clogged commode but some guests give me a strange look when I tell them to not put paper in the commode. The waste basket is lined with Wal-Mart bags and it is easy to dispose of the paper products.

I'm another for angel soft. It's soft enough not to bother my sensitive tooshie, but I've been using it for over three years across 5 campers with no issues.
