Toilet tissue

awhile back I saw a article on how to test if a tissue should be used in a camper. It said to take a pint jar put a square of tissue in and then fill the jar with water and shake if it breaks up in a certain number of shakes it is acceptable but I can't remember what the guideline was. has anyone seen this or remember the guide line?

If it brakes up, it is good. We don't worry about it breaking up. We like what feels good on the bum

Stupid test proposed by people with too much time on their hands.No need to test. Just use whatever brand or style you and the missus fancy.

I thought Chaparral, the OP,) was asking how to test TP for use in a camper ...(NOT for opinions about testing TP).

Apparently I misunderstood his question.

Well you got your answers and then some. I use Angel Soft since it was one of those used on the test that seems to do a good job. I think most will work fine if you keep the water level up however, I would never use Charmin Ultra Strong since it is designed to be just that and will never break down. Funny thing that as I recall one of the tissues that did not do well was the one designed for RV use.

toilet paper

Yes I was wondering how to test how the paper dissolves in the tank so we can use something other than RV tissue and not clog things up.

Thanks for the replies I tried the water shake test and our Costco brand will work just fine and cost a lot less.

To prove what you are doing, test a piece of Kleenex at the same way. This will show what you DON'T want to use for TP! If it disolves it is "OK" to use!

Surely better to save him the trouble and time. Not a lot of point of pointing him to a test that merely perpetuates the myth that the type of toilet paper is somehow incredibly important. It isn't.

The OP just asked a simple question, not for an opinion on TP. Not a big deal
