    We use White Cloud 3 ply Ultra Soft and Thick, it's safe for septic tanks and RV's. I did the "dissolve test" using White Cloud, Charmin and Quilted Northern and the toilet paper sold specifically for RV's. I put 3 sheets of each in 1/2 cup of water and White Cloud fell apart the most, there was practically nothing left of it, I couldn't pick it up and squeeze it out. The other brands were just in a blob with a few stray pieces that fell apart. I could pick up the blob and ring it out. Now I'll have to get Scott's and do the test with it and the White Cloud. White Cloud is only sold at WalMart.

    I think most of the brands cut down on the width of their TP. I used to be able to stack only 4 rolls under the bathroom sink. Now, I can stack 5! One store brand here is still wide but the paper is thinner.

    I buy what ever is on sale,, but I never put paper in my septic tank, That goes back to my HOUSE BOAT days, I never put anything in that I havent eaten first, Ever, and I use ridx every three months, I also empty waste basket every other day, I usually burn it. also I live alone so its no big deal ...cmaras1234

    I recently read an article by a plumber that you should not flush baby wipes or wet wipes down your toilet. They will clog your sewer lines and cause big plumber bills to get the lines cleaned. Just a warning.

    Yes I had to tell the kids when they moved back in about not flushing wipes or tampons.
    Blessed are the quilters, for they are the piecemakers.
