As a household of seven you better believe that we go through a LOT of toilet paper. Like.. tons. We easily go through an entire roll in the downstairs bathroom every day. IF NOT more often. It’s truly well.. frustrating and amazing at the same time. Then again, I’m someone who has to go to the bathroom often, as I drink a LOT of water, and some coffee. Still, there’s a lot of bathroom use going on. More so when you factor in Risi who is younger and has a smaller bladder, so she goes pretty darn often too.
So for us, price has to factor into the cost of TP. Expensive stuff is just an expense we can’t justify.
Our usual brand of toilet paper was Angel Soft. I like soft TP, and the price was just right. So, it worked for us more or less for many years. For a short time I switched to a more expensive brand, but didn’t really find it much worth it with how much faster we went through those rolls.
Imagine my excitement when along came Charmin Essentials Soft!
It’s a 2-ply toilet paper that’s actually SOFTER than Angel Soft, but at an Angel Soft price**! It’s always good to find a budget friendly product that’s better than what you’re already using!
Now, I wasn’t really sure at first if Charmin Essentials Soft was going to be softer than Angel Soft. I’ve never really tried Charmin before, so I was excited to give it a try.
I was pretty surprised when I pulled the first roll out of the package though, and decided I needed to show you all the difference between the two.
I swapped out the toilet paper rolls and decided to… well… do my business. Wow.
The difference was super clear. Yes, hands down I would say that Charmin Essentials Soft is softer, thicker, works better than Angel Soft! A roll actually managed to last MORE than one day, and it was a day where I was having tummy issues so having to go more often!
If you like strong toilet paper, don’t worry! There is now also a Charmin Essentials Strong too! These products are awesome compared to bargain brands, without breaking your budget.
Still though, it’s way too hard to keep this a secret. So I would like to encourage you, and so would the folks at Charmin, to swap our your current Angel Soft or Scott 1000 TP for Charmin Essentials! You can even do it for free! Just Tweet your TP Swap out request to @Charmin using the hashtag #CharminEssentials and #Promotion, and Charmin will send you a FREE roll!*
There’s basically no risk in doing this and giving it a shot, see which you like better. I know I’m glad that I did for sure!
