Toilet Tissue and Toilet
Toilet tissue has an
obvious universal application that we are reminded of daily.
Thankfully toilet tissue has evolved in quality over time;
toilet tissue impregnated with aloe vera comes to mind. Toilet
tissue and toilet tissue dispensers are a relatively new
invention, believe it or not. Official toilet tissue, which
historians describe as "paper produced specifically for personal
hygiene", probably dates back to the 1300's AD in China.
However, toilet tissue in perforated rolls is a new invention.
For much of history, and even today in large areas of the world,
people employ common items such as sticks, grass, leaves, corn
cobs, stones and the left hand. The J.C. Gayetty Co. of New York
is attributed with packaging a flat sheet toilet tissue in 1857.
Rolled toilet tissue was not available in this country until
around 1880 when the Scott Paper Company got into the business.
Splinter free toilet tissue was not available until the early
20th century. Toilet tissue and toilet tissue dispensers have
now improved to include both flat sheet and rolled perforated
sheets of soft and even medicated papers. Toilet tissue
dispensers have evolved to accommodate high volume jumbo rolls,
regular junior rolls, single sheets, center pull, perforated and
non-perforated paper. Selecting toilet tissue for your restrooms
is basic - if you already have a tissue dispenser - your choice
is limited to tissue quality and roll size. Your choice of
tissue quality depends largely on your budget and how much you
are concerned about patron/employee comfort. Available grades of
tissue vary based on length, width, softness, thickness and
medicated versus non-medicated. Toilet tissues made of recycled
paper products versus virgin timber are available for the
environmentally conscious. The good news is that all toilet
tissue is now splinter-free. Your selection of a toilet tissue
dispenser is more important however. Be sure you consider the
size of the roll you want to install and the location of the
dispenser - next to the toilet is a good place. Seriously, you
should consider the size of your restroom stall and its
frequency of use. A toilet tissue dispenser that holds an
inadequate supply of toilet tissue or is an obstruction in a
narrow stall is a real aggravation to your employees, your
janitor and your patrons. Our selection of toilet tissues and
quality toilet tissue dispensers are for commercial applications
and are based on durability, application and reliability. Choose
both the toilet tissue and your toilet tissue dispenser wisely;
it is more important to customer and employee satisfaction than
you might think.
