Comment:
Used as Toilet Paper is supposed to be used. I have been a Charmin user for over twenty years. I noticed the slow degradation in quality when seams overlap and causing half a ply to stay because they are not aligned. The last package I bought refused to absorb water and would not flush. So I dropped a single wrinkled single ply to observe how long it would take to absorb the water. After ten minutes it floated in the water without sinking. I scooped it out and put it in the trash in order to avoid plumbing problems. This product has gone from the best to the worst. I will never buy it again.

Comment:
This used to be the best toilet tissue, hands down! and I didn't mind paying more for it. It was strong, and most importantly, soft and smooth. Recently, P&G changed it. It no longer is anywhere near as soft as it used to be. I really don't understand why a company that has an excellent product decides to downgrade it, especially a company like P&G. Also, for months, I never had a plumbing problem with Charmin ultra strong and now it clogs the toilet. It's really frustrating because this was by far the best toilet tissue I ever used in the past. I contact P&G who gave me a coupon for Charmin Ultra Soft which I see also has negative comments lately.
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

Charmin clogs your drain

Comment:
This product may be strong but too strong. All it did was clog our drains over and over again. Only me and hubby here and the best use for it (the rest of the rolls) is too blow our nose and goes to the garbage.
