I can’t believe the holiday season is in full swing. For me, that means the next two weeks will be amazing, festive, and a lot of work since we celebrate both Chanukah and Christmas. There is so much excitement setting up our household including putting up our tree, getting all the presents wrapped, and bringing out the ‘infamous’ Elf on the Shelf. The Elf has been a tradition in our family since the kids were born and she flew in from the North Pole right after Thanksgiving. Along with all our fun traditions, we are also in full prep party mode. While Christmas is done at my in laws house, this year we will be celebrating Chanukah in our house with my family and friends. I am prepared though! I have my cookies baked, my menorah up, my latkes made, my Chankuah plates out, and my cabinets are fully stocked with Charmin toilet paper. Yes, you heard me right..toilet paper. You do not want to be that person who ends up running out of toilet paper for their party guests. There is nothing worse than sending a family member out on an emergency trip to the store because you are missing this essential.
In this season of holiday parties and entertaining, what are the little things that you notice when you go into someone’s home? Is it the smell of the scented candles they are burning, the way the festivities are decorated, or what the food is served on? Sometimes it is those small details that stick with you, and you are going to laugh when I tell you one of the things I noticed one time.
I first need to explain that I live in an area where many homes have septic systems which dictates the type of toilet paper people use to avoid clogging their system. So I remember using the bathroom during a holiday party last year and noticing the toilet paper of all things. I know it seems strange, but when you get used to using ‘flimsy’ toilet paper in the past, you notice the good stuff! I happily noticed that their toilet paper was thick and padded. It was substantial, but I knew because my friend had a septic system, she might have thrown extra caution to the wind just for her party. The reason I remember all of this is because I thought what a nightmare it would be if the toilet got clogged and overflowed because of it.
When I emerged I actually asked my friend if she was worried about not using septic safe toilet paper. I was so surprised when she replied that it was septic safe. I had no idea that septic safe toilet paper could ever be thick and luxurious like that! She told me it was Charmin, which I had thought it probably was because of the quality, but did not realize they had a septic safe version. It turns out that not only is it septic safe , but it also has a clog-free stamp of approval from Roto-Rooter. Yes, the plumbing company! The fact is that consumers use 4 times less toilet paper when they use Charmin because of that high quality. Less toilet paper going into the toilet is definitely better for the septic system, that I know. It also means that I can go to the store every other week to buy toilet paper, rather than the 2 times a week I was going prior to using Charmin. Nothing puts a damper on a party like a clogged toilet. Charmin and ROTO- ROOTER ensure your plumbing will stay clog-free even during the busiest of times.
Of course I switched back to Charmin in our home after that experience. I hated using the ‘filmy’ brand that I thought I had to as protection from clogs in our busy household. I was thrilled to learn that I could go back to Charmin, and now realized the toilet paper in your bathrooms is one of those little details that people notice. If Roto-Rooter is confident enough in Charmin to trust it not to clog toilets, then I think that is a pretty good guarantee. I look forward to entertaining this holiday season and getting together with friends and family, and you can be sure that I’ll treat them to the details they will appreciate.
Charmin has been a trusted name in millions’ of Americans home the last 70 years. Be sure to get festive this season but don’t forget to buy Charmin! I can assure you that it will make the holiday time a lot less stressful, when you are fully stocked with all the party essentials including toilet paper. They have two great types of toilet paper including Ultra Strong and Ultra Soft. We love both types although my husband prefers the Ultra Soft in our bathroom. Be sure to follow Charmin on Twitter and Facebook to learn more! After all, Charmin is the brand used by plumbers the most out of all the brands. That is saying something! Charmin makes this momma happy!
