Did you hear the news? The great toilet paper debate is over. The results of Cottonelle brand’s Roll Poll are in. When asked how they prefer to roll their toilet paper (over or under) a whopping 72% of Americans said they roll over.
The vote to roll over says more about Americans than just their toilet paper placement style. To gain insight into how America rolls and why, the brand commissioned a survey of 1,000 Americans ages 18-65+ and found that:
• Those who prefer hanging their toilet paper over are more likely to have engaged in flipping the direction of the roll at a friend’s home, with 27 percent of “overs” admitting to doing so.
• In addition to being more apt to switch the way the roll hangs at friends’ homes, those who prefer to roll over seem to be more particular about the whole subject. For instance:
o “Overs” are most likely to notice the direction the toilet paper is hanging (74 percent).
o “Overs” are more likely to be annoyed when the roll is the wrong way (24 percent).
Cottonelle brand consulted Dr. Gilda Carle, psychotherapist and internationally renowned relationship expert, for her observations on basic character traits associated with how people roll. According to Dr. Gilda, “People who roll over like taking charge, crave organization and are likely to overachieve. It seems to me that Americans are passionate about rolling over due to the sense of control that it gives them.”
Looks like I’m in the majority. I actually can’t stand when it is rolled under, specifically in a public restroom. Because the toilet paper is usually so thin it constantly breaks off before I have a chance to get more than a few sheets and this is even worse when it is rolled under! With the new softer, stronger formulation of Cottonelle, it is perfect for rolling over but won’t drive me bonkers if it is rolled under. Cottonelle’s new toilet paper is extra soft for a more comfortable clean and is stronger which is critical for performance!
Whatever way you roll it, just about everyone agrees that the best toilet paper is soft, strong and there when you need it.
