They sell it because it makes the roll look big so higher profits imo.

That happens at work quite often. I think the main reason is smaller cisterns to save water.

We've been told lots of times not to flush those.

I hadn't heard of this 'development'.

Well, it'll have to be back to buying newspapers again then.

Newspaper would clog up a toilet far worse.

It never used to in the old days.

The outside toilet at the bottom of the yard could handle absolutely anything!

Of course, that was before the wonderful EU ordered us to use toilets that don't flush properly, to save water.
I just flush two or three times instead!
