The Battle of the Toilet Paper + Cottonelle Giveaway

cottonelle name it

My husband and I disagree on many things like how fast the dishes need to be washed, if our toddler can have a second cookie after lunch and – most often – when to buy generic products. My husband would happily buy EVERYTHING in it’s generic form. While I do buy generic on many things, I have some hard limits on other things. Mayonnaise, for one. Toilet paper, for another.

It’s estimated that the average person spends around 1.5 years of their life…on the toilet. I don’t know about you, but I’d like that time to be as comfortable as possible so I buy fluffy, thick toilet paper like Cottonelle. My husband disagrees and purchases generic, thin toilet paper. For two years now I’ve tried to put my foot down. I’ve hidden his rolls. I’ve swapped them out for mine. It wouldn’t be so bad if he kept his generic TP in his own bathroom – but he likes to sneak it into the guest bath and my bathroom as well.

This time of year we also have several get-togethers with family and friends planned. That means a lot of guests using our bathroom.  How can I leave them with public restroom toilet paper?!  No sir. I don’t think so.

The Challenge Begins!

My husband (ever a good sport) has agreed to a challenge: Put away his rough, generic paper and use my Cottonelle Clean Care Toilet Paper and Cottonelle Fresh Care Flushable Wipes for a month. The conversation went something like this…

  • Me:  I dare you.
  • Him: If I don’t notice a difference then you have to use generic toilet paper for TWO months.
  • Me: You’re on! Just wait…your rear will feel like a new…er…rear.
  • Him: Right. Just prepare to lose. It’s just toilet paper.
  • Me: No it’s not. It’s an entire Care Routine!
  • Him: Routine? Is it set to music?
  • Me: No, it’s not set to music (eye roll) But people do give it funny names on the Facebook contest.
  • Him:  Hey, I’ve got one… The dump–
  • Me: –no.
  • Him: Loads of–
  • Me: –just stop.
