Kimberly-Clark Rolls Out Tube-Free Toilet Paper

By Chris Scott Barr

Toilet paper. Now there’s something you don’t hear about in the news very often. Not many advances have been made on the bathroom tissue front that I know of. However, Kimberly-Clark has announced something that will shake up your bathroom forever. Well, probably not, but it’s still interesting.

The company has designed a new type of toilet paper roll that doesn’t need a cardboard tube. Apparently using some sort of patented winding technique, they were able to do away with the excess tube, thus eliminating waste. I wonder how long it will be until other companies figure out how to do something similar.

    It's nice to see a toilet tissue company using their technology for more than just how soft tissue will feel when you are wiping you're arse with it.

    Eh, but who would want to use that last layer?
