The Cardboard Toilet Roll Tube Is Dead: A History Of The Tube In Photos

by | 28th, October 2010

THE cardboard toilet roll tube is dead. In the US, bum wipers, football fans and puppies are being turned to Scott Naturals Tube-Free toilet paper.

Kimberly-Clark makes the stuff. It’s brand manager Doug Daniels tells USA Today:

“[I] won’t disclose the tubeless technology used but says it’s a special winding process. A similar process is used on tissue the company sells to businesses but not to consumers.”

Tubeless toilet paper is one more way to pretend you’re working at an office and not in your pyjamas at home.

And what fo the toilet roll inner, that circle of cardboard that has been used to: grow carrots; make a puppet, Easter egg standsart, and masks?
