    Default Fluff Or Fold?

    I heard this on the radio this morning. It was a discussion about "fluffed or folded", as in how do you use your toilet paper?

    For edification, "fluffing" is to wad it up in a ball and .... well ya... Folding is exactly that.

    When this is the only thing of "note" that I could remember from the news at 6am, as the alarm was sounding? Yep! LOL Only because I thought that reference to it being a "B.FG. Day" was the lesser "PC" than fluff.

    You've got to know when to hold them, know when to fold them, know when to walk away, know when to run....


    I guess it would depend mostly on paper consistency. Poor quality leads to more fluffing and balling up, whereas excellent quality would lead itself for just a few folds. Don't Gamble on it. More is better than finding out less wasn't enough.

    Who cares about fluff or fold.. the big question is...

    Should the paper come off the roll from over the top or under?

    Fluff or fold depends on the paper

    It's always a slow day in Borden.

    BTW. Over the top and fluff.

    The Casa de Gonz has 2 and half bathrooms.
    Wifey's has the TP from under the roll.
    Mine has the TP over the top.
    The half bath downstairs? depends on who changes the paper direction!

    You can tell when the economy sours by the quality of the TP you find in the firehouse!
