- The daily production of toilet paper is about 83,048,116 rolls per day.
- Toilet paper is often used for making dresses.
- An average tree weighs 1,000 pounds which would yield 450 pounds of bleached chemical pulp, assuming a 90% converting yield, approximately 810 rolls of toilet paper would be produced from a single tree. (thanks to Don Guay)
- In many countries you do not flush the paper.
- Today, there is in-office machine, which turns used copier paper into toilet rolls, right there in the office.
- Toilet paper was first patented in Albany (Small country in Europe)
Paper Towel refills are available – One box is 3200 interleaved hand towels, 16 packs per box.
Most paper towels marketed today contain at least two layers of paper pressed together, but more absorbent brands may have three or more layers. The first paper towels were often bleached white to emphasize their clean and sanitary nature, but manufacturers eventually began to print distinctive patterns on the paper to improve their aesthetic appeal. Other improvements include adding more surface area through embossed designs and varying the length between perforations to allow users to choose the amount of paper toweling needed for a particular task.
HISTORY OF PAPER TOWELS
The history of paper towels may not include tales of hygienic derring-do or sanitizing feats of strength, but it does include a toilet paper delivery gone awry and a creative teacher with germ-laden students. With that sort of human drama as a backdrop, it remains a mystery as to why the history of paper towels hasn’t been made into a blockbuster movie by now.

HISTORY OF AIR FRESHENERS
Fragrances have been used to mask odors since antiquity. A variety of compounds have been used over the past two millennia for their abilities to create pleasant aromas or eliminate unpleasant odors.
The first modern air freshener was introduced in 1948. Its function was based on a military technology for dispensing insecticides and adapted into a pressurized spray using a chlorofluorocarbon (CFC) propellant. The product delivered a fine mist of aroma compounds that would remain suspended in the air for an extended period of time. This type of product became the industry standard and air freshener sales experienced tremendous growth. In the 1950s, many companies began to add chemicals that counteract odors to their fragrance formulas. These chemicals, intended to neutralize or destroy odors, included unsaturated esters, pre-polymers, and long-chain aldehydes.
Apparently they do. According to two studies, toilets “sneeze” when flushed, spewing aerosolized plumes of moisture, bacteria and viruses over many bathroom surfaces. The first study, conducted in 1975 and ominously entitled “Microbiological Hazards of Household Toilets,” showed that this menacing sneeze produced a cloud that stayed airborne for up to two hours and traveled six to eight feet up and out from the toilet. The head researcher (no pun intended), environmental microbiologist Dr. Charles Gerba, had two main recommendations for worried flushers: keep your toothbrush inside a cabinet and close the toilet lid before flushing (finally, a scientific reason to close the lid!).
It took thirty years for a follow up study, but in 2005 researchers confirmed the plume and discovered how it was formed inside the toilet. Unfortunately, they had some bad news for those who thought closing the lid would eliminate the threat. Because of gaps between the lid, seat and rim, the same amount of bacteria escaped whether the lid was open or closed. Luckily, a closed lid does seem to buy flushers a little time to wash their hands. You see, the greatest aerosol dispersal occurs when the water from the flush meets the water in the bowl, so closing the lid and leaving the area immediately after flushing keeps airborne particles from landing on you or being inhaled.
The good news is that normal toilet use is unlikely to present a great health risk. Normal “formed” stool is quickly washed down the toilet, limiting the number of bacterial aerosols that can be created as a result. Health problems are more likely to arise when the toilet is flushed after acute episodes of diarrhea or vomiting.
If you’d like to see the effects of a sneezing toilet, put some food dye into the toilet water, flush it, and hold a piece of white paper horizontally across the seat of the toilet.
And to reduce the chances of a sneezing toilet giving you or your family a cold (or worse), keep in mind these practical tips:
1. Put the lid down before flushing to buy some extra time.
2. Clean your toilet immediately if a user has vomited or had diarrhea.
3. Clean your toilet regularly. When rings build up in the bowl and under the rim, bacteria and viruses can adhere to them and be ejected during flushing.
4. Don’t forget to clean the underside of the lid, seat and rim, which are in the direct line of the germy toilet plume.
5. Use an acid cleaner inside the bowl to remove build-up and kill germs. Use a disinfectant cleaner on the rest of your toilet, not just an all-purpose cleaner.
6. Clean from the least contaminated area to the most, then spray and let the disinfectant chemical dwell for the recommended time before wiping. This extra contact time after cleaning is a very effective way to kill bacteria and viruses.
7. Don’t forget that ceilings and walls are impacted too, so be sure to clean these areas every once in a while, especially those nearest the toilet.
Do you know what chemicals your using? Use a biological cleaner…one product used in all areas.
When consumers buy commercial cleaning products, we expect them to do one thing: clean!
- bleaching agents,
- and specialized cleaners for bathrooms, glass, drains, and ovens to keep our homes sparkling and sweet-smelling.
But while the chemicals in cleaners foam, bleach, and disinfect to make our dishes, bathtubs and countertops gleaming and germ-free, many also contribute to indoor air pollution, are poisonous if ingested, and can be harmful if inhaled or touched. In fact, some cleaners are among the most toxic products found in the home. In 2000, cleaning products were responsible for nearly 10% of all toxic exposures reported to U.S. Poison Control Centers, accounting for 206,636 calls. Of these, 120,434 exposures involved children under six, who can swallow or spill cleaners stored or left open inside the home.
Cleaning ingredients vary in the type of health hazard they pose. Some cause acute, or immediate, hazards such as skin or respiratory irritation, watery eyes, or chemical burns, while others are associated with chronic, or long-term, effects such as cancer.
The most acutely dangerous cleaning products are corrosive drain cleaners, oven cleaners, and acidic toilet bowl cleaners, according to Philip Dickey of the Washington Toxics Coalition. Corrosive chemicals can cause severe burns on eyes, skin and, if ingested, on the throat and esophagus. Ingredients with high acute toxicity include chlorine bleach and ammonia, which produce fumes that are highly irritating to eyes, nose, throat and lungs, and should not be used by people with asthma or lung or heart problems. These two chemicals pose an added threat in that they can react with each other or other chemicals to form lung-damaging gases. Combining products that contain chlorine and ammonia or ammonia and lye (in some oven cleaners) produces chloramine gases, while chlorine combined with acids (commonly used in toilet bowl cleaners) forms toxic chlorine gas.
Bacteria throughout facilities and washrooms multiply exponentially. Undisturbed for an 8 hour span, over 16 million new bacteria form.
