Cottonelle –> Over vs. Under?

in Family, General, Product Reviews

You naughty ladies! I said, “Over or Under?”, not “Top or Bottom?”.

Over or Under?

Step aside Teams Edward vs. Jacob & say hello to the new great debate: Over vs. Under brought to you by Cottonelle.

Personally, I am an over girl (can’t do the little hotel triangle if you’re an under!), but I’m very rarely the one putting the paper on the roll. That job belongs to Georgia (age 4) and she doesn’t seem to have a preference yet.

Cottonelle brand toilet paper recently conducted a survey to get to the bottom of this great debate raging across America. Though I never stopped to think about it before Cottonelle brand’s Roll Poll, I realized I roll over every time (it prevents extra sheets from ending up on my bathroom floor.) Well it turns out I’m not alone: over 70% of Americans polled say they roll over too, for reasons ranging from “easier to pull,” and “doesn’t hang down” to “it just looks nicer.”

In response to the Roll Poll results, Cottonelle brand developed a new softer, stronger toilet paper, designed to roll with everyone’s preferences. As a long time toilet paper user (bwahaha), I appreciate that they understand that quality, softness and durability all matter to many Moms like me. What better way to announce the results of this great debate than to make Cottonelle even better!

So … what about you, are you Over vs. Under?

    We’re over people here. Butterfly is also in charge of changing the roll but she is specific in her placement of the roll. :)

    Over. My husband is ambi-directional with the toilet rolls and it drives me nuts. And then I feel silly for being livid over toilet paper. Hmmph.

    Over. Definitely. Oh yes. Al wouldn’t notice one way or another, but I always change it if it’s the ‘wrong’ way!

    I totally don’t care as long as there is toilet paper when I need it. There is nothing worse than 1 sheet left on the roll, the remainder of the rolls found under the sink 3 million miles away and you’re sitting there with your pants around your ankles. My husband thinks this is funny, I don’t laugh.

    Definitely has to be UNDER. You ever pull on one of those fast rolls when it’s over? The toilet paper goes streaming all over you and you have to sit there and rewind it. If I go some place and the toilet paper is over, I change it. People probably think I’m nuts, but I do it anyway.

    And it seems that I am the only one responsible for changing it, because even if I left it with just a few sheets there (and the toilet paper cupboard is right beside the toilet), for some reason the people in my house start using the Kleenex instead of changing it.

    Georgia will be an ‘over’ girl based on living with you. I think that’s the way it works – I never made a conscious decision to be under.

    :-) you made my Day :-) – UNDER – greetings from Germany

    We’re definitely an ‘over’ family. The only time I agree with under is if you have cats or puppies that like to try and unravel the roll – Under stops it from coming unwound.
