    I discovered yesterday that they no longer sell 16 ounce containers of ricotta cheese. They’re all now 15oz or 30oz. So if you have a recipe that needs four cups of cheese you have to either adjust the rest of the recipe down or deal with having a 1/4 cup less cheese than you really need.

    Fuck capitalism.

      There are several:

      • DIN EN ISO 12 625-4: 2005 (Dry tear resistance and perforation resistance)
      • DIN EN ISO 12 625-5:2005 (wet tear resistance)
      • DIN EN ISO 12 625 -9:2005 (Puncture resistance)
      • DIN EN ISO 12 625-3:2005 (Paper thickness in use)
      • EN ISO 12 625-8:2004 (Water retention capacity)

      Yet there seems to be no standard for the size or number of sheets in a roll.

      Or just buy a bidet spray. Simple to install, no waste of paper and you can control the angle without having to touch the crevices.

        I like my bidet, but I have no interest in letting my labia drip-dry so I will continue to buy toilet paper thank you.

          Bidet towel? Just clean the bottom real good and all you have to do is just pat-dry it. Am I going to meet more people who aren’t aware of this?

              • The jet spray from a bidet removes shit thoroughly from the ass cracks. Since bidets are effective at cleaning, it should not leave any poop stains.

              • You don’t use them while sitting. After you’re done with ass-washing, you get up from the toilet seat and dry your butt.

              • You’re not supposed to rub it, unless you want a bloodied, dangling rectum. It is used to absorb water, because the debris has already been dealt with by the bidet.

              • People shit only once or twice per day. The towel is replaced after 12 hours, or sometime even after every use, so what’s exactly wrong with it?

              • It isn’t supposed to be shared. I mean, you wouldn’t share a hanky or a body towel with someone else, would you?

              • Most people from around the world, especially in Europe and Asia, do this, so it is normal?

              • Eco-friendly? No paper is being wasted. Also no jammed toilets.

                I use a bidet daily and sometimes theres still some poopy left after a few long sprays, I use toilet paper to dry off and do a check and then if its clean Im good to go, otherwise I hit it with some more sprays and check again. a few sheets of toilet paper is a lot better than no bidet but Im still not convinced a bidet by itself is good enough. at least here in the states bidets are simple bolt on squirters not a separate thing that might do a better job

                I would share a body towel, there is just no necessity to do so.

                I challenge you to get poop on your finger, wash it off under the shower head, and then rub your eyeball directly with that finger. Your towel has poop residue on it.

                Sorry you have to hear it this way, but a butt towel requiring a wash in detergent and even more water than you just flushed is less eco-friendly than two squares of toilet paper.

                  I think you should give this a read. This should convince you to switch to a bidet towel. What I’m surprised about, is that you fail to see how regenerating forests is more difficult than regenerating water. It is very hard to repair the uprooted ecosystem. And no, new trees can not solve climate crisis. You can substitute an eco-friendly detergent. You can clean multiple bidet towels together. Forests, however, takes years to grow, changes in the eco-system can lead to ecological disturbances, and it has to be monitored carefully. This is not the case with water being contaminated with detergent - excess phosphates can cause eutrophication of algae.

    1 double plus = 2.26666667
    1 super mega = 6.

    All these brands talking about how much length of tp there is, but they’re cutting the width. So now tp rolls are stumpy and small

      If you account for all rolls that ever existed, it’s pretty close to empty

  • It usually says price per total area, but this whole thing is why I just buy the recycled ones. If someone’s going to cheat me it may as well be for a good cause.

      Yeah but then the store uses different measurements on all the price tags so you need a fuckin calculator to actually compare them.

    Doesn’t the price tag on the shelf usually have a break down per sheet or sqft?

      Even if it doesn’t, all these packages have the total area listed somewhere on the package. If the $/area isn’t listed on the price tag, you can still calculate it manually.

      Yeah. I just look at the price and how many layers (i.e. 2 ply, 3 ply) there are, and decide from there.

      It means they either roll it more tightly (more layers per inch) or they make the roll bigger (hope it still fits your roll holder) to stuff more paper on each roll. So they are advertising the package as “72 regular rolls” when it’s only 12 physical rolls.
