Tubeless Toilet Paper

Problem: There’s one sheet of toilet paper left—but after you finish scraping it from the cardboard roll it looks more like confetti. Solution: tube-free toilet paper! Paper giant Kimberly-Clark will begin testing toilet paper’s biggest change in 100 years this month says USA Today. Apparently, there’s a “special winding process.” The rolls don’t sport a perfectly round center, but they do promise that “even the last piece of toilet paper will be usable—without glue stuck on it.”

The tubeless rolls also get the green stamp of approval because seriously, when’s the last time you recycled a roll instead of using it to shoot a perfect free throw into the trashcan?

I thought this explanation of how toilet paper is made was really interesting. Vikings used wool? Gross.
