Puncture test score

Expand to view more details.

Disintegration test score

Expand to view more details.

We time how quickly the toilet paper disintegrates. The faster the better - you want your toilet paper to break up quickly as it moves through sewage, making it less likely to block pipes. The quickest takes just over a minute to disintegrate while the longest takes just over 16 minutes to disintegrate.
