New Charmin Essentials and Some Toilet Paper Origami

This post was sponsored by Charmin as part of an Influencer Activation for Influence Central

Did you know that Charmin has a new line of toilet paper that is comparable in price and quality to Angel Soft and Scott 1000 toilet paper? It's the Charmin Essentials line, both Charmin Essentials Strong and the Charmin Essentials soft. I must admit I have used both Angel Soft and Scott 1000 one  for the soft affordability and long lasting rolls. I had a chance to swap out my Angle Soft for the Charmin Essentials Strong and the Charmin Essentials Soft and loved them both. To be honest I first got the Charmin Essentials Strong to try and then we ran out of toilet paper before I could take these photos and then our local store was temporarily out of the Charmin Essentials Strong so I got the Charmin Essentials Soft. The Charmin Essentials Soft was definitely as soft if not softer than our regular Angel Soft but you know what so is the Charmin Essentials Strong! The thing I love about the Charmin Essentials Strong is those big fat rolls.  The 6 roll package above is the same as 24 rolls. If your family is like mine no one wants to change to toilet paper roll when it's out. The mega rolls last so much longer between changes. The Charmin Essentials Strong is also definitely stronger than my regular toilet paper brand. 

To put it to the test I also decided to do some cute toilet paper origami. We just got back from our trip to Park City where we staying in the Mont Cervin Plaza Condos by Wyndham for our HELLO LIVE Conference. Each of the toilet paper rolls had these cute toilet paper fans on them. I love little details like this at the high end resorts. I decided to give it a try and I needed to use strong toilet paper for this fun little toilet paper craft.  The Charmin Essentials Strong was just the right toilet paper for the job. It had to be strong for the twist part of the fold to hold up well.

First, you fold about 3 sheets of the toilet paper in an accordion fold as shown while still attached to the roll.

Next, you twist the one corner under. Then, you roll the paper back up on the roll. 

Finally you spread the fold out into the fan and then place it on your toilet paper holder. Fun!
