Plastic Strengthened

A thin film of plastic between sheets saves the day

To save embarrassment and "stinky finger syndrome" due to toilet paper not being strong enough to withstand vigorous wiping, a thin film of plastic, or mylar for the space cadets out there, could be sandwiched between the layers on a dual layer brand.

For this to work, the perforation technology employed by the manufacturers would have to improve, obviously.

In response to all the comments made, I feel compelled to withdraw this idea, but I won't. Instead I'm going to insist on the greatness and viability of such a product. What if the "plastic" was a biodegradable maize-starch compound?

       Didn't we have something like this before? Anyway, joelnick, some of us have septic tanks, which requires all materials deposited to be bio-degradable. Otherwise, the tank will be full of plastic sooner or later.

       Peter - The items in your first link say they are "disposable". I don't see anything that says "biodegradable". And of course, regular TP is biodegradable. What's your point?
