The Fold Versus Sprunch Debate Continues! #TweetFromTheSeat @Charmin #Ad



    It’s pretty common for things to get a little zany around here during the holidays.  My husband and I feel like there just isn’t enough time in the day to get all of the preparations and plan festivities while working full-time and running around with our boys.  Every year, we find something to debate back and forth about in order to have some fun and tease each other as we run around trying to get everything ready.

    This year, we are back to disagreeing about the proper way to handle toilet paper when you are taking care of your business.  Yes, I know, this is a comical topic of conversation but that is what married people who have been together almost seventeen years do, talk about anything and everything.  In our case, since he has always been a folder and I have always been a spruncher, this is not the first time that this subject has come up.


    I can still remember it like it was just yesterday, that fateful moment when I first saw my husband meticulously folding the toilet paper before tending to his hygiene needs.  It was such an interesting sight to me for a variety of reasons.  You see, we were in the early stages of living together for the first time and were both adjusting to each other’s routines and idiosyncrasies.  Also, I thought it was so bizarre because I had never seen anyone taking the time out to carefully fold toilet paper before cleaning themselves before.

    My husband’s response was that he didn’t understand how I could just sprunch up the toilet paper without a care in the world and clean myself that way.  It seemed like a dumb question to me at the time because, who the heck folds toilet paper?  Since then, I’ve polled many people over the years and it seems that many people do fold like Hubby and many sprunch just like I do.  For the life of me, I will never understand what the big deal is but I can tell you that I will be a spruncher until my last day.


    Thankfully, Charmin Ultra Mega Roll lasts longer than even the leading 1000 sheet brand, based on average usage.  This means that, while my husband is busy creating origami while he is on the toilet, I don’t have to worry about our toilet paper running out anytime soon.  Charmin Mega Roll also lasts longer, so you’re less likely to run out of toilet paper when your house is full of holiday guests, regardless of whether they like to fold or sprunch!

    Make sure Charmin Ultra Mega Roll is at the top of the list as you prepare your home for the holidays.  When everyone is together and joyfully celebrating, that is the last thing that you want to happen, for the toilet paper to run out!


Let’s Discuss:  We would love to know, are you a spruncher or a folder?

  1. Charmin is a great brand and I’ve been using it for years. I’m a folder!

  2. I love the Charmin brand and I am a folder. I also can’t imagine sprunching it up to clean myself.

  3. I suppose that I am more of a scruncher. This post made me giggle this morning. Too funny!

  4. Totally admit to being a folder – thought scrunching somehow seems to make more sense :/

  5. I love that you guys talk about any and everything. It reminds me of my spouse and I. And I am a spruncher and everyone else in the house are folders. I seriously can’t get down with the fold. It just doesn’t seem We do buy Charmin because it’s easy on our wallets as well as our bum. Thank you for sharing.

  6. Folder, definitely. My grandma taught me as a kid and it’s been the way ever since. It feels like a cleaner habit to me.

  7. I can prove you’re supposed to scrunch. If they intended you to fold, they’d just make them 20 layers thick in the first place!

  8. I am definitely a spruncher–big time!! I don’t think I have ever known anyone who folded before–but then I don’t go into the bathroom with just friends! I do love Charmin and you are correct- it lasts longer then most of the others.

  9. I’m a folder. My kids are sprunchers and I get on to them. Folding goes a long way.

  10. I am a folder!! We just stocked up on Charmin from BJs! Love it!

  11. I think you folding saves a lot more tp and may even prevent clogging. I think those mega rolls will last even longer when you fold!

  12. I am a folder for sure. I absolutely love Charmin, it’s the toilet paper we have always used. I love how soft it is.

  13. Oh yes, this is the BEST brand toilet paper ever! It is the brand my family prefers the most!

  14. WE love Charmin toilet paper at our house. Best brand!

  15. Big time spruncher here. And proud of it lol. I think you are able to do a much better job by sprunching but I would be interested in seeing any studies that you have. 😉

  16. Oh the fights/disagreements of married people. We are a Charmin household for sure around here and my husband only wants the mega rolls.

  17. Charmin is our toilet paper in our house and this is really great product I swear. 🙂 I’ve been using this for years.

  18. I’m definitely a folder and with Charmin you don’t need as many shares to get the job done.

  19. I can not imagine taking the time to fold the toilet paper. I am with you I always sprunch the paper up.

  20. I have been taught to be a folder and that is the same way I taught my kids. I can’t imagine sprunching toilet paper, haven’t tried it. I guess I am just OC.

  21. We are a Charmin household. I just stocked up few days ago I am a scruncher, not a folder.

  22. This is TMI for me…lol! I’m just going to say, there are dotted lines for a reason 😉
