Choosing the right toilet paper for your commercial facility may seem like a small task, but it can have a big impact on the overall satisfaction of your customers and employees. The right toilet paper can make all the difference when it comes to comfort, hygiene, and cost-effectiveness. In this post, we'll explore some key factors to consider when selecting the right toilet paper for your business.
Different Types of Commercial Toilet Paper
There are several different options when it comes to commercial toilet paper, each with its own unique features and benefits:
Standard Toilet Paper:
- The most common type of toilet paper
- Generally less expensive
- Easy to install or replace
The most common type of toilet paper and typically made from virgin fibers. It is strong, absorbent, and comes in a variety of thicknesses, from single-ply to triple-ply. Standard toilet paper rolls are generally less expensive than specialized or customized toilet paper options, making them a more cost-effective option for commercial facilities, and are available from a variety of suppliers and retailers, making it easy for commercial facilities to restock their inventory as needed. Standard toilet paper rolls are easy to install and replace, and most people are familiar with how to use them, reducing the risk of user error or confusion. They can be made from recycled materials or from sustainable sources, which can help reduce the environmental impact of commercial facilities that use them.
Recycled Toilet Paper:
- Made from recycled fibers
- Environmentally responsible choice
- Widely available
Made from recycled fibers, which makes it an eco-friendly option. It is also typically less expensive than standard toilet paper, but may not be as soft or absorbent, though it still performs the same as non-recycled options. By using recycled toilet paper, commercial facilities can reduce the amount of waste sent to landfills, conserve natural resources, and decrease their carbon footprint, making it an environmentally responsible choice. As with standard toilet paper rolls, recycled toilet paper is widely available and easy to keep in stock, plus they can improve customer perception of your business as those who are concerned about sustainability.
Jumbo Roll Toilet Paper:
- Dispensed from large rolls
- Longer use time = less maintenance
This type of toilet paper is dispensed from large rolls, which are often placed in dispensers. It can be more cost-effective than standard toilet paper, as it requires less frequent replacement, and are generally a less-expensive option. Less replacement time also reduces the time and effort required for maintenance, and it means your clientele will experience less frustration with "empty rolls".
Coreless Toilet Paper:
- No cardboard cord, uses a plastic spindle
- Generally less expensive
- Longer use time = less maintenance
Designed to be used without a cardboard core. Instead of having a core, the toilet paper is rolled around a plastic spindle that is inserted into a dispenser. Like their jumbo roll counterpart, coreless toilet paper can provide cost savings to your facility by not needing to be frequently restocked, improve customer satisfaction by reducing the likelihood of running out of toilet paper, plus there's no cardboard core to dispose of which can improve your facilities' environmental sustainability.
Selecting The Right Toilet Paper For Your Business
First and foremost, comfort is a crucial consideration when choosing toilet paper. Softness, absorbency, and thickness are all important factors that can affect the overall comfort of the user. Think about the type of toilet paper that will be most comfortable for your customers and employees. For example, if your facility is a high-end hotel or restaurant, you may want to choose premium toilet paper with a soft and plush texture. If your facility is a school or office building, you may want to select toilet paper with a balance of softness and absorbency.
Another important factor to consider is the cost-effectiveness of toilet paper. Look for toilet paper that is affordable, yet still high-quality. While it may be tempting to pick the cheapest option available, this can often lead to a decrease in customer satisfaction and an increase in waste. Instead, buy toilet paper that is made from recycled fibers, which can help to reduce the overall cost and be more environmentally friendly.
Hygiene is also important when deciding on toilet paper for your commercial facility. Selecting toilet paper that is septic-safe and biodegradable reduces the risk of clogging and environmental pollution. Additionally, it is important to ensure that the toilet paper is easy to dispense and use, to minimize cross-contamination.
Lastly, think about the presentation and branding of the toilet paper. The toilet paper dispensers and packaging can be a reflection of your brand, so choose a style that aligns with your facility's overall aesthetic and image.
