Toilet Paper Companies Claim They Have The Toilet Paper Issue Under Wraps

The toilet paper crisis may very well be coming to a quick and happy end; pun intended. Some of the biggest toilet paper manufactures are working hard right now to bring you and your butts a little comfort. Soon we will once again have a plethora of beautiful white toilet paper.

They Are On A Roll

It's looking good for consumers across the world as Big Brand Name Toilet Paper Companies announced that they have got the toilet paper crisis well in hand. A plan to restock our shops' shelves is underway.

Toilet paper brands like Quilted Northern and Angel Soft, already have an ample stockpile of paper on hand. Shipments are already on the way to stores. However, to be sure that they don't get caught with their pants down. The company Georgia-Pacific has boosted the production of its toilet paper by 120%! That means a lot of extra overtime for employees. Workers will have to pull a three-shift work week and work around-the-clock to meet demands. But they are determined not to let the consumers down!

Good news right? Well, it gets even better. According to Kimberly-Clark Inc., the producer of 263 products which includes Scott brand toilet paper. An increase in quantities of Scott's toilet paper has been put into effect.

Let's not forget the Proctor & Gamble Company, the maker of Charmin. They too are also hard at work producing extra toilet paper to assure your heinie stays clean and dry. Rick McLeod V.P. of Product Supply for the company; is confident that Americans will have all the toilet paper they require and more!

The End Is Near!

The end is near, but not for the human race. Just for the toilet paper crisis. By combining their efforts major toilet paper producers, and local supermarket management has put a plan into motion. With it, the end of the toilet paper madness is approaching steadfast.

Business owners realize that during times like these, empty shelves mean panicking public. When there are only a few rolls of toilet paper and other items left on the shelves, people tend to make a mad grab for it. Turning such a simple item like toilet paper into gold. Buying up all they can get. This, of course, is foolish and only creates more issues. What we once had plenty of is now scarce. Thus, making people feel as if there is a shortage of supplies. This, in turn, triggers people to purchase up everything within reach.

To solve the problem, stores around the world have shortened there hours and limited quantities of toilet paper to two packages/items per person. This, with the increased production of toilet paper, has set stores up for a major restocking.

So fear not, your local supermarket will soon be overflowing with that soft, fluffy, white, toilet paper once again. So sit tight! There is more than enough toilet paper available for everyone, and it is coming to a store near you very soon.

Keep The Real Issue In View

Although toilet paper seems to be one of the biggest concerns at the moment. Let's not forget the real problem we are facing. We have a pandemic on our hands. The COVID-19 Virus better known as the Coronavirus is a real threat. The virus is not going anywhere. In fact, it is likely to spread deeper into the human population. So it's going to get worse before it gets better.

Final Thoughts

Things will get better, so have faith and stay strong. We are still producing products. Trucks are still delivering goods. Times are rough right now, but panic only makes things worse. Buying and hoarding goods won't bring you happiness or health. Hoarding goods during this time will only create waste. Most likely many items being collected will spoil before they can be used.

Stay Safe

Since the virus is spread from person to person it's best to avoid large crowds. Only go out when absolutely necessary. Wear gloves and a mask if you have to go out. It's also a good idea to sterilize outer packaging on products purchased. Keep hand sanitizer available and wash your hands often.

You're all in my prayers, keep safe. Please help one another. Share, Love, Be Kind.

      Hi Allysa. Thank you very much for taking the time to read and comment on my article. I hope that you're staying healthy and safe.

      I had no idea that they have law enforcement guarding shelves in some stores. That's so crazy. People can be like animals. Be careful out there, and take care of yourself.

      Thank goodness!

      This whole thing is such a mess and it's so sad that law enforcement has to guard the shelves when they could be out doing what they are actually paid to do.

      I hope you and your family are staying safe and healthy!

      I'm hoping and praying too, Brenda. Not much else we can do. Supplies at my house are dwindling as well. I wasn't prepared for this kind of event at all. I don't really watch a lot of TV, or the news. I prefer to read, or play a board game or even a video game. I only had four rolls of TP before this all started. Plus, I eat out a lot, so there wasn't a ton of food in my house to start with. Oh well, what are you gonna do? I'll just TP Roll-with-the-punches I guess. Stay healthy and safe and thanks!

      Jason,

      I pray you are right. My little town only gets a small shipment of off brands each day and it flies off the shelves before one can get there.

      I have talked with people in other states that have been on lockdown for awhile now and their trucks have virtually stopped.

      They cannot even get soup or tuna.

      Hoping this doesn't last forever, but hoping it does cause neighbors to reach out to one another like the good ole days!

      We need to stand strong together!

      Thanks for sharing.

      Hi Ruby, I think that a lot of people are saying just that "I'll never let myself get low on toilet tissue ever again." I was just saying that same thing to my self the other day.

      I bet doomsday preppers are in seventh heaven right now. They probably locked in their bunkers saying to themselves "I knew them 10,000 toilet paper rolls would come in handy someday. Now, who's crazy?!"

      Thanks for the kind words, Ruby. I'm glad you like my article. Stay healthy, and safe!

      Charlie that was the coolest comment I ever got so far. I loved it. Omg, it so true that everybody's running to the store not even knowing what they are going for.

      My Dad literally went to the store the other day bought a bunch of random stuff. He called me and told me that he just spent over three hundred dollars on stuff he doesn't need.

      I asked him "Why the heck did you do that?"

      He said, "I don't know; because everyone else was buying everything and I wanted some of it too I guess."

      I said, "Well, what are you going to do with it?" He said, "I don't know but at least we have something."

      Now, this is a man who is a Harvard Graduate with an Einstein level intelligence and he's up to this nonsensical buying.

      Thanks again, Stay safe.

      Exactly, I agree with you, Lorna. If we did not have people buying stuff up in bulk like crazy, we would have plenty for everyone. But because of this buying spree, the shelves are bare.

      Then you also have you, money mongers, they buy up supply just to resell them to people in need. They take advantage of people's vulnerabilities and exploit them. Online auction sites have many people selling toilet paper at over 200% of the original tagged price. So if you do find a six-pack of toilet paper rolls on eBay or a site like that you can bet you're going to pay through the teeth. A package of toilet paper may have been $6.00 U.S. in the retail store, but on an auction site, it could cost you over $18.00 U.S.!

      We shouldn't be price gouging each other over toilet paper. It's time like these we need to come together and help each other. The people out there with 1000 roll of toilet paper should be sharing with their neighbors, friends, and families if they are in need.

      Thanks for the comment. I appreciate it.

      All this panic buying

      Are you joining in the race?

      Just like that age old saying

      Cut off your nose to spite your face.

      The adrenalin is pumping

      I am running with the sheep.

      Like the game show on the telly

      Called supermarket sweep.

      What is it with the toilet rolls?

      It really is a farce

      I have nothing for my dinner

      But I now can clean my a**e.

      I’ve a trolley full of kettle crisps

      And pot noodles by the score.

      I’m going to go and load the car

      And then go back for more.

      What will I go for this time?

      It’s going to my head.

      I only came into the shop

      To buy a loaf of bread.

      I have to stop this buying

      Before it gets to late

      I think the best thing I can do

      Is go self-isolate.

      A great article Jason highlighting the need not to panic buy. There are those less fortunate who cannot buy in bulk and these are the people who will suffer. The world will have to weather this storm and we will come out the other side. Thank you for sharing and keep safe.
