    Nothing is safe from inflation - not even toilet paper.    As prices continue to surge in the US amid amid inflation levels not seen in nearly fifty years, toilet stalwart Charmin is the latest brand to downsize its products to keep out of the red. American shoppers looking to pick up an 18-pack of the toilet paper giant's ultra soft option will find that the bundle now contains 244 two-ply sheets, instead of the 264 seen on the toiletry's packaging earlier in the year. The decrease, which was addressed Tuesday by Charmin brass, amounts to roughly a roll-and-a-half.    The brand's super mega roll 18-pack, meanwhile, has also been similarly reduced in recent weeks to 366 sheets, from a previous 396 sheets per roll - a loss of about two rolls. The prices for the products have largely remained the same.    The development follows nightmarish toilet roll shortages seen in 2020, spurred by pandemic-related panic purchases.  Now, consumers will see a different sort of shortage in the paper product aisle of their local grocery, as companies reduce the size or amount of their products to cover...

    A compact toilet paper that packs so much into a single roll it cold be dropped from the top of the Statue of Liberty three times before running out has been created. A Japanese team of researchers developed the 300 metre (980ft) single-ply 'Penguin Coreless Ultra-Long' toilet paper to 'cut waste and reduce carbon footprint'. It is said to be among the longest toilet rolls currently on the market in Japan, with just two rolls providing as much paper as a standard 12 roll pack.  The firm behind the development, Marutomi Seishi Co, says this reduces the frequency of replacing and purchasing rolls, making it perfect for stockpiling. No information on a UK release is available, but you can buy 24 rolls - more than four miles of toilet paper - online for 4,390 yen, which is £28.50, or about £1.18 per roll.  A compact toilet paper that packs so much into a single roll it cold be dropped from the top of the Statue of Liberty three times before running out, has been created Each roll features a natural...

    NEW YORK -- Toilet paper is back on store shelves. But you may not recognize some of the brands.Demand for toilet paper has been so high during the pandemic that in order to keep their shelves stocked, retailers are buying up foreign toilet paper brands, mostly from Mexico. Major chains across the country including CVS, Piggly Wiggly, Safeway, 7-Eleven and others, are carrying the international brands.In recent weeks, a CVS in New York has been selling three Mexican brands: Regio, Hoteles Elite and Daisy Soft. Mexico's Petalo was on the shelves of a Piggly Wiggly in Sister Bay, Wisconsin. And a Safeway supermarket in Fremont, California, had those same brands, plus Vogue, whose label says in Spanish that it smells like chamomile.The stores said they needed to get creative during the pandemic and started working with new suppliers to get shoppers what they needed. But don't worry about popular U.S. brands like Charmin - they aren't going to disappear. Supply chain experts expect the Mexican and other foreign-made rolls to be on store shelves only temporarily, until U.S. manufacturers catch...
