They make a family budget!

They enjoy a Sunday meal!

They love softness!

They travel!

“Soft texture, holds up for my bathroom needs, leaves me feeling clean.” — Felicia “Literally the best toilet paper on the market. It really stands behind what it claims! It doesn’t fall apart and you do not have to overuse it! We are loyal users!” — Chase “I love this toilet paper. It gives me the satisfaction of knowing that my fingers are not going to go through the paper and into the ‘stuff’ on it. I do not like using anything but this toilet paper.” — Cindyf1970 “I didn’t think I could really care about toilet paper so much, but my dad really got me on the Charmin bandwagon. They buy Charmin Ultra Strong for their house and I initially loved how soft it was and that you don’t have to use much. I got some for my house and came to love it even more. I never get the ‘accidental poke through’ and feel clean after using the bathroom. I also feel like I am not wasting toilet paper now, which makes me feel better overall! Great product and I would highly recommend any of the Charmin products.” — Sjb876

“I absolutely love Charmin Ultra Soft! Although all the Charmin products are fantastic, this one really takes the cake! While it may be soft, it’s also durable enough to use sufficiently. It’s one of my family’s favorite Charmin products.” — Hnhx3x “Charmin Ultra Soft is my go to brand for toilet tissue. Don’t let the name fool you, it’s not just soft but it’s strong. You don’t need a lot of sheets like with some other bath tissue, this works great without having to go through the roll too fast.” — miloNzoe “As far as toilet paper goes, we can be a picky family. It’s important to me to have toilet paper that is comfortable enough for all of us to use and that will last. This does it for us! It’s the only toilet paper we use and we all enjoy it very much.” — FeliciaRD “I love how soft this is. Almost feels as though you are using a soft cushy pillow, but don’t let the softness fool you, it’s strong enough to get you clean without pilling or breaking through, and thoroughly wipes you clean” — shannonb

The Technicalities of Wiping There are specific aspects to wiping that you must remember to show your cubs. Front to back is an important approach to stress. As is using enough TP: Have them count a certain number of squares and tell them to repeat the wiping process until there is no more poop left on the TP. If they have a hard time figuring out how much TP to use, you may want to have them finish off with a flushable wipe when they go #2 (at least while they’re first learning). So keep a box of Charmin Freshmates on hand and make sure to use durable, quality toilet paper like Charmin Ultra Strong so their little paws don’t get soiled in the process.

Be a “Roll’ Model It may seem obvious but it’s one of the most important potty training tips for a girl that’s easy to forget. Simply have them follow you to the bathroom several times in a row and slowly demonstrate the process of wiping, flushing, and washing your hands. This doesn’t just apply to Moms. Getting Dad to be an equally good “roll” model of cleanliness is also one of the crucial potty training tips for boys. Or maybe you prefer not to use yourselves as models. A teddy bear or favorite doll are also good candidates — slowly go through the motions and then have your cub practice on the bear or doll as well.

Peanut Butter or Chocolate Sauce These two substances make for great practice material. Spread some on a plate and have your cub practice wiping it clean with toilet paper without getting any sauce or peanut butter on him or herself. Teach your youngster to wipe rather than smear and to repeat until the plate is clean.

Weaning the Help While at first you will be helping your cub get that bum clean, the time will come to scale back on the assistance. Start by sharing the task — for example, mommy wipes first, then the cub, or the cub wipes first and then daddy. Keep to that process until you scale back to just a checkup at the very end and perhaps a helping hand once in a while.

Don’t Hold Back on the Praise Just like all the best potty training tips, good cleanliness lessons come with plenty of encouragement. Make sure to praise your cubs often as they learn to clean themselves after the potty. Once in a while, even reward them with a treat — perhaps when they reach big milestones like wiping completely on their own for the first time.
