Charmin Complaint - Inconsistency of access to product

Review by Starlord on 2009-05-12
LACEY, WASHINGTON -- I have been using Charmin Freshmates for about three years now, and prefer it by far to any similar product on the market, However, Charmin needs to do something about the consistency of getting the product out of the package. When I first started using Freshmates, you unwrapped the product and put it in the plastic tub, and it was easy to get the individual sheets out. Then someone had the bright idea of leaving the product in the plastic wrapper with a peel-off closure, and the whole package went in the tub. Since that change was made, about 2/3 of the packages do not bring the next wipe into position, like facial tissue boxes do. When you pull one and it pulls the next one up into position, it is nice. When it doesn't, however, it is a pain to try to figure out which direction the product is folded and get one out of the package.

Come on, you make those cute bear commercials, you can do a better job of packaging your products.

Our solution to this problem was to just take them out of the self-dispensing wrap and put them in the tub. We never to leave them in the wrap... which is why we probably never had problems.

Hope this helps!

Hmmm....interesting. I usually use Basher's wash cloths instead.

I've noticed the same thing with the Kandoo wipes I get for the kids. We just take them out of the plastic wrapping now and place them in the tub, I hear less screams of "Mom I need help wiping my butt."

I agree with Sparty and Princi...I also remove it from the package and place them in the plastic container.

I Do NOT agree with Ejack...but that's nothing new.

It's quite refreshing to know we have so many members with freshly scented butts!

'TP' is the type of thing that makes me appreciate America. In a lot of the world, 'toilet paper' is a little bottle of water and a piece of cloth on the end of a stick. Sometimes, there's no stick. TIP! NEVER eat from a communal bowl where someone is eating using their LEFT hand.

In the old days cutting off the RIGHT hand of a thief was a death sentence!

He would have banned forever from the community food bowl because the Left hand was used only for wiping you butt!

And thereby, Old Fart, the noble trade of 'professional butt wipers' was born. Today, we call them 'administrative assistants'.

They also go by the trade name "Brown Nosers". Come to think of it you don't even need to leave the site to watch them do their work, LOL...

Hold down the fort, OF. I have been 'summoned' to make working noises. Payroll transposed someone's hourly rate ($17.25 to $12.75)...and I gotta go smooth down some ruffled feathers.

It's coincidental you bring that up, super. In the intervening minutes I asked my employee to meet with me in 15min to fix her problem with payroll. Her: "You mean how I was cheated out of my hard-earned money?" I didn't mention her habit of siting at her desk (on my dime) sending text after text to her boyfriend. Shaping up to be another banner day! She best bring a better attitude in about 10min.

I appreciate the input, and hope they thoroughly flog the idiot who came up with that packaging idea. Thanks, guy and gals.
