CVS Carries the Strength and Reliability of Charmin Basic {Prize Pack Giveaway}

CVS Charmin logo
I've admitted before that there are a lot of things that I don't understand.

Sure, I could research and find out about airwaves and how sound travels to try to grasp the concept of the telephone... but would that make me less in awe of the way that I can press a few buttons and talk to someone on the other side of the world? Probably not.

In the same way, I get that somehow all of the pipes in our house are connected to a water source that can instantly pump in gallons of water when I go to fill the bathtub, but overall it still baffles me a bit.

What I do know is that when it comes to plumbing, it's not something that I want to mess with. Which is why I appreciate that Charmin is making that even easier with the introduction of the Charmin Basic.

Charmin basic

Ever wonder what happens to your toilet paper when it’s flushed? If you've wanted to find out, Charmin has created an informative video that evaluates its toilet paper to ensure that it is safe for all the places it might end up after flushing (drain lines, sewers, septic tanks, and municipal wastewater treatment plants).

Charmin video

As the video explains, extensive tests show that when Charmin is used as intended in a properly functioning plumbing system, it shouldn't cause plumbing problems. In fact, Charmin has been a reliable bath tissue, trusted in millions of Americans' homes, for over 70 years!

Right now, CVS is expanding its assortment of Charmin by carrying Charmin Basic 1 roll. Charmin Basic is two times stronger than the leading value brand when wet, meaning that you change your toilet paper roll less often. Plus, because it's a stronger product so you use less, which ends up saving money.

Combine that with the fact that Charmin Basic has been tested and proven safe for your plumbing system, and it's a win-win!

Charmin bear

If you're ready to put Charmin Basic to the test, as well as see what other high quality P&G products CVS carries, you're in luck! Because thanks to the generosity of Proctor & Gamble...

One lucky person will win a CVS P&G Prize Pack*!

*Prize Pack includes: (1) $10 CVS Gift Card, (1) Charmin Basic 1 roll, (1) Febreze Candle, and (1) Febreze NOTICEables Warmer and Refills

We have always had plumbing problems at this house... I think the line to the sewer is getting overrun by tree roots! We even had the front yard torn up to put in a new sewer pipe. But, I think that the problems are under the street in our court before our line reaches the main sewer line... Grr!

Our biggest plumbing problem is that we have one of those "green" toilets that supposedly uses less water. However, it takes between 4-8 flushes to get it to go down! :)

we learned after we bought our house that the front pipes are bent in eeh yard and will back up reguarly...of course the plumber suggested redoing all the pipes for 90,000...yep, we opted out and guess what? Hasn't backed up again, but we'll see :)

peg42 said...

Many times. The worst was when our son put a pencil down the toilet without us knowing. Sometimes the toilet would work, others not. My husband had to take the whole toilet apart and that's when we found the pencil. lol
Thanks so much

We've been lucky - just leaky faucets.

I always have concerns when I have a septic tank, and I certainly have had my share of toilet overflows, mostly due to the type of tp.

Lots of plumbing mishaps, especially when my daughter was little. When she moved out, I noticed I was going through a third of the toilet paper and those mishaps seemed to stop, too.

We live in an older home. The copper pipes thin over time and get pin hole leaks. Our township almost seemed gleeful as they informed us that the new water tower was expectd to cause issues with the older development's pipes. They were right - water spots would start appearing randomly in the basement ceiling.
