    I haven't tried the jumbos, but have tried some of the those style tablets before. I think they're great. Shoot me a PM with your address and I'll mail you a few to try. Unused of course.

    Kinda dry/crumbly... left an aftertaste. I didn't like 'em. Maybe if they came in different flavors?

    or am I using them wrong?

    You need to get the mint flavored ones. They still kinda give you cotton mouth though. :)

    I've seen some locally, so I can pick up a box to satisfy my curiosity. Definitely appreciate your kind offer!

    Look pretty handy for lots of things including maybe cooking cleanup, bathing, cool cloth if youre sick, etc. The Jumbo would be great but both sizes would be better.

    I have and do use these on occasion, I keep a few in the deuce kit for general wipe down tasks and a few in my travel pack when on the road for business as back ups to my wet wipes. They do come in handy when you need one and weigh nothing in the pack.

    I prefer the wet wipes but do pack these in day kits. Even have 3 in my jacket pocket stored in a little film can type container. A match case holds more and is waterproof!

    I’ve used towels like that but never toilet paper, I think I’ll stick with squashing the roll. The towels are fine but their porus nature might be problematic.

    My fear as well. So far I've only used them for non rear cleaning.

    Not if you're going to be using them the way the video suggests.

    I think they're awesome. Disclosure- I've never used them as TP and they're not really marketed that way. They're great for camp cleanup and probably would be okay as TP in a pinch. They take very little space and once moistened they're pretty sturdy. Reasonable size, too.

    haven't used the TP ones, but have the wash cloth version. Pretty awesome, they hold up nice for washing dishes and yourself. Similar strength as the blue automotive paper towels

    One thing I noticed on the strength with the ones I tried is that it's very directional. One way you can pull on it and it holds up just fine, pull the other and it rips.
