MAJESTA e-z Flush Shake Test {giveaway}


Tammy Buchanan is the founder of Small Jobs Plumbing - the very first woman owned and operated plumbing company in Nova Scotia.  One of her top tips is recommending that people use a toilet paper that breaks down quickly in water - helping to keep your toilets clog free.  This is especially important if you have a septic system, or low flush toilets.

The MAJESTA e-z flush shake test is really simple.  We took 5 squares of Majesta toilet paper and put it into a bottle, added water, shook and then poured out.  Then we took 5 squares of the leading brand toilet paper and put it into a bootle, added water, shook and poured out.

We then compared how they breakdown - I was quite surprised at the difference. Mr. J was my helper, and you can watch the video to see the results.

please excuse the video quality....I am not used to taking videos

I am sure we are not the only parents that have found their children obsessed with flushing toilet paper down the toilet.  Just last weekend (during a dinner party, no less) Mr. K decided to put an ENTIRE roll of toilet paper in the toilet, and flush.  Of course, the toilet couldn't handle that much and ended up clogged.  It was so bad that the plunger would't do, and hubby had to take a trip to his shop the next day to get a plumbing snake. 

Of course, after performing the MAJESTA e-z flush shake test today, I was wishing that we had been using MAJESTA brand last week.

For more tips from Tammy, please head over and watch e-z Toilet Fixes Videos on the Majesta site.
