How is Toilet Paper Made?

Not so many people are interested to know, how is toilet paper made? But for curious individuals out there, somehow you probably want to know how it came to the kind of paper that is considered a necessity today.

The process of making toilet paper starts by producing the paper, which is usually made from recycled things. The reusable paper products are thrown away in large bins and they are chipped and heated with hot water in order for the pulp to be created. The ink is removed by interjecting air bubbles to the water that rise to the top that carry any color and are then skimmed off its top. Bleaching is done by adding a harmless bleach to make the pulp white. The pulp will be squeezed using pair of rollers to remove any moisture and lay it on a large and flat surface to make it dry.

In the rolling process, the thin and giant sheet of paper is fed into a roller, however, not before the paper embossed using little stamp found on some toiler paper rolls. The stamping will provide additional strength and beauty to the paper. The two large rolls of paper meet and then transfer the paper into another roller that is equipped with long, cardboard tube in order for the roll of two-ply paper to be created. Then the paper is cut as soon as the roll meets the appropriate thickness and glues it in ends using mechanical arm to prevent unraveling.

The last part of the process is cutting. If the 65 inch long rolls of two ply paper are already glued and prepared, they will be fed into the chamber and they are cut using circular saw. The roll which is 65-inch is cut down into 4 inch rolls and these will be fed again into another unit that will be prepared for the packaging.

Commercial toilet paper as well as those that are slated for individual sales will now be wrapped individually in paper. On the other hand, the others will be stacked then wrapped in clear and light plastic containing around 4 to 30 rolls of tissue paper.
