The Great T.P. Debate! Cottonelle Over/Under Contest

I’m sure you’ve seen the new Cottonelle commercials featuring the debate of the ages – putting the toilet paper over or under when you start a new roll. If you’re anything like me, you are pretty passionate over your choice. I know I actually get kind of annoyed at the people on the commercials that say “Under!” How can they possibly feel under is the way to go? OVER is clearly the only choice, it shows the top of the roll that way – and every time you are in a hotel, you always know housekeeping has been there because they fold the TOP of the roll into a nice little triangle – hanging OVER the roll!! 😉

But don’t let my opinion sway you – you can now vote for your own choice, over or under! Head to and place your vote!

Also, by leaving a comment on this post you will be entered to win 1 of 10 Cottonelle gift baskets randomly chosen on January 29, 2010 from all entries!

Disclosure: By posting this entry, I am entering a contest for a month’s worth of Cottonelle toilet paper as a member of the Mom Bloggers Club.

  • SO TRUE. I love that little triangle. OVER! OVER! OVER!

  • gdpinvestigator

    OVER!! I saw that commercial last night for the first time… and i shouted at the tv.. OVER!! haha

  • Over, there is NO other option IMO. (Im just as passionate about it lol)

  • VadersMom

    Over!! And I'm prone to “fix” other rolls if they are wrong 🙂

  • amy rue

    Oh, no doubt it is OVER! I get itchy if I see an Under Roll!

  • I'm with you. Over all the way! 🙂

  • hmmm….. i can go both ways really……after all… it is for my hiney 😉

  • Ro

    Usually, I go with OVER. But my toilet paper holder keeps falling off the wall no matter how I try to fix it, so it's neither at the moment!

  • Bix

    I am firmly an OVER–why should I have to reach behind the roll to find the end? I too change it if my family puts it on wrong LOL

  • I was saying “over!!!!!” the minute that I saw your blog posting in my e-mail!!! I am constantly changing it from “under” to “over” whenever my hubby or son have put the toliet paper on in the “under” position!!!

  • Jennifer C.

    My first husband felt the TP should hang a certain way, but I could never remember which. I just put it on the roll and figure 'at least it's not sitting on the back of the toilet'. Does this make me less of a person? lol =)

    Oh, if you have small kids under is better since they have a harder time rolling all of the TP off of the roll this way.

  • Sharla

    Over! I'll change it if it's not!

  • TP

    This is so obvious. Over or nothing.

  • Clueless Mama

    I am definitely an over girl as well. So nice to meet you. I am a new follower from Global Influence.

  • why would anyone do under? It's almost unfair but over is the best way to go.

  • I voted Team Under 🙂 *Thanks* for the giveaway!

  • Erica


  • Under, most definitely under! I find it more visually appealing.

  • Judy Greene

    Under is best! The desired length is controlled by the weight of the roll. If it is “over”, it keeps coming. Also, think about a cat pawing a roll. Its paws strike in a downward motion, thus unrolling the entire roll. If the end is “under”, it is impossible for a cat (or dog) to unroll stays put. I find it a real challenge not to switch a roll to the under position whenever I come across one that is coming off the top. I'm probably in the minority, but I don't care. I'll continue to be an “under” from here on out. :o)
