When it comes to toilet paper, recreational vehicle enthusiasts can be demanding customers. But Potlatch Corp. has come up with a new product that company officials believe will keep RVers, boaters and home septic tank users happy.

The new toilet paper, called SepticSure, is designed to dissolve quickly, preventing clogs, said Bruce Woodlief, the marketing director for Potlatch's consumer products division.

In laboratory testing, the product breaks down within just 30 seconds of being flushed, Woodlief said.

"Unlike a paper towel, where you're looking for absorbency strength, bathroom tissue is made to function a certain way," Woodlief said. "In a septic situation, the sooner it can dissolve, the better."

Woodlief claims SepticSure maintains the absorbency and feel of upper-end toilet paper.
