CHICAGO, July 12, 2011 (Chicago Tribune) -Kimberly-Clark has begun testing sales of the Scott Naturals Tube-Free brand of TP that doesn't need a cardboard tube to keep the good times rolling. It's the biggest change seen by toilet paper users since the roll first appeared in the 1800s.

But response isn't all flushed with excitement for terminating the tube, often reused for arts and crafts projects or as pet toys.

"You just know it's done. It's over. It's finished. You need a new roll," said Samm Reed, a customer at a Pennsylvannia Walmart. "There's something about that tube."
