Longest story shortest- Scott's single ply broke down the quickest and most fully. BUTT! I can't imagine actually using it - super thin, super smooth - my large "can" needs some toilet paper with bite. The Kirkland brand TP came in second and was the first usable TP, in my opinion. It broke down but still felt substantial to use. The 2 Charmins performed about the same and the Cottonelle (which is what we use exclusively) was the worst, staying fully together until the bitter end. *caveats below the pictures
The caveats- after 24 hours, we shook each container simulating movement. Each TP broke down fully to the point that it would not be a clog concern.
We also, undocumented performed the classic RV TP test - we soaked each TP for a minute and then shook. Again, Scott's won and completely dissolved. All but the Cottonelle broke down a fair amount. The Cottonelle may have been "cloggable" at one minute. We let them sit for 5 minutes longer and shook again- at that point, the Cottonelle broke down fully (but still not as "milky" as the others- but small non-clogging pieces).
In my opinion, we won't change what we use and will continue to use plenty of water and a tank flushing when we dump. That is sufficient to break down our choice of TP.
And now- the shocking twist. I joked that we were the only poop-related science fair project (and we were); but, the 20-something teacher that judged the science fair exhibit said that she did the exact same TP test when she was a kid but from a boating/marine TP perspective!
