CHICAGO — The biggest change in toilet paper since its introduction in the 1800s is being tested, according to the Chicago Tribune.

Kimberly-Clark has begun testing the sales of its Scott Naturals Tube-Free brand of toilet paper, and response isn’t entirely enthusiastic, the article stated.

According to the article, some users are put-off by the redesigned center hole: Instead of a round opening for the holder, they''re shaped like polygons instead of circles.

"How are you going to get your holder in there?" asked user Kari Love.

"I''m in my 40s. I grew up, and they always had a tube. I''m environmentally conscious. I recycle, but this doesn''t look like it''s going to work," Love added.

However, when the company conducted a survey of 1,000 people, they found that 85 percent throw the tubes out with the trash, the article noted.
